Congrats Jangi.

Big up brother. Congratulations are in order. For the oral interview, just form a good (fictional) story on why you want to be a pilot and why you want to join the aviation industry. It is a 20 minute stuff. All the best brother.

Re: ab initio

That is the estimate by the head of flight operations training. He however told me that it may change because of several factors such as the departure of the current group to SA.

orals

Orals were not that bad, however some of the questions were really more a test of confidence than knowledge. Hoping next stop is South Africa.

orals

@capisals
in my opinion,i say the orals were quite tricky.anyway,since we were all given the go ahead to defer our studies and to fill in visa forms,i take that as a sign that we all passed...down south on 4th hopefully.

@Machinegun, I applied way back when March began, and they replied in June. There's really nothing you can do - so as long as you've accurately filed and met all the requirements (and have a working email address of course), you will get called in. There's sorting and what not that they have to do, and once they get a new batch running you will be surprised by an email (don't make plans to be out of the country soon).

It's all on them. And remember, they have to make arrangements for the third party examiners involved in the assessments too so, go figure.
