Very interesting so far! Can't believe Easyjet agreed to this!

Wonder if there will be any Ice Pilot drama of epic proportions?

If not they will still make it look like there is. That's what the editing folks are there for.

Why is there a WestJet 767 at 2:06?

I'm actually rather enjoying the first episode. I used to find it quite outrageous that people with this little experience were being allowed to perform this job, but nowadays I realize there isn't really any reason not to. Primary flight training can be conducted on any aeroplane, as long as you've the cash for it. I've been training people just out of school for decades and I am finding it very amusing to watch the trainees repeating the exact same mistakes made by everyone who has learned to fly int he last century. I can see that as the failures are identical and have nothing to do with type, so are the successes. These young fellows will probably make perfectly decent pilots someday.

My favourite bit so far is the salty old sim instructor: "don't sit there shaking your head. The plane didn't miss the centreline. You put it there." "don't tell me you were looking at the far end of the runway, because I know for a fact you were not!"

How many times have I heard the exact thing coming out of my mouth.

I think they are hoping for good exposure.

Unbelievable...

Mortgage their parent's house for a job and then have to brown-nose the checkers with a selection of tea bags...

Zero respect.

There are a number of YT versions of both episodes still up, findable with a little basic searching.

I'm guessing there is a WestJet 767 in the background of a shot because one of the show's locales is LGW, where WestJet flies the....B767?

Mummy takes a 2nd mortgage for the equivalent of nearly 200K CAD so Junior can become a pile-it.

And to think in Canada they vilify guys who work the ramp...

Found this shot of an EZY pilot heading to work:

I'm curious... Has the show been cancelled? There were only 2 episodes made available on the internet.
