Wow, they let you take out an unsecured loan of 75k!
Yes, CTC are also putting down a guarantee of 30k if you are removed from the course to cover any fees. HSBC are also aware of how CTC works, and understand it's the airlines who will be paying the money back + interest so it's safer for them. Especially with CTC's high employment rate.

By the way if all the talk of getting removed is worrying you, just to eas your mind, if you put the work in you will pass. CTC have a VERY low drop/failure rate.

I think 2% is correct, rings a bell anyway.

Phase 4

Hi Everyone,

Well I wish I could say the same as Lee...but unfortunately I failed Phase 4 although they have asked me to come back in September for a second try.
It is a big knock really and a terrible feeling..yet I have another chance!!!

6 months is a long way....and to be honest I am not 100% sure what went wrong. I was wondering if anyone had the same experience and finally passed on the 2nd time...please feel free to email me ([email protected]).
Actually I would love to hear from those who have failed the 1st time what was the feedback from CTC and how you have improved from the 1st time to the 2nd time...

Thanks..and all the best for all of you.

L.

PS: Kelly - If I pass the second time then I will try to go asap ie october.

So yourself preduk was in the james watt building for the 4pm presentation,was alright wasnt it? They also said that failure rate in this part of the industry is an average of 5% so 1.2% failure rate on this flying school is still waaaaaaaaay below the average

Search engines and PPRuNe. If it ain't in either of those, there ain't too much more to know!

Phase 4

Hi Everybody,

I had my phase 4 yesterday...unfortunately I didn't pass this time. However I have been asked to come back in September to try again...so at least I have another chance...

It 's a terrible feeling to feel that close and yet to fail...argh!!! It's killing me and the dream of flying soon seems miles away .
I was wondering if anyone had the same experience and fail stage 4 the first time but passed the second time. Please send me an email....It would be nice to share what went wrong and what was the feedback from CTC. I must have done something wrong...and yet I am not sure what went wrong...personal attitude and /or flying skills???

Does anyone know whatis the approx percentage of getting through the second time? did the flight sim assessment on the second time was harder?. 6 months is going to kill me (it has already started...) but I would like to use this time in the good way so I can improve my performances...

Thanks and congratulations to all of you who have passed the selection.
I still believe that every efforts you put into CTC is worth it...but right now I feel like a proper donkey for not being able to pass S4

Hope to read you soon

Lydia

It is a fully intergrated course, you are required to start from scratch but your PPL hours will count towards some of it.

It may well be worth keeping your PPL current. Yes you still have to go through everything on the foundation course but you will get through the course quicker, due to needing fewer flights, and also depending on how many flights you have your foundation reduced by you'll get that money back. One of the guys on my CP has just passed to the wings phase and is now due a refund on about 20 hours, hopefully he's paying for the drinks next week!
