Hey there all
Could anyone shed some light on the pahse 3 interview, I know its a good thing to know a thing or two about the airlines involved, but when the subject comes up in the interview, is it in the form of "What do you think of XXXX's Business model" and "what sort of aircraft to YYYY fly?" i.e. asking you for snippets of information on a particular airline, or is it in the form of "What can you tell us about XXXX?" so you end up reciting everything you have learned (or can at least remember!)? I'm not bothered either way, I'm just interested to know, as probably are several other budding stage 3ers!

By the way, anyone who has stage 2 coming up and wishes to ask questions I'm more than happy to give my take on it

There was nothing as in depth as tell us about X airlines business model. The question's they asked me relating to their airline partners were:

Can u name the airlines with which we have links?

Is there one particular airline with which you would like to be placed, why is this? (I said Thomsonfly)

We have especially good links with Easyjet, what are the difference's between Easyjet's operation and that of Thomsonfly?


I'm not saying they'll ask you this specifically as every interview isn't the same as the last but I hope this helps

Hey fellow CP42ers,

When i mentioned about wearing a pink shirt i was talking about myself only but i would love it if everyone else wore pink!!! As for trousers, i bought myself a quality pair of chinos to go with it so Don Jonson wont have a look in.

Looking forward to meeting up with you guys on the 28th!!

Pink Shirts...

So the CP42 uniform is pink shirts and chinos.... Who needs epaulets and a hat these days?

See you all in the 28th, with my pink shirt, chinos.....and aviators!

Stage 2 Assessment

Hi there,
I'm booked in for stage 2 on the 29th. I'll be driving down from Leeds on the 28th and staying in the Travel Lodge in Bournemouth (26). If anyone needs a lift down from somewhere along the M1, or if anyone else booked on the 29th wants to meet up for a lemonade on the evening before, send me a PM.

I'm sure there's more...
Haha.. what's the sample in the Flash intro to that site? Or did someone really record ATC during my CPL skills test?

Oh, just googled. It's Airplane, obviously.

Haven't done my groundschool yet. I'm down to go to Bristol GS with CTC around May/June.

Ah, if only I had already done the groundschool!

Something different for the cp42ers to think about. I noticed on the CTC forum that a few of the chaps out there play some multiplayer games. I'm just wondering if we will be up for some multiplayer games out in NZ as i have a few like medal of honour etc?? I also have some network stuff i could take out as all work and no play....blah, blah, blah!!

Well I don't want to sound too geeky but yeah go for it, from my experince blasting away at some fellow peer can be quite satisfying and stress relieving.

Hey FDD,

Nothing wrong with being a little geeky as playing computer games certainly help when i came to the computer tests!! But i recommend you get practicing at medal of honour and combat flight sim as i have has plenty practice recently waiting for the 4th of October to arrive,

Hi guys, well done to all of you who got through and are off to NZ. Enjoy it!

I need a little directional orientation to Bournemouth if someone could help. I am going to be coming through at the end of the yr after I eventually finish my degree, for stage 2 from South Africa. What is the easiest way to get down from London. I was thinking the Southern train service through Clapham Junction? Do I get off at Christchurch or Bournemouth station? Any help appreciated....

Go to Waterloo. From there you can sometimes get a train which stops in Christchurch, but more frequent are those which stop at Bournemouth. Christchurch is a couple of miles closer to CTC, and would therefore save you a little in taxi fare. It's sometimes easier to get the train to Bournemouth, and then catch a local train back to Christchurch.

Good luck!
