CTC "Wings" Enquiry

Hey Forum,
just looking for the first step regarding CTC Wings application
my situation = JAA CPL/MULTI IR 250 hours and looking to apply for the Wings Program which I believe is aimed for pilots with hours, and no jet experience.

i've been reading through the posts with interest, many saying what stage they are at etc,

I have a Bsc Degree and I am 27 and looking to complete this course,
some people have mentioned Accom and Travel Expenses paid for, which stage is this for...etc and I know one stage contains a pretty straight forward numerical test...

so its all a muddle for me at the moment, if someone could (not having to go into TOO much detail) as I appreciate peoples time is valuable, but just to give me a rough guide through the process in order to get into the holding pool... and what airlines are currently looking at this pool...

also people have mentioned loans HSBC, this would be for when a student is starting ab-nitio etc. (65-75K). Having spent alot of money (self funded) already, what extra expense (loans) would be involved including any bonds to airlines, as already I have a committment of 100GBP a week, completing this course, will this mean ANOTHER loan on top of these repayments.....

alot of questions here I know, but would appreciate some guidance

many thanks

The CTC ATP scheme is for experienced pilots, the CTC WINGS scheme is for cadets with no or very little experince ie maybe ppl.

Why don't you take a look at their website http://www.ctcaviation.com/index.html. You should also look at EVERY PAGE of this thread. http://www.pprune.org/forums/showthread.php?t=94832

Confusing terminology being used here.

The CTC Wings scheme encompasses both the CADETS and the ATP courses - as described here. "Wings" is a common name attached to both courses.

Wings CADETS is for those with little or no experience.
Wings ATP is for qualified pilots (further than PPL).

So HighLow, for your qualifications you are looking in the wrong thread - try the ATP one linked to in the post above.

Hi guys everyone,

just passed succesfully through phase 2 on June, the 2nd!!! Oh yeah!!

Anyone else from that session with good news?

See you on 5 July at Dibden for phase three!

... and just to understand...
How we can manage to reach Dibden from Southampton without having to pay for a 30 mins taxi ride?? (sound like 30 at least... Ouch!!).

So that i am available to any other way to arrange for this journey (bus; car rent, by ship, bycicle maybe!!), let me know if interested in!

Luca,

I heard from CTC. I got through to the sim assessment on Thursday. If you haven't heard it might be an idea to call or email them. They told me in my interview I'd hear the next morning, and I did.

How many CTC wings cadets are taken on and how often.

Cheers

I think at the moment they're taking on 8 a month and that is rising to 10. Alternatively, it may be they are taking on 10 a month and that is rising to 12. In any event, the take up rate is ~3% of applicants.

Just wondering if anyone who is going to stage 3 on 13th June would like to share taxi/car hire to Diben....

I'm arriving at Southampton airport at 16:30 on 12th, and staying at Dale House Farm

Congrats to all who passed stage 2 on the 2nd

Just out of interest, has anybody who was unsuccessful at stage 2, reapplied, and gone on to get accepted onto the course?

Yep, failed stage two ages ago, had another attempt and passed. Think it was my maths rather than my pilapt that let me down. Not 100% sure though. I'm off to NZ in Sept.

A38lephant, out of interest how long did you have to wait before you were allowed to reapply? Apparently its 6 months before you can have another go if they invite you back??

That is correct - It was 6 months. CTC contacted me via email.

Oh ok, thats what I thought. Thanks for confirming. What where you doing prior to applying for CTC then or where you straight out of school? It must have been a pain to fill that 6 months trying to find something meaningful to do!
