Hello everyone, just wondering if any1 had been called for sim assessment from GECAT in the past few months; I've been sending them CV's for their type rating program to this email [email protected] since january on a monthly basis but got no response whatsoever ...

thanx, alex.

I spoke to GECAT a month back, and they mentioned that they had currently suspended their type rating scheme. I tried calling today, but the lady was not in the office, does anyone have any new info of when the scheme will become active again?

Well I had been waiting a while too for an answer and yesterday they finally emailed me back.... apparently there's only a few places left on a July\August course on the A320...

Has anyone recently done the SSTR with OAA (GECAT)? If so, did you get jobs soon after?

I am currently an instructor with around 2500 hours. My students are getting interviews who have 300 hours!! so not sure where i am going wrong!

looking into SSTR on A320 any information will be grateful

Hi Greg, did an SSTR around 2 years ago. OAA/SAS (formerly GECAT) are just not interested in putting forward SSTR students for any role. Not even the chance of a fair assessment. Since the buyout I've not heard of a single non Integrated trained students being put forward for an assessment.

I would strongly advise you to choose a TRTO that has established links with airlines and DOES NOT discriminate against pilots who have not come through the Oxford Integrated machine.

Sorry but you're not gonna want to hear this, be patient and apply apply apply, because even the TRTO's that run schemes for the airlines and proclaim to be linked, also leave you high and dry. Do your type rating through the airline that employs you otherwise be prepared for disappointment....

Out of interest I contacted CTC regarding Flexi crew and SSTR as I heard they were placing people with EZY a few weeks ago.

They told me that if I paid for a type rating, non of their partner airlines would take me on, based on no experienced etc. It did make me think as I know from someone in EZY that they are getting short and people are leaving.

I can only think they were not interested and quite frankly wanted to place their low houred cadets as they also have no experience.

I was only interested as I finished training a few years ago and been flying single pilot commercially without any debts and want to join a multi crew operator etc.
