Hi Lee,

Goncalo made it, really happy for him. I will make it next time, the only way to stop me getting there is killing me!

Good luck for phase 3!

Ciao

Yeah.. I've got through half of stage 2 as i have to retake the maths test again. Tricky maths .. i knew i had srewed up in the maths test. But today i already got the email to attend stage 3 on the 2nd april. Probably i will do the maths test again on that day.

As for the stage 3 i'm starting to panic a bit, because as most of you probably seen, i was too nervous and my english started to get out like crap, i was simply not relaxed enough. And in my opinion this will be the hardest phase for me.

Anyway.. Who passed or how many went through stage 2 on the 11th ? Anyone knows?

Good Luck,

Goncalo ( "The quiet" portuguese guy ) LOL

Hey Goncalo,

Im going to Ph3 on the 2nd aswell.

If you think you are going to have trouble with your english in "pressure" situations the only way to get over it is practice!
Give some sort of brief to as many friends, relatives and randomers that you can scrape together. I had a similar problem a while ago and practice has helped no end!

Good luck and I'll see you in April!

It's really annoying that i cant remember anyone's names..

I'd be interested to know who made it through.

I've got my phase 3 on April 2nd, so i'll see you guys there! Goncalo, if you're worried about nerves etc, we could all meet up the night before for a drink - it'd probably help with the group exercises if we sort of already know each other.

everyone online hey!

yeah. but my problem is more in the 1st part of stage3 as im not even prepared and since i got here in london i haven't been active with my social life and i even got "rejected" sometimes which i think that lowered my optimism about socialising a bit more.. Nila was important to me as i didn't felt rejected with her and i was sure that she was interested in what i was saying about all this. so guys u are ahead on this one.. but i will give my best again and try to interact a bit more with you guys like i was in the past.

As for the interview i'm not tooooo much worried. well half worried LLOOOLL

if you want to add me on msn i will be happy to talk/write a bit more with you guys.

[email protected]


Good Luck once again!

Goncalo

Well, guys I wish you to have all you need to pass this Phase 3 !

Hey Gonçalo,

Nice to see a Portuguese passing phase 2 at CTC.
Did you do your high school over here in Portugal? Where did you go to University? I am asking this because I also want to go to CTC one day, have been thinking of going for a long time. But first, I have to finish my high school and get high marks.

Don't worry about phase 3. I think they care about your personality and interest for aviation, not your pronunciation.

Cheers,
Jorge

Hi Jorge!

Basically, i did my high school (12o) in Portugal. I guess that this is enough but i also made a 3D course in Saldanha (Lisbon), an IELTS (International English Language Testing System) Test here in London, and i have a Medical Class 1 as well.

You should do a passport as our Portuguese National Identification Card (BI) has less value.

I was also enroled in London Metropolitan University on Airport Managment and Operations (Pilot's Pathway), but canceled the course as student finance wouldn't cover flying hours. I went there because of a portuguese girl that said she got her flying hours covered by student finance, which was a big lie!


Anyway i guess that you only need a passport and the High School certificate.. as for the grades i don't know what is needed, but in the British Council website is stated that our 12o diploma is equivalent to A-Levels. Now i don't understand much of these A-Levels and how do they do it here.

Goncalo,

English is not a problem for me. I lived 10 years in the USA. Lucky me. Problem is deciding if I want to go to university before applying because I don't want to waste a once in a lifetime opportunity. Did you go to university? Or did you just apply to CTC after high school?

hi there

i've managed to get through to phase 4 and was wondering if theres anyone out there with anything they could tel me about what to expect and how to prepare for this.

i only have around 30 hours on my log book so not much IR stuff on there as i'd assume this would be what would help me best?

what are the questions like that they ask you?

any help is greatly received.

many thanks

DJ congratulations. Looks like the light racing in your BMW really prepared you for the sim. Really got to try that some time soon.
Hope you the best at NZ.

Also passed stage 4 today, fantastic feeling I tell you.
It's funny that we had opposite problems with the sim eh Dave, you with the lighter inputs and me with heavier ones due to the aircraft we fly. Myself a Tomahawk and you a Bulldog. The ride home after we found out involved quite random outbursts of joy .
I'll be on CP62, which I know of one other that will also be on the same one, shame you wont be on it Dave. Sim ride was very enjoyable, you know your been assessed but man you have fun doing it.

Eventually managed to catch up with this thread, took all night but it was worth it for the wealth of information! I have stage 2 on 18/3 but that isn't my main concern.

Without getting ahead of myself I have a question about stage 4. I have 1 hour trial flight time in a Cessna 152 (plus literally hundreds of hours of messing around in FSX). If I manage to get to Stage 4 is flying a 737 not going to be a bit much? Have people made it to NZ with little or no flying experience?

Anyway I will be doing well to make it to that stage. I mentioned in my application that I did not graduate uni so I look forward to justifying that at interview if I get there I felt I had to be brutally honest with something as serious as this.

Cheers
