I unfortunately don't have a phase 4! To be reconsidered in 6 months so it's not all bad I guess. Best of luck with the sim - sounds like a lot of fun to be had!

Alex,

I dunno know mate! I was thinking of doing the whole trip in one day (involves leaving Cardiff at 7.30am ) although I'm now thinking of staying at Dibden and getting a taxi over to Nursling in the morning. What time are you booked in for? I've got to be there for 11am.

Yeah James got through, haven't heard from anyone else though. I'm led to believe you can't really do a lot of prep. Only thing I have done is find a picture of a 737 flight deck in an attempt to learn where a few things are so I don't look like a complete idiot

Hi, CTC doesn't actually stand for anything. I think it used to stand for Crew Training Center but as far as I am aware, it doesn't actually stand for anything. When I did my interview I spent ages trying to find out the meaning of it in case they asked. You won't be asked though.

For the sim, you can't do any prep at all really, you will be shown everything you need to know and then the sim session will be based on how much experience you have. When I did mine I had 20 hours experience and so the guy who did my sim took control of the thrust levers and I literally just had the control column and was asked some mathematical questions.

Good luck to you all

CTC used to stand for Chief Training Captains back in the day when that was the only service offered to airlines. Nowadays it stands for nothing but the CTC building in Bournemouth is called "Crew Training Center".

Hythe is also the branch I will be going to that day. Lynda told me that there were no added conditions to the loan the other day.

GAR,

Go for something else; I got told the same as you -come back in a few months - and two days later I was offered a place at FTE with BA and they're paying for a load of my training - I found CTC's selection a bit self-styled and weird and it wasn't at all like the airline selection. I was fed a load of bull about expanding my horizons (yeah, that and giving them another 180 in six months time for a retry - no thanks). Go in for all the mentored schemes you can because whatever CTC says to you in their feedback, it's the airlines who know what they want and if you can get them behind you then you're laughing.

Good luck

Hi all, a quick question to everyone who has gone through the selection and got on a course: do you get given a date to start, or can you choose for example to start a couple of month after being chosen?

I want to apply for CTC wings cadet, but would not want to start in a month or two, rather I would want to start in about 6-8 months (save really hard for that period). I would ideally apply now, and go through selection to find out if I can even get on a course, but I am concerned that if i do get offered a place, it would be too soon, and i could not say "actually, could I start on the january course?".

Any feedback on how this little part works would be great. i dont really want to wait 6 months to apply, then find I cant get on the course, equally, I would prefer to start the course in about 6-8 months so that I can save a bit of cash between now and then. (that would otherwise be spent on hour building towards CPL)

Thanks all.

Ive heard that all courses are full for the next few months anyways so you wont be starting right away so will more than likely be able to defer a few months.

Strange that, seeing as they can't find jobs for cadets at the moment.

At a CTC seminar we had at uni they told us you can defer your entry.

Hi Guys Congratulations to all those who have passed phase assessments

I have 2 and hopefully 3 on the 29th

although.....I'm confused....and it doesn't take much i'll admit but, today I recieved an email from CTC entitled Phase 2 results...... I nearly passed out ..........thoughts of you idiot you've booked the wrong date and missed your assessment ran through my tiny little mind......Nervously I opened the e- mail to find an attachment entitled PH3 Questions???

Any one have any words of wisdom on this before I phone CTC and make a complete idiot of myself???

They would be appreciated

What are you confused about?

Answer the questions attached in the email and send them back before Phase 3.

I originally applied to start in Jan 2009, and the asked me to apply in 6 months time and put my application on hold. I didn't want to wait so I managed to re-arrange my finances and job to allow me to start in the next few months (assuming I get in!). They then re-activated my account and asked me to book Stage 2 and 3.

How long did they take to get back to you?
