Thumbs up Transport

Cheers guys, thanks for that. I will look into travel to Swanwick as opposed to Fareham. It's an afternoon course, so I should be able to do it in good time! Many thanks. Anybody else on that same time/day?

Boxerman... Errrr, no offence but it might be a start to read the information that has been sent to you when you booked your stage 1 as everything is there.

Then come back and have a read through this thread for extra hints, tips and clarification.

Hi Boxerman,

Please have a good read at this forum for loads of information on Stage 1 (and the later stages too). You should have already been sent information by NATS to help you prepare and things that should answer your questions!

Anything specific, please ask, but to save us all repeating the same things over and over, learn *everything* NATS has sent you and read the whole of this forum to be as prepared as possible (I know it takes a long time - p22 has a good post there to start with).

Good luck with Stage 1!

Hey guys,

Further to my somewhat anxious post of a couple of days ago, I got the email from HR this morning inviting me to take the online personality questionnaire, so I guess that means I've passed stage 1.

I know it's far from over and I'm not counting my chickens at all, just glad to have gotten over that first hurdle. Good luck to anyone waiting on results for any stage!

I have to say I'm relieved to have passed the testing at the Hilton on 13th March, now for the personality questionnaire!

I've registered for stage 1 tests on April 8th at 13:30 at fareham.

Ever so slightly nervous! But I have wanted to do this for a while as my father is an engineer (can't remember what license, I'll ask him when he gets back) currently working at schiphol who got me into this whole aviation malarky.

Any way, as someone who doesn't exactly know all the ins and outs of aviation and comes from a back ground of A level education, is it mainly important to learn the material they have sent me or will they ask me questions on other things outside of that?

I really want to do this, I'll be gutted if I don't get it!

Had mine today, there not overly hard, but you dont get alot of time, which is a problem. The test with shapes was the hardest, and make sure what they send you, you read. The last test is all about ATC, 30 questions all in all and if you read it you will know it all. Lasted just over 2 hours.

Stage Two Information

how many questions is the motivation paper for stage two made up of? and are they of roughly the same structure as stage 1 motivation paper....ie some STD, some air distances and some information from the booklet?

Advice 4 abz217

I thgink me n u r kinda similar. I was a straight A student all my life, bt frm 15 up i starte making the rong frends, finished my GCSEs in 2005 passing 9 of em they wer average.

then i did my AS yr @ 6th form, passed bt din do 2 well, didn't lyk the subjects.i the moved 2 a college, dropped out half way din tell mum. Thehn i applied to get into uni through clearing, got in, then dropped out half way, AGAIN, din tell mum, AGAIN!

I've bin workin 4 the past yr n tryna figure out wot i want 2 do. N suddenly i just stopped n realised, I waisted 3 yrs of my life bcos i havnt bin makin my own choices. I've bin doin wot my family wants me 2 do.

My advice 4 u ABZ217 is think very, very, hard about what u want 2 achieve in yor life. Research as much as you can, talk 2 lots of people 4 advice. And finally u'll know wot u want.

I've got my interview on monday but as a backup I'm in the process of applicaions 4 my A levels, THE ONES I WANT 2 DO. I'm also on the look out 4 other attractive training ops, am open to suggestions any1.

One thing, I noticed u sed u hav a pdf 4 stage 1 with speed time question, wer would i get acces to that?

Goodluck and best wishes
