I have still have the mammoth task of graduating from uni,but thank goodness its not required! The flight sim is straightforward enough,slightly stressful because u are being assessed.Plenty of folk get through the selection with little flying hours. But they have to show the maturity and desire(as do everyone else anyway) to sell themselves as potential captains. The flight sim just requires good instrument scanning and listening to everything the guy says to you in the brief and in the cockpit!!

Geetea don't forget self assessment.
The assessor Dave and I had wanted you to know where you were going wrong and how you were going to fix it.
This thread is almost as long as the original thread now.

Yeah, at the end of the assessment I asked him how he thought I did and he came back with 'How do you think you did?' So then had to self evaluate on the spot as he was obviously still assessing at that point. He was a great guy though.

You don't need to know how to fly to pass phase 4. Treat it exactly like a lesson and do whatever the assessor says. They want to see you learn quickly rather than your flying skills

Cas/Goncalo,

Have you guys sorted out a hotel for our Phase 3?

Would be cool to stay at the same place..

Also, can anyone tell me when each month the courses start? I read somewhere that someone left on the 6th of a month to go to New Zealand, but wasn't sure if that was roughly the same every month.

Thinking a bit ahead i know, but curious

CP62 leaves on the 4th June. I believe CP64 leaves on the 6th August so I guess they rotate the dates.

I still haven't managed to find out (or figure out) what CP actually stands for, any suggestions?

Ah, quite obvious really....

I've been contemplating possible questions I may be asked in an interview (assuming I get that far), and gathering as much info as possible to help me answer them; one that worries me is what a First Officer's duties include, and what an average day would consist of? Short of posting a question on main forum or speaking to pilots where can I start looking?

Hotel

Hi Lee / Cas..

I don't know yet about the hotel, but for me is fine to stay on the same as you.

Thanks,
Goncalo

Best way is go down to your local flying club and talk to the pilots... no doubt be someone there that is an F/O or a captain. I have an instructor that is Captain on 737 so it was quite easy to obtain any information I needed.

Hi, does anyone have an idea of the number of applicants initially and the number of successful applicants on their way to NZ?
Thanks

I think it's 120 - 150 applicants a week.
What I know for sure is between 30% - 50% pass application stage.. 4% pass selection stage.

We were told at Phase 2 that there are about 150-200 that apply per week, and only 30-40 that get selected for Phase 2. I think she said that about 50% of those get through Phase 2, and 50% of those get through Phase 3. It's then 85% that pass Phase 4.

So about 5% from start to finish. But I guess you only need to fulfill the criteria for applying to get into Phase 2, so although 5% sounds crazy it is more like 20% once you make Phase 2..

I may be wrong with my figures though

A-Level Certificates for CTC...

Hello all, I have been asked to attend phase 2 and phase 3 of the selection process for CTC. My problem is I cannot find my A-level certicates (or any other results for that matter) I am assuming they have been lost in the abyss from moving house etc. I know I might be able to get replacement certificates, but might be cutting it a bit fine time wise. How important are the certificates? Is it a definite no no if you haven't got them?

I'd give them a call/email and ask.. They took my certificates off me at the start of phase 2 day and gave them back at the end of the day. So they obviously do look at them..
