I received a reply within a few days, they will email you letting you know whether you can progress to stage 2/3. you will then be able to view your online application to book a slot.

2)are tests/ interviews granted for everyone who submitted their application.
No

3)what maths/ physics do i have brush up before stage 2/3 ?
Put aside a week to digest this thread in its entirety! It contains a massive amount of info, there's nothing worth adding that's not already been discussed.

Forgot to mention... Good luck!

CP65?!

Delighted to say I passed P4 yesterday and I'm booked into CP65 (medical pending). Anybody else on the same CP? I've not heard much mention of it on this thread.

Many congratulations Woskam, I have mine booked on the 22nd and am hoping to join you on CP64/5!

Set yourself up on facebook and do search on groups for "CTC CP65". Has a few on there already.

Cheers guys, it hasn't quite sunk in yet, I imagine it takes some time!

I joined the facebook group for CP65 but its looking quite bare - there's a few CP64 guys who have joined it to have a nosy around around!

Kerosine - I asked about going on CP64 but I was told it was full, so looks like you'll be a '65-er!

This may be of interest to some of you lot waiting to go to NZ - although it is a TVNZ news item from Jan 08 on the NZ CTC students.
it Gives you a very quick overview-look at the Ham Crew Training centre.

Hamilton pilot training taking off
Jan 7, 2008 1:31 PM
A Hamilton flying school is set to triple its recruits to help fill a world-wide shortage of pilots.
CTC Aviation Training School has already got a good track record for training British cadets and now it plans to increase its New Zealand trainee numbers up from 30 to 100 within the next year.
The Hamilton training ground is a big hit with UK cadets who can get their training more cheaply than back home. In just eight months Englishman Kevin Wainscott is destined to be scooped up by a major European airline - just like his 130 predecessors.
" CTC itself is renowned for being one of the best training facilities in the world so it's fantastic for us to come over here," says Wainscott.
Trainees spend three to four hours a week up in the air and within just 18 months they can be in the right hand seat of a 737.
The school now plans to use its solid international reputation to train more New Zealanders to help fill the pilot shortage.
Chief operating officer Ian Calvert believes Air New Zealand is in exactly the same boat as other airlines around the world.
"Because of the retirement of ex-military pilots from the Vietnam era onwards and the expanse of airlines around the world, particularly the low cost airlines," Calvert says.
CTC wants to get major players like Air NZ on board so kiwi graduates have top jobs to move into.
The school hopes the airlines will see the benefits of working together with the training facility.
And it's not just airlines that will benefit, the work in keeping the facility in Hamilton already injects millions into the local economy - a trend that will only increase as the school takes off.

Good luck getting in clearways first time! They're on complete overload atm, a new block is nearly finished with enough for 2-3 more CPs I believe but even still, it's a push! You will probs end up in temp accom for the first month or so. I'm leaving tommorrow (CP61) and we're going to dey street for 4 weeks then transferring to Clearways when it's freed up a bit. Good luck guys, and see you out there!

Exhibitz - I've heard from friends out there at the minute that what you say is very much the case. They were in Peachgrove for about a month before moving to Clearways. Must admit, I'm very jealous of the fact you're going out there tomorrow. I'm on CP65 and the thought of another four months here is killing me. Think of me sitting at my desk revising for uni exams while you're getting hammered in a bar at Heathrow tomorrow
