Hi Guys

For any of you with your recurrent training coming, be warned there has been a few issues with whats in the manuals to whats in the exams.

EG Hoover lifecot When do you you inflate it?
a) Inside before impact
b) Outside after impact
c) Inside after impact

Well yes as i am sure you are aware its B. But the manula says inflate on exiting the aircraft, so the argument that irrupted on the course was, is exiting inside or out? a trainer then said well your half OUTSIDE.
Ok so if your half out then yout half IN, so in theory B and C are both correct. So if you get marked wrong for putting Inside after impact there is you argument.

Oh and on your first aid section DO take note of the refresher training they give you before your exam as there are a couple of 'misprinted/worded' items in the revised section of the manual to what the teach you on the day, It is mainly to do with BLS on a child.

Right finished moaning now

Hi everybody,
been away on holiday for a bit.

The Answer: Sorry to hear you didn't get it. Try again once you can :-)

Everybody who wanted to know: I finally had my SCCM interview and got it :-) Very pleased. Now I just have to wait for a training course...

Happy flying!

hi guys well with regard to the LTN FA's going dual rated don't really know if this will effect the rest of the FA's left at LTN as they wont take that many people away, just a select few and as it stands at the moment LTN is acually very overmanned, this is because of the shortages last summer, the airline decided to take action and increased the number of FA's employed at LTN. The only problem with this is that there simply aren't enough flights to go around so the new guys suffer by not getting flights. Crew are actually having their end of probation line check while they have stars!! (true!) the rest of us have a mix of flights and home standby's for with we have about 50 FA's on home standby at any one time! SCCM's we are very short of so if you want more flights go for promotion!! They are doing the kind of roster we were this time last year 120hours. If MAD is short then i think i know why, the last 3 or 4 courses to graduate the accademy did so in normal clothes! There are no more uniforms! Dimensions has stopped making them, so now when they graduate they will have to wait for either the new uniform, or a second hand one when someone leaves, and have the pleasure of paying for it!!!! sorry if i sound negative just fancied getting on my soap box!!

Hi John

I heard rumour of uniform problems due to the new one arriving and Dimensions have cut back on production, but did not realise the extent of it. I know crew at LTN have been ordering top ups, but due to lack of stock the recieve different to what the ordered, eg Shirt with grey and orange, but due to shortage the recieve the all orange one insted and apparently can't send it back and get a refund. So on that note even though a few new sparkly shirts would be nice for me, I am not risking it, Sod paying Dimensions cash for something I am not gauranteed. Plus the uniform is due hopefully in a few months. Any of you guys based elsewhere having the same problems????
Oh also John the BCCM for MAD was on my flight the other day and said there are big problems also with crew getting ID's so that is also a factor in MAD being crew short.

Commuting to LGW from central London

Hello guys! I am new to this forum. I have just gained a post at easyJet and I am going to be based at LGW (great!!). I live in central London (Soho) and I wonder if some of you could tell me the cheapest and most reliable way to get to the airport. Any information would be appreciated.

Thank you Airbourne-Adamski. The most difficult part is done (got the job!!). I am looking forward to starting the training on Monday. I hope the commuting won't be a problem. In the meantime... We have to celebrate St Patrick's day!

Good luck on your course, I presume you are staying at the Ibis as your LGW based?
You might meet up with other LGW guys and may be able to help as they may be in the same situation.

Good Luck, keep us posted
