Nice one Easy!

Stage 4 is great fun! just get a good nights kip the night before, as mine was at 6.30

On a separate note, now that i am on CP55, what exactly is provided by CTC? Do i need to get a headset? Flightbag? Whizz wheel etc?

Just put my sizes in for my uniform, well excited! (does that get delivered to me in the uk?)

Cheers

Hi Niagra1 - congratulations on your place!

You will shortly recieve several emails explaining all, but CTC do provide flight bag, uniform (except shoes), etc at your 'Meet and Greet' day which will be held a week or two before your departure.

I'm flying out in September so will see you there. There's a CTC social thread down on page 5 of the Interviews, jobs & sponsorship forum - probably better of using that for any pre-NZ banter or feel free to pm me.

On one of the emails we got from Daphne after confirming our course there should be an attachement that has a list of what we get given and what we have to buy.

I think flightbag, headset and whizz wheel (I'm guessing that's a flight computer??) are all in there.

Not sure about uniform delivery though?

WOW!

Had my phase 4 today and got through! When I left, I wasn't sure how it had gone but got a phone call about 10 minutes after leaving! Was originally told I wouldn't find out until Saturday so was relieved to find out so quickly. I don't think itís sunk in yet, can't believe I made it. Niagra1, I'm also on CP55 and looking forward to that 26 hour flight already!

Only been allocated a course so far in advance as this is what suits me. Just bought a brand new house and my wife's just had our first child 9 weeks ago. Need to get used to that before goign to NZ...

NZ with a Family

Hi All,

I am in a similar situation I have been re-invited back down for stage 3 next year but in the meantime my fiance and I have had a child.

While I was down at Bournemouth in March the CTC chaps mentioned that there is accomodation for cadets who want to take their families over.

Can anyone give me any further info on this as I have tried to find info on the additional cost of this accomodation but with no success so far.

Many Thanks

The cost of having guests stay in your CTC accommodation is under review at the minute with an answer due to be pulished to us shortly as I understand it. There is no special accommodation for familes I don't think - its just a matter of having a double bed in your room, sharing the same communal kitchen and living area facilities as the other cadets (someone correct me if I'm wrong!). If you want something that is more of a home, renting a place a round Hamilton off your own back is not too expensive in the grand scheme of things, but obviously you will have to cover this cost yourself. Hope that helps

Whats the situation with guys coming out of CTC at the moment??

I heard Ezy had cooled off recruitment for the time being.

Is there a hold pool building up?

Yup PAJ, thats basically what I was told by CTC. At the end of the day they can not guarantee that you will be allocated a double room so if anyone is taking their family out to NZ they'd be just as well organising other accomodation for them. On top of that, I wouldn't imagine the other guys/gals from CTC would be appreciative of a very small child making noise during the night (or any other time for that matter) Although CTC did say they expect me to stay in CTC accomodation and my family to stay in their own accomodation.

CTC said to me that they prefer people not to take their family with them as they don't want us to have the extra distraction, which is fair enough but as my Wife said, is it not just as much distraction having your family on the other side of the planet????

We're sorting out accomodation for Lindy and Niamh for the duration of my time in NZ starting in January 2008 (CP57) but as my Wife's a Psychiatric Nurse she can sort everything through a Nursing Agency here in the UK. My Daughter will only be 8 months old when we go to NZ so we have child care to sort out too.
