Stage 3, September 26th

I was informed this morning that I passed stage 2 last Friday, and I just want to thank everyone on this forum who provided such great advice, THANK YOU!

If anyone else is in for stage 3 on the 26th, please PM me, it might be of advantage to get together on the day before the interview.

I'm also on CP42. Heard about 28th from CTC, gave them a ring about a few things.

4 October... so close!!

Anyone else on CP42?

There were 9 people there yesterday, including one guy who's on the short foundation course with yourself. Was a good day - covered some interesting stuff.

See you in a few weeks.

Hola,

I am French and I always adapt my grades. For GCSE I wrote the sujects that I took at that age and adapted the grades. In Frnace we used to get a grade out of 40. So if for example I got 36/40 I write down an A, if it's 31/40 a B etc...
I've always done that for all my jobs applications in the UK, and people know it's different so they are ok with it.

Happier?

CTC Radar Screen Test

Does anyone know if the Radar Screen test is used for the CTC stage 2. Have it on a prep disk but cannot see if it is used.

If it is used do you need to remember the co-ordinates or can you use a bit of paper to write the directions down. Bit much for my brain to remember, especially if they are using the 8 directions!!!

Cheers

Advice for stage 3 on the 12th

Hi all
Anyone else here booked for the stage 3 on the 12th September? Would be good to try and meet a few people before hand!

And does anyone have any advice on what to expect for it? I know there is loads on here about some parts of it all (Thanks Borat! - Loads of info from one of your previous posts!) But do they ask you questions about the partner airlines and the CTC facilites/fleet etc...???

Cheers.

I know its a bit far off but is anybody enrolled on CP44 by any chance (long course)

Would be going sooner but family commitments mean i have to stay for a while in the UK first.

SI

There is loads of stuff on here already about the interview, but generally speaking:

They will ask you a few questions (probably towards the end of your interview) to check your general knowledge of the aviation industry and the partner airlines. In my case this wasn't very extensive.

They asked me which airline I would like to fly for, and asked me about current/future important issues in the commercial aviation industry.

I didn't get anything about CTC fleet etc.

18 months does seem a bit excessive..... If they think that you are good enough to potentially be successful at a second pass of phase 3 then you would have thought they'd be keen to give you another go sooner rather than later. Did you try asking about the time seperation, the reasoning, and whether it was negotiable?

Bad luck anyway chap, I hope it doesn't deter you from chasing your dream!

Gaz,

If it's any help to you. I failed at phase 3 16 months ago. I went away and did some flying, got a job in London to sort myself out financially, then reapplied last month. I leave for New Zealand on the 4th October.

Never give up hope mate
