Your probably right. Yes it will be very fun in the sim, final hurdle to get through though so got to keep in mind that we are still been assessed .

Just had the phonecall saying I've passed Phase 4 today! Unbelievable! Had a really good time in the 737 sim and the instructor was great.

Andy (I know you read PPRuNe ), would love to know how you got on today? Drop me a PM if you like. Found out that I'm on CP63 leaving 2nd July

If anyone wants any info on the selection feel free to PM me. I found these threads incredibly useful and would like to give something back.

Cheers,

CapCon

Congratulations CapCon on passing phase 4, its a nice feeling isnt it!!
Did you ask for a start date around that time or did they just tell you?? im heading out in may on CP61, just wondered if they'd filled all the courses up until CP63. Anyone else on CP61???

Thanks Chris. Don't think its quite sunk in yet, sure it will soon. I don't finish uni till early June so CP63 was the next available for me.

Quick question for anyone who's already out in NZ. 5000 per year living expenses works out at around NZ$1020 per month. How expensive is living out there and is this a reasonable figure?

Cheers,

CapCon

the living expenses loan is enough to be getting on with out here in New Zealand. You aren't going to live like a king but you should be able to afford a few drinks every week ;-)

I got through NZ on about $700/month. It was a bit of a scrape and left me a little bit into my overdraft, but it is do-able if you're really careful what you spend. Food is cheap out there and fuel, when I left anyway, was about 1/3 of the price it is here.

Yeh i guess it does take a while to set in CapCon. Signing for the loan and looking at the repayments will no doubt speed the process up! lol
glad to know the living allowance loan is more than enough. im guessing after the first few months the amount your spending decreases as the work load increases??

Congratulations DJ!!

I guess you were driving yesterday when Aaron called? Think I probably would have crashed if I had found out before getting home

So who else is on CP63 heading out in July? There's a facebook group for 62 and 64 but no 63. Guess I'll have to make it

April 16

Hey guys,

Anyone going to their phase 2 on the 16th April? If so what's going on with the phases? When i booked up my phase 2 i recieved an e-mail saying that phase 2 and 3 were on the same day; what about phase 4 (fingers crossed!) Would that be on a different day?

Thanks

Hmm are you sure you weren't mistaken. Phase 3 is an all day phase and phase 2 is a half a day phase.... unless they plan on going into the night? lol.

Phase 2/3

Yup positive. In my confirmation e-mail it said that from the 15th April the two phases are going to be on the same day; from 8:30 to 5:30. It doesn't mention anything about phase 4 though and i was just wondering if anyone knew anything about this?

That sounds brutal! At least it saves money on trips to Bournemouth I guess?
