Partner airlines' websites are a good place to start, although not all have loads of info. Wikipedia is an excellent source of info, detailing the basics behind relevant mergers, brief histories, fleets etc (although you should just bear in mind that it might not be completely up to date. As for info about CTC, their website is as good a place as any to get the info you will need. The interview is going to focus a lot more on you and your experiences and qualities. There is some info if you read through this therad about stage 3 too.

Cool Phase 2 - 13th November

Hi everyone, im new to this posting malarky but ive been a long time reader of this thread. Its got some great info in it and has given me a good insight of what i can expect during my CTC application! Many thanks to everyone who has contributed already!

Anyways...... I graduated from Leeds Uni this summer after getting a 2:1 in Aviation Technology, and ive finally taken the plunge and applied to CTC. So i was just wondering if anyone else has got their stage 2 on 13th November at 13:00?? Also, can anyone remember how many applicants are at each phase??

Thanks in advance,

Chris

PilotChris........during my Stages there was approx 20 at Stage Two, 6 at Stage Three and 3 at Stage Four.

I think these are fairly typical numbers. All in all, I believe CTC have approx 4000 applications for the Wings programme each year and at the end of it all have 12 people on 12 Courses i.e. they train 144 each year (this is just for the Wings Programme, I'm not too sure about their other ones).

Hope this helps

Hi all,

I booked a flight to England, but I'm now in doubt where if you get called for phase 3 its the next day after phase two? Will I have to stay one more day in England just for safety as to be ready to come in for phase 3 the next day? Or is the phase 2 and phase 3 spaced out?


Thanks in advance.

My understanding is that if you are travelling far, CTC will provisionally book you a place on stages 3 & 4 to save you making multiple trips back and forth to the UK. So in other words, if you pass stage two, you could have stage three the day afterwards, and then stage four the day after that. It might be worth speaking to the admin people at BOH and asking them.

Insurance

Did anyone get different insurance to the one CTC suggested?

If so who did you go with and is it a lot cheaper?

Hi James,

I took the insurance package with Paul Jones Services in the end. Got in touch with a financial advisor and he searched around and came back saying for the price, the deal with Paul Jones is a pretty good one, and will make things simpler if you need to claim etc.

I'm due to go to NZ on CP55, so the insurance is now in place.

(I think i was on your phase 2 assessment day a while back, glad to hear you also got through!)

Good luck,

Matt

Thanks Matt,

I have just sorted the insurance out through Paul Jones.

Yeah I will see you at the meet and greet. I think I remeber you but it was so long ago and I ain't too good with names.

Thanks again

James

Hi chaps.

Just a quick question regarding application age.

I am 16 and will be sitting 5 Scottish higher's next May. CTC take this to be equivalent of 2 A-Levels.

When i get them back i will not quite be 18, however should i get the required grades will i still be eligible to enter my application for stage 1?

Many Regards,

Tom

The website does say that your age at date of application must be 18 or above. If you do not meet that you willl not get past stage 1! Hope this is helpful.

Hi Guys,

I know I haven't been one of the more regular contributors on here, but I thought I'd share this anyway. Had my phase 2 yesterday and have found out today I've been unsuccesful. They said I was close though, and may re-apply in 6 months.

I'm quite disappointed as I know I did very well on several of the pilapt tests, but I guess the numbers just didn't add up overall, and in comparison to the other candidates.

To everyone that has now gone on to phase 3 from yesterday afternoon's slot, it was a pleasure to meet you alll and I wish you all the very best of luck

Chin up fokker, you can still re-apply and believe me they do take the ones who have failed before if you improve whatever it is that you didn't perform well, I am not familiar with phase 2 repeats but in the phase 3 repeat which is what I did they give you a long and detailed feedback on what you did right and wrong, if they do give it to you then read it carefully and change for the better, good luck!!

Don't worry about it Fokker. I failed at phase 2 and was invited to re apply - waited my six months and now I'm off to NZ in November!

You'll probably get an email over the next week or so telling you where you failed and where you did well, and if they've said you can re apply then you must have been pretty close.
Have a look at where you failed and maybe get the cockpitweb software or something similar and focus on sorting it out.

If anything failing phase 2 has made me more determined to work hard and be less complacent about the whole thing.

Sparksy, Polo,

Thanks alot guys for your words of wisdom. I've no intention of giving up yet, but I was just a little jarred from the news, as I'm pretty sure I got a 100% on a few of the pilapt tests, sure I may have done miserably at others, and I know I screwed up the maths test badly. But I know you can re-take the maths test at phase 3 or something similar...so this had me wondering about my overall performance.

However, I believe things happens for a reason, and I guess it just was not my time to go through to phase 3 yet. I will use my 6 months to better myself and prepare to re-apply. I hope they send me some more feedback so I have something more specific to focus on.

Again, thanks for the pep talk It was very much in need.
