CTC will naturally prefer their candidates over others - simply business - but it's all supply and demand - if they had enough people to supply then airlines wouldn't be seeing a shortage leading to a recruitment drive ..... They would quietly recruit internally as they have always done so......

I feel this is changing and hence - if they see less people doing the 16 hr Courses - they will ask you to add it on provided you fit the profile.

Eitherway you have to wait and see

a painful wait but hope is a great thing......


My turmoil continues with this wait....��

HW, just a slight correction to what you said, you were sent for a JOC before sim check, because history had proven that very low houred pilots failed the sim check had they not completed a JOC beforehand.

Hi All,

Just a quick note to add to the already extensive thread. I applied for Flybe in Sept 2014 via the old portal and finally got an interview in late Jan. Pretty relaxed setup with 1 pilot and one HR member. Two people being interviewed at a time. It was predominately competence based questions and a few tech. Unfortuneately I didn't nail them and on my feedback (about 20 mins later) I was told I just fell short of the cutoff score to progress to the next stage, i.e. the sim check.

If I had passed that phase, the sim check was to be done that same afternoon. I don't have a JOC (MCC only) and they were aware of that, so I would suggest JOC is not the be all and end all at that stage but most likely helpful. The other person interviewing at the same time as me passed and went onto the sim check and she didn't have a JOC either.

This may change under the CTC regime, but that is a summary of my experience. I was told to re-apply in 12 months.

Hope that helps some out there.

Hi All,

Just received couple of days ago from Flybe.

Dear "---"
Pilot simulator assessment


Further to your recent successful interview, you are invited to attend a simulator assessment at the Flybe Training Academy, Exeter (directions attached) on Thursday 14th April 2016

Please report to "---" at 17:00 for your assessment. Please meet your assessor in the Reception area.

Please confirm that you will be attending by email to "---" and "---".

Good luck with the assessment.

Yours sincerely

"---"
Flybe Flight Crew Recruitment

Very strange wording from them. I never been to any interview with Flybe before.
Does anyone got the same one?

In response to record rates of attrition Flybe have employed a 'Minority Report' based method to meet recruitment needs. There are now 3 psychics in Exeter sending people out assessment invitations before they even knew they would apply.

sounds like an admin error - call them and ask.

Still a little embarrassing to say the least

At least we can see from Flybw's post that Interviews and assessments are taking place.
Though no invite to Flybe's CTC selection here. Obviously my 2000hrs ME TP time not what they are looking for.
I'm sure CTC will line them up with someone more suitable.......

I'd rather not give the exact date but it is in April. Once you are successful at stage 1 you are invited to book yourself onto an assessment day and there were a few to choose from, the furthest ahead I could choose was in June.

I applied on the day the new process was opened.

by stage 1 gnome means CTC approving your application and getting called for the assessment day, as thats not a given.

hope that helps

Hi there,
Does anyone has any idea what are those ”computer based tests” with CTC like, and if so, will you please be so kind to share your knowledge with us. PM maybe? It will be highly appreciated.
Thanks

@Sascha410 - check SkyTest or PilotAptitudeTest.com.

This may be of use to you: https://pilotaptitudetest.com/knowledgebase/flybe/

I have been invited to this through CTC but I'm unable to book a space either - anyone else had any issues booking?

Thank you LMC, I appreciate it!

Reg. booking, just guessing but probable due to limited space, first come first serve...

Evening all, just wondering has anyone has any change in their application portal. I logged in just a few hours ago and found that my application required further information after having previously submitted everything they needed before. New info they required was Current TR and on which aircraft. I also noticed that my additional question section had now disappeared.... If anyone can shed any light on this it would be greatly appreciated!

Flybe CTC recruitment

I've had the following email from CTC this afternoon which probably explains it:

Make of that what you will! Probably no more than a request for more detailed information, but possibly a sign CTC are re-calibrating the BE recruitment criteria, not sure.
