I got knocked back at stage two and wasn't told anything about re-application so I gave up on it and got on with my back up plan. Six months later out of the blue I got a call offering a chance to have another crack at the pilapt. Ummed and ahhed about it - another hundred and sixty whatever quid etc - but decided to have another bash. Two weeks after getting the call back I was quitting my old job and packing for NZ. That was a while ago, I'm getting my hands on a Boeing 737 shortly.

If they haven't called you - call them. Things can change pretty fast in this game!

Good Luck

Interview Wed 10 August

Is anyone going to the Stage 3 interview on Wed 10 Aug and would like to share a room somewhere in Christchurch as 40/night is a bit pricey. Thanks.

I wouldn't worry too much you can grab a taxi straight from the CTC building.

ask26,

Stour Villa is a good bet as it offers really good value for money at 25 per night. The website is www.stourvilla.co.uk I think. The number is 01202 483379

Hope this helps.

Learning to write would be a good start. Yes it's hard, no it's not impossible but you must prepare yourself as well as you possibly can. Doing a few hours is a great start. Lots of extra-curricular activities to talk about in the interview is desireable. If you've still got a bit of time to go before you will apply for the scheme then get started now. They want examples of leadership, teamwork and personal betterment.

Good luck with the process.

HAHA,

Solid advice there, can't agree more with what you have said.

DrRH,

You will, in addition to the above, need to demonstrate some motivation to a flying career. It might be you have a PPL, or were in the UAS, have family connections etc etc.

And yes, part of the selection process requires you to hand-write paragraphed responses to questions, they are testing your ability to use logical, coherent and correct English here.

Good luck!

No trick questions, they are just trying at ascertain your commitment and enthusiasm. Just be your self, and be truthful, and try and enjoy the opportunity.

It won't be an hour long grilling of the entire easyjet fleet, and what type of coffee they serve. More a chat about you. What you enjoy doing, and what you are like.

Technical stuff can be taught. Personality cannot (although I've heard brainwashing can help ).

Cool

Can someone give me an indication of the timescales involved in the CTC programme:-

1. From submitting an application to Acceptance/ Rejection
2. From successful application to Stage 1 interview
3. From successful application to to starting training
4. And finally how long before going to NZ.

Just a rough guide would be great.
Thks for the help.
