Hi Guys,

Havent posted in years but to all the guys/gals who are wanting to apply while studying i will give you my little story,

I was training as a Navigation Officer in the merchant navy studying for a HND in Nautical Science and i applied to CTC 3 YEARS before i was eligible for interview. They were excellent as when i had to go to sea they just put me on hold and when i returned i emailed them and i was down for the various interviews.

Anyway to cut a long story short i think it helped me as it showed i was keen and committed as i kept them informed of my progress etc and i am flying out to NZ on the 4th October for 7 months as i have NO flying experience at all! I will be more than happy to answer any questions or hear from anyone flying out in october,

Kind regards,

Scott (Final destination)

Hey Waterpau,

Phase 3

Hi Guys,

I can see X-plane & Waterpau have got phase 3 assessment on Tuseday 22nd August, was just wondering if anyone else has and what sort of preparation people are doing for the interview part, and what sort of questions you think might come up? Especially regarding aspects on the industry as a whole, and the future of it. Also how much indepth knowledge is neccessary about all the partner airlines of CTC? I know its been asked lots on this thread, but can't do any harm asking again, and maybe people have some more up-to-date info.

Thanks

Stage3

Fligth Deck Dave

I have followed this post closely and I guess you passed your stage 2 reassesment as your now asking about stage 3. I am also going to stage 3 shortly for my reassesment but haven't arranged a date yet because I was going to wait until after the PPRuNe seminars!! If thats your plan let me know and we can meet up down there and grab a beer and a chat as we are in similar positions.

Chow for now

It's common that we aviation-oriented people like hanging around with each other, drinkin beer and flurting with women... this is the European Dream

I'll be applying with CTC in about 5yrs time lol

Reverand,

You guess correctly, I did pass Phase 2 on Monday and have now gone ahead and booked myself for next Tuesday for Phase 3. However I am slightly kicking myself thinking that I should've waited for the seminar to obtain more information, and allow myself more time to prepare, but on the flip side the longer I leave it the more it builds up and I just want to know my fate!

Will try and meet up anyway at the seminar definately like the sound of a beer or two. See you there

FDD

Sicky,

Good luck with it, I certainly found it easier second time round knew exactly what to expect. And I found pilapt-prep to be very helpful in learning the counting down number exercise and the hands task (man with circle or square). As for the rest of it just concentrate! They have removed one of the tasks from when i did it last time, and thank god for that. It was the grid with all the numbers and you have to choose the correct odd/even numbers in decending order - well you don't have too anymore!

Hi All,
This thread certainly makes a very interesting read. I only hope I progress as well as many of you have.
I'm down to Phase 2 in september too, which date are you heading there Sicky? Sounds like i need to learn long division and fractions again, smashing!

Phase 2

When did you guys get your dates for phase 2? I've put my availability date as the 24th September (day after seminar) but no invitation yet to the second phase.

See you at the seminar.

Just got the news - i'm through phase 3!

Was anyone else here there yesterday - How'd you do (PM if you like)? Cracking bunch of lads so I hope you all did okay!


As for people with phase 3's coming up, don't worry about it too much - they are all nice people and do their best to put you at ease. The group exercises are good fun and if you just get stuck in you'll almost forget you're being assessed.

The interviews are a bit more scary and it'll pay off if you've done some research into the industry and the planes, but if you're serious about a career in the aviation industry you should be doing that anyway. Just be yourself and relax (applies to the group exercises too).

Oh, and dayum - Dibden Manor is nice!

When you say industry do you mean the airlines involved in ctc (like their history and stuff) or the industry as a whole? Suppose it'll be a good idea to research both anyway but I thought I'd ask.

Congrats on getting through stage 3!

You never know what you're going to be asked, but I prepared for my interview by learning about the CTC partner airlines (history of each one and fleet information), and also reading up about the aviation industry in general, e.g. what are the current "hot topics".

The level of technical questions I think depends on your experience; the ATP guys on my Stage 3 got asked much more technical stuff, where as my interview (cadet) was about teamwork, leadership etc. as I have very little flying experience.

Apart from that there isn't much you can 'prepare' for. You don't want to sound too parrot-like. Have a few examples ready to back up what you want to say, know about your subject and be yourself. You will inevitably get a question you hadn't thought of, and how you cope with that will be important.

Good luck!
