Hi guyz, congratulations to all who made it through to the psychomotor,

Just wanted to point out that height does matter, why? i have seen some ladies who are so short when they came on line flying training, thats after the training at 43, they were too short they had to sit on like 4 pillows to see infront, and still had trouble reaching the rudder with their feet, after all that had been spent to train them in SA, and besides they could fly very very well, the company had to contend with this shortcoming on their part, if i can call it that but they started becoming stricter on height issues with the ladies.

Goodluck boyz and girls its a great family out here, you will enjoy your training once you come back, but its hard work, people still wash off after coming from the South.

Hi. If you don't mind me asking how long does it take after 43 airschool, for someone to start flying as a first officer?

@Farmwe, sorry but if that hurt, didn't mean it so; @pilot, I understand that after coming back you first sit for an exam to convert your license. Then spend like 5 months learning about company procedures. Then a little training on the Plane you'll be flying. All in all it takes between 7months and 1 year.

@Delt, thanks, I just pray for good health and eyesight. @M2wazim; the lord is good, couldn't thank him enough! @ Pilot, keep praying and don't give up. They probably are still contacting people. If you don't get word you could call HR.
