Byrne - Congratulations!

Any idea what CP you'll be in and when you'll be starting?

Thanks Tubeflyer!

Not yet, I just received an email yesterday asking a few simple questions and that they will be in contact this week with course details. I'm assuming thats where I'll be able to find that out, id prefer to do my ground school in Southampton.

Guys, whats the general thoughts on the degree offered by CTC? Is it a big advantage at the end of training in terms of employment on the partner airlines.

Thanks.

Not at all, to be honest from what I've seen it's not worth the paper it's written on. The cynic in me says the real reason for it's introduction was to obtain access to student funding for the course.

The "degree" will give you no advantage over others in terms of getting a job at the end of training. As the above poster mentions, the only reason people do it is to gain access to student loan finance, which you otherwise cannot get.

Ive read that an iPad is necessary for training... Are Macbooks also acceptable or is it just iPads, if both which would be better?

Also what sort of software is used on either? Is there a dedicated app for ground school learning?

Any Macbook with Maverick OS or newer. iPad with a fairly new OS works too, just down to personal preference. Its an app, which will have the majority of your ATPL learning material. Easier than giving you a ton of books.

Hi! I've been doing a lot of prep for my selection day at CTC, and was wondering if anyone else here may have theirs in April? Thanks!

Hey everyone!

Anyone on the course starting in early October?

I realise it is 6 months away and there is no CPxxx assigned to it, but would like to get to know my coursemates sooner rather than later.

Cheers

How long is a piece of string?

Try calling them and asking, might as well hear it directly from them.

Hello,

Does anyone know how is the current situation of the Flexicrew pool? I have heard from someone doing it that almost everybody is getting an invitation for a selection day with easyJet.

Is there anyone going for the assesment day the 9th of May?

Direct info on numbers in the pool is not common knowledge, as CTC don't publish it. Having said that, assuming one meets the criteria for easyJet then it's really not a long wait to get an assessment just now. I believe it's been in the region of 1-2 months wait for an assessment for most people finishing so far this year-and some have had less than that! If one doesn't meet the EJ criteria then things will take a little longer.

Recently, most whitetail graduates are getting invited by easyJet for assessment (source: selection day). Some get invited minutes (!) after being put into the holdpool. Although easyJet partnered with FTE Jerez recently, they still uphold and maintain that CTC are their 'preferred supplier'. Also many modular graduates are getting those easyJet invitations.
