Stage Three 08/03/06

Just finished reading this whole thread, it's unbelievable how many people can't be bothered to do this so you end up trawling through the same Q & A's repetitively. It's worth doing though as you do pick up a lot of info!

Big Frank

I was at the phase two selection on the 17th too, thankfully I passed, but have been invited to stage three on 08/03. Good luck to you.

Out of interest when you confirm your attendance at stage three do you receive confirmation that you are expected or do you just turn up? I ask because in the email I was told that earlier dates may become available so am reluctant to book accommodation at this juncture.

Is anyone else attending on the 8/3?

Phase 3 - 22 March

Passed stage 2 second time around on 20th Jan and invited to come back on 22 March. Wondered if anybody else is in a similar boat? Would be good to meet up night before and make the group tests a bit less intimidating. Big Frank still got some lego?

Devil 3 quickies

3 quickies

1. why people keep asking the same Q's over and over again ? Makes the thread boring and useless. No one answers them anyway ! (rightly so)

2. there's a spelling check function at the top right corner of the screen when you submit a post. Might be handy for some ! :-)

3. I've never been on a dessert island, but I imagine it would be quite easy to survive ! Only downside is, you might get a bit overweight !

LOL

Status

Here's an interesting question that I don't think anyone has raised.

What is your status when you are training?

Student? Eligible for student loans? (I doub't it, with 60K already hanging over your head)

Unemployed? Can you claim dole?

Employed with no pay/Volunteer?

Which is it?

The Early Stages!!

Hi,

Im new to the forum and I have been through many of the pages looking for particular information but can anyone help me with the first stage of application, not the initial application but the questions section.
Obviously I want to give myself the best possible chance and am just curious as to exactly what they are looking for from these four questions. I guess its just saying the right things heh!!
Cheers

Well, much to my surprise, I made it through stage 2.

Been invited down to Stage 3 on the 7th March, but sadly can't make it then. Will email them later to reconfirm and rebook.

Just wondering if anybody else on here was at Stage 2 on Tuesday, and how did you get on?

Cheers

Chris

To answer foxromeo9481 about which sim's they use for assessment on phase 4, here goes:
99% of Phase 4 selections are done at Bournemouth on a fixed based Kingair B200 Turboprop sim.
If there is a problem with this sim', and there is availability, the Duchess sim is next. However, they now have two shiny new Diamond DA42 sim's as well, so there is a chance it could be on that.
If Bournemouth is not possible, then the sim assessments are held at the Nursling simulator centre on either the B737-300 or B737-700 fixed based sim. In the unlikely event of neither of these being available, then you could find yourself on a full motion A320 or B737-300, albeit with the motion off.
Hope that answers your question!!
If anyone else wants info on the sim's, let me know and I'll do my best to answer.

2 people interview you, an HR person and a Training Captain. Lasts about an hour but feels like 15 minutes.
