woskam, try the Innkeepers Lodge (www.innkeeperslodge.co.uk) if you book enough in advance its 30 with breakfast included. Also its by the hospital which is outside the centre of Bournemouth and right next to the a338 so its very close to the airport.

Cheers Shakuri, I'll look into that. 30 is certainly a lot less than I was expecting to have to pay.

As I was saying on the other CTC thread..

If you want the closest place to stay for CTC bournemouth, Avon Causeway is just 3 mins away and when my gran stayed there last august it was only 14 b&b for a small single room.

Handy for anyone to know if your on a tight budget, or just wanna spend the savings on beer (beer there is fab!)

Hi

Hi,

I don't know if you will remember but I was the only girl on Stage 2...
Congratulations on going on Stage 3. I hope everything will go well for you (and all the others). I passed the math test but I am retaking the aptitude tests next week...I got an error message on the concentration tests. They told me I would have passed otherwise...
Wooh...I feel the stress coming back... but I really got to give my best!

All the best.

Lydia

Ps: do you know how many passed the stage 2?

Avon Causeway

Just a note for those looking to stay at Avon Causeway for any future Stage 2 assessment, I booked a room last night and it was 55 per night for a single room, and 65 per night for a double room. I assume the quoted price of 14 only applies if you book early enough...although my Stage 2 is on the 18th March which is still a month away so I don't know!

Hi all,

Im down for Phase 2 on the 11th MAR.

Just wondering if anyone has done the RAF aptitude tests and the CTC ones. If so, how do they compare?

Many thanks

Ghostie

Hi Ghostie,

I reckon the RAF tests are considerably tougher than the CTC ones (I've done both) I think the RAF went into a lot more detail.

Hi everyone,

Was just wondering if any of you went to the FLYER exhibitions and spoke to CTC? I was thinking of flying over on April 19th from Dublin just to go and talk to them! Is there much point or do they just tell you basically what's on their website?

Cheers, EI350

I went to the flyer show in november mainly to go and speak to the guys on the CTC stand. Its worth the trip as they have current graduates (post NZ) on the stand. I got to their stand early in the day and I managed to have a 20min chat with one of the graduates who answered all of my numerous questions.
Its worth going anyway beacuse all the big training schools are there and there are seminars with people from the industry. All in all a very informative day.

It didn't help me pass stage 3 though!

Thanks alot Bungles for the advice. I'm arriving into LHR early so hopefully I'll get to have a good chat with them! Really sorry to hear that you didn't make it.

Best of luck,
