ATC IssuesA place where pilots may enter the 'lions den' that is Air Traffic Control in complete safety and find out the answers to all those obscure topics which you always wanted to know the answer to but were afraid to ask.
Stage 1 tomorrow.. I'm getting really nervous. Worrying about the planes and the data they gave, I know its been asked already but I'm not sure if anyone has answered.. are there many questions in the tests that require lots of knowledge about them all, or is it pretty basic? Thanks. Good luck to all the others going tomorrow!
I know it was the cubes that did for me and the 2nd and 3rd cube formations at that. I'll try again next year.
The best of luck to everyone still in. I was disappointed going out at stage 1 so I imagine going out at Stage 3 can be heartbreaking so make sure you prepare as well as you possibly can, don't come out thinking you could have done just one thing more to prepare.
as i recall arround 35 diagrams (am sure 90%+ correct, probably 95%+).
Cubes I did all 40 of them, but i'd say about 40% correct.
I have no idea if they want precision, speed or a combination. I would guess on combination of both... I surelly would like to know the trade-off since its not inexpensive to go there for the testing and, except if you are very at easy with it (meaning, doing it all easy and on time), than it would be good that you can choose if you go for speed or precision without that being a guess...
Has everyone that heard back being succesful heard back sooner rather than later? It seems people who have waited for any considerable amount of time have not been succesful. Anyone have anything that goes against this trend?
I had my stage one yesterday it went relatively well passed the first section with I believe some ease. Although I was a little worried when only 6 names including myself were called to leave the room I thought I was out (here were about 18 at the start). After the cubes and diagramming though I felt a lot less xonfident with my performance.
Good luck to anyone on stage one today.
Sorry for any mistakes wrote this on the train on my phone.
Got my email from NATS, its a no for me, ah well. I did fine on the ATC obviously, only completed 36 of 50 diagramming but I was certain on 99% of them. On the cubes I did complete them but was not confident at all.
Oh well, I WILL be applying again next year as I know what to expect. Good luck to everyone else
