As at now if at all we are waiting for any feedback, it is with scarce optimism. Today is the last day for psychomotor test for guys who received their invitations last week.

Scarce being the operative word yoh!!. i did mine with the last group, watching hopelessly as the hoops pass you by, that was rather depressing. But oh well, C'est la vie.

I want to wish all the very best in your recruitment with the carrier! From what i hear or what i have been told, you guys are the least of their priorities right now. What it means it could take more than a year for the successful candidates to start their flight training and even after that, a longer period flying as a S/O receiving close to peanuts as your wages. Mr.Corona is a saving grace for the carrier because just few months ago, the carrier financial position was very bad and it continues being the case. After Mr. Corona dies away carriers like ET and WB who were dominating and giving the carrier headache will come back more aggressively especially WB now that it looks QR will be buying 49% stake of it.

So like i started, i wish you all the best BUT don't be too naive thinking things will happen as soon as yesterday. It will be a very long long wait with the hopes that they wouldn't cancel the program last minute as it has happen in the past when guys were about to leave for SA!

I must admit this is might not be the best news to hear, but in my opinion, I think it is prudent to remain calm and wait for official communication from the recruiters. Corona for sure will delay the process but a delay is not necesarily retreat.

For all those waiting for the psychomotor results all the best! This opportunity can only be delayed bit not denied so be still!

When is it they cancelled? I remember in 2013 they introduced the degree requirement which cut out form 4 leavers like had been the case the preceding years.
