Single engine fleet consists of: Cessna 172s (N, R and S models), R2160s and A160s (licence built R2160s from Alpha Aviation just across the road from CTC in Hamilton).
The Da-20s are not flying at the moment; the idea is that eventually there will only be A160s in the single engine fleet.
The twin-engine fleet consists of Piper Seminoles and Da-42s. The Seminoles are now only used occasionally for instructor training and instructor IR renewals, and the word is that they will be sold soon. The upshot is that all multi engine training for cadets is completed on the Da-42 and in the Da-42 simulator (FNPT2).

CTC cadet training

Hi, my name is Marc and i currently attend University in Newcastle. About a week agao i was invited to the first stage of selection for the ctc cadet scheme. i am going down to Bournemouth on the 14th of Aug for this. Would you be able to tell me what i should expect in the first stage of selection? what is the day made up of? ii am quite worried that i will not know how to prepare for it.

Many Thanks

Marc

Marc before everyone rips into, I suggest you read through this thread it tells everything about the day.

There is also a description of the selection stages on the CTC wings website as well.

This is how stage two works:

20 minute presentation about the partner airlines and an overview of the scheme should you pass all four stages and get to go to NZ/Bournemouth.

After that you then go into the assessment room and do a simple maths test, 15 questions in 15 minutes, this part you can prepare for. Make sure you are sharp on long division and multiplication, know your square numbers and know how to rearrange basic equations.

After the maths test you go straight into the PILAPT testing.

This consists of 7 or 8 tests that last about an hour all done using the joystick and keyboard in front of you.

If you go on the PILAPT website there are some screen shots of the tests. These are aptitude tests though so you can't really prepare for them, you either have those particular abilities or not (so they say).

Good luck marc

phase 3 ctc

hi everyone just wanted to say first of all that this forum is a great help for all trying to gain entry to ctc. i have my phase 3 in a couple of weeks.....im stuck on how to fill in the questions ctc ask you to send in especially motivation for flying as i have no previous flying hours to mention. is this a problem for me and also does anyone have any ideas on what i could write bar the usual kinds of things???? secondly does being a really young age hamper my chances of getting through as im only 20 at the moment?? also if some of you who have been to stage three could give some examples of questions asked in the interview stage it would be helpful.......do you only need to know about ctc's partners planes, destination etc or is their anything else they ask you about planes etc. ive done a lot of research on the partners and boeing and airbus planes.......is that enough??
thanks

Well thats it - I just returned from Stage 3 and...
I was unsuccessful.
Well...kind of.

I got re-invited back! So I must have just missed it!
I reckon it was because my age. I'm only 18 so I think that worked against me, I don't think I was mature enough.

As for the person above me - just spill your heart out. Having no flying experience will not work against you and they do love younger people. Just as long as they are mature.
I was re-invited to apply in a year as I showed a lot of "potential" and I actually thats better than getting in first time because I know exactly what I need to get in and I should be EXTREMELY well prepared next year.

Oh and as for the 4 questions - thats just up to you, and you alone. No one can help you with that - just structure it well, indruduce - prove/explain - conclude.

They want to know you WANT this, and they want to see that you're prepared to put in the work.

I know you'll be thinking "pfft, I don't want to take advice from a guy that just failed" but trust me, I was BEYOND prepared. I looked at every angle and I had every base covered (except the one major other part that I probably failed on).

Anyways what I'm saying is - I'm HAPPY I was unsuccessful because the experience I have gained is exceptional and I now feel even more determined to take on the world. I KNOW I'll be a damn good pilot, I just need someone else to take that chance.

If you think what the heck, this guy seems alright, email me on [email protected] . I've got a lot of contacts that got me where I am today that have shared a lot of information with me. Feel free to get in touch.

Jason.

Hello, I had my phase 2 on Tuesday 10th July in the afternoon but I still havenít had an email letting me know if I have been successful or not.

How long does it normally take? as some people have mentioned the same day.

Is it worth emailing ctc and asking or am I being to impatient?

Thanks

Call them - you should have had a response the same day (sometimes the next morning). Make sure you're checking the correct email address.

CTC are having a problem with their servers.

Go onto your online application and it should either say "PASSED" or "UNSUCCESSFUL" there.
