Easy have been continuing their cadet scheme and recruitment drive will increase in 2016 onwards. Twenty or so went through the process last year with seven gaining pilot positions and now about to start the airbus type rating. Selection for Easy Jet can be run on the 737 simulator or A320 simulator. We also run extensive courses for pre-type training on the A320 lead by A320 captains. This involves ground school, introduction in the airbus simulator to cockpit flows, pre-flight / power up / programming the MCDU (FMC) and introduction to philosophy on the airbus type. Then a normal A to B route (starting from Gate as an option), usually with a minor technical issue to introduce ECAM followed by a normal take-off, flying the flight plan and finally a normal landing at destination. Having an initial training detail like this prior to the type rating really helps to put the main elements of the type rating course into context. A good example and overview is shown here in this video. A typical training session for the above is 3 to 5hrs in duration (depending what is to be covered), so the video simply shows a snap shot of the style and type of instruction.
