You need to be a Kenyan Citizen.

Congrats

Bravo to all of you guys for making this far.
Now onto other matters, you will get seriously bored once you get to this place be it 43 or Progress. So you guys need to sort yourselves out in terms of entertainment n stuff. We will appreciate movies, series and games alot. Infact we will appreciate anyone who will come with a 1TB dedicated external hard disk full of the same. I know all of those who did the medicals are in but it will be in order to still wish you all the best of luck. For those who didn't make it, no regrets. Life goes on. Cheers.

It would be unfortunate if someone starts accumulating 1 TB of multimedia then get's disqualified in the remaining two stages :-(
If I make it past the orals then feel free to PM me your requests and I'll be sure to bring them with me.

I'm pretty sure at this stage no one is going to be eliminated unless they do have a serious medical complication. In any case the psychomotor test tells them who they want working for them, the medical tests are just part of every pilot's life. So ny virtue of doing those tests you are pretty much in and you can count them as your initiation into the profession. About movies and stuff I will pm you when you r 100% sure you are coming to 43. All the best bro.

Passport

they are asking for confirmation of documentation...i got to get a passport now. Somebody told me that at Eldoret or Kisumu you can get the passport in two days, or even within a day. Can somebody confirm this?

I doubt if that's true. I applied at Nyayo house and they said 3 weeks. I don't think it would take a shorter period at their regional offices. But you could try and let us know for posterity's sake

To be very honest...i didnt want to reply to yre post.

However, you need to catch a wake-up.

You will never cut it in my B777-LR and definately

not in my Arrow. Why dont you go home and give

the men/woman who have the aptitude a chance.

Your want of play stuff instead of studying yre books
speaks volumes here.

Stay far away....very far away from me...

And no im not with KQ...Just a concerned ATPL who
has to eventually mentor nutters like you out the pool.

You make very dissparaging remarks about 43 air school.

Well enjoy yre stay while you can bleed the system. We nor Africa will miss you in our skies

@Darkroomsource, actually you can. Get in touch with a travel agent for those of you who are willing to part with some sum, I got mine in about 5hrs when I was applying. Parted with 7k though. If you are in Nakuru and need the help, I would be happy to point you to the guy. Congrats by the way for all who made it!

On the contrary, I got my 32-page p/p on day 2(after app.) at Nyayo hse for 4500/- just last week.

I think the 3 weeks may be due to the upcoming festivities although I have some doubt.

How did you know when it was ready? Did you use the tracking facility on their website or they called you?

P/P

The immigration officer told me to come for it then. I got it the next day after applying for it.

As for the whole passport thing,it takes about three weeks to be ready.If you have someone on the inside it should take say 2days.
