Phase 2/3

I passed my phase2 and had phase 3 on the same day. However, CTC decided not to take my application further. But they have asked me to re-apply again stating that I was very close to their standards. They have asked me to re-apply in 6 months time... is it usual?? do I have to go through the whole process again or would it just be the interview?? has anyone been able to get it done earlier than 6 months waiting time?? 6 months is a lonnnnnnnnnnnnng time.

Well just to make you feel a bit better I applied to CTC originally 2 years ago I also passed Stages 1 and 2, had the interview and was unsuccessful they told me I was close to their standards and to reapply in 2 Years time. I can tell you it was worth waiting cos I reapplied and had my phase 3 and 4 last month and I leave for NZ on CP66 in October.

There is a rapidly deepening pool of CTC cadets completing training.

Some will be tempted to escape their debts by means of personal bankruptcy. This will happen as soon as cadets cannot be placed with airlines that will pay a living wage post monthly loan repayments.

Once a few people go bankrupt (there isn't a judge in the insolvency court who would not allow it) and walk away from their HSBC loan then the whole question of funding will become a very red hot potato for HSBC.

These schemes were not designed to withstand a credit crunch and a massive airline recession. Be aware of the liabilities and scenarios attached to the promise of an airline career as marketed in the brochure.

There are options open to cadets in the holding pool, as Dave said they will have turned down offers and be awaiting an airline they would prefer such as EZY.

Agreed Chelcse, getting into flying always requires a leap of faith (especially financially!). There will be good times and bad times to make this jump but as it stands we will not be looking for employment for another 16 months(ish) so hopefully the situation will not be worse.

Phase 2/3

Thanks to all who replied. Does anyone know if you fail at phase 3 and called again, do you get to resit phase 2 again or will it just be an interview?

heys guys....feel abit stupid about this..applying to the cadet programme soon....just wondering who you guys used as your 2 referees in the application process....it says "a person you have known for more than 5 years, not relatives of close friends".

So far i only have my gcse/a-level teacher whom i have known more than 5 years....otherwise i can only think of close friends who i have known more than 5 years....since i have been at university for 3 years...

much appreciated

Don't worry about this, I don't have a suitable reference in terms of the 5 year requirement and have been told this is fine! If you pass stage 4 you are told that references are still accepted if you haven't known them for 5 years (the example given by CTC is that those fresh out of uni will only have known their tutors for 3 years!).

Make sure it's not family and close friends though (although I sure you've noticed this stated on the online application).


edit: you started uni at 16??

So do they not contact your referees until you have passed stage 4? Or will they use the references to support the selection process?

Well you may be please to know being in Uni in no way detracts from your application. CP67 due to start in November has about 2/3 people from Leeds uni who were in the exact same position as you, having gone to the CTC assessment with impending exams!

References are contacted after you have passed stage 4 of selection

DJ, you appear to know more than the average poster but somewhat less than WWW. Belongins shows the right attitude and your age difference (as well as your proud boast of a status) confirms it. We know you're happy to be starting the course but two years down the line is where you need to look... The guys through the course you speak of might just get 500hrs on type before things really start to kick off in the winter, but they would have started in 2006, the good old days. They might have no option but to hold for easy anyway (do you want to be shipped out to the pacific on completing?) Take senior advice and stay out of denial. You will hear more rumours about the pool/jobs etc than you will ever forget - advice from cadets is notoriously blinkered/rose-tinted by that 319 around the corner. You'll see what I mean when you get there.
