Kerosine, I'm off to NZ August this year, and according to our schedule we're due to return to the Uk permanently in May/June. By my reckoning that means we'll get June/July here, August-March in NZ...winter, spring and summer! Then back in the UK for summer '09.

Can't possible get much worse than in scotland! Our amateur/junior footy season is 6 weeks behind because of all the postponements because of the crappy weather!

Just a quick question to anybody who has done phase 3 recently - its held at the Crew Training Centre in Bournemouth now, right? A lot of earlier posts on this thread say its at Dibden, but I was led to believe it was now held in Bournemouth.

I got a question. I'm thinking of doing an aerospace/aeronautical engineering degree. I will probably need student finance. After completing the degree I plan on getting some professional experience and than apply for CTC. My question is will CTC not let me have the unsecured loan because I already am repaying the student loan I took to get my degree?

Cheers dj.
Are you satisfied with uni of Liverpool? I've been looking at unis that have good mechanical engineering departments and have seen that Liverpool, Sheffield, Bristol, Bath, Southampton and of course Cambridge are good.

Another question, what would you recommend doing, the BEng and save a year or the MEng?

Thank you for the good advice. I was worried that RR, Airbus, BAE, etc only accepted those that had gone through the MEng way. BTW did you take your degree with pilot studies?

Well done dj, I am about to embark on a similar venture. Iím just about to finish Uni and apply for CTC wings, how quickly did it take for you to get through the selection process from start to offer? I have a place at college of law, in order to get a job that will pay enough for modular training if CTC does not work out. However, they want a sizeable chunk of money by the end of August, and I was thinking of taking the tests down at CTC beginning of July, do think this is enough time?

phase 2 questions

I just wnating to know of some help please and many many thank you to Mr DJ and Mr V Bells for your support.

I have bought some software to practice the deviation and flying through frame tests. On the devaition test my deviation is around 70 (with zero being best). Is this good enough? On the actual day if the cross goes off the centre you fail...how many time you are allowed to go off the centre?

Mucho Gracias!!!

I am so scared now!!!!

RD..i take it your refering to cockpitweb?? 70 isnt too bad to start with. The version on cockpitweb is a bit jerkier than the pilapt version I reckon, probably making it a little harder than pilapt. A good tip is to run the numbers exercise whilst you do the deviation test at the same time. Great way to practice for the final pilapt section...the dreaded multitasking!

DJ...beat ya...i got 9,10,10 lol!!

Couldn't tell you mate, i've never had pilaptprep. Cockpitweb does the job though, if a little pricey and full of irrelevant exercises!

Tamesy just out of interest mate what kjind of scoes were you getting on the cockpitweb deviation and frames test prior to the lovely PILAPT test.

I am averaging 70-80 on deviation on more difficult and on the frames 17-18 out of 21 frames for the more difficult level.

Nice to see another CTCer from good old manchester!!!!

Hi there. I have my stage 2 for the ATP wings selection. I was wondering if you could provode any tips for me.



During the deviation tests, flying through frames tests how much tolerance do they give you to pass? On the cockpitweb software I have about 70 for the deviation and manage 18 frames for the frame exercise. Have I a long way to go yet?



Also any tips for the mental maths test?



Cheers....much appreciated!
