Can't actually believe that I am writing this.....but I received the good news!

For all of you that didn't get the result that you were, please take a minute to read what I have to say.

I have been pursuing my dream for almost 8 years now, ever since these types of schemes made a reappearance post 9/11 and have received the bad news at almost every stage of the application process. That said, I viewed each unsuccessful attempt as a chance to review and improve for the next attempt. I'm not saying its been easy, in fact its be pretty disheartening at times and I have questioned my resolve to keep trying on a number of occasions; thinking what else can I actually do.

The best advice that I can give is to keep trying, do not give up, review what you did last time and think about how you can improve. One of the best things I did was to talk to as many people as I could, get them to proof read my applications, go through interview questions I thought would come up and discuss the examples that I had for each.

Finally, do not give up on your dream. If you want it enough, willing to put the hard work in, and lady luck is on your side then you will be rewarded.

Finally, massive congrats to all the others that have received the good news. If anyone was there on my final day, 10th, drop me a message as would be great to see who else got in. I could not have picked between us all tbh.

Hi AAA,

Congratulations! I too was successful this time round and cannot support enough what you've said. For those that have been unsuccessful try not to be too disheartened - it has taken me years of trying time after time to get here so please take the advice above as it will help you get where you want to be!

If there is anyone else who has been successful please feel free to PM me and you can be put in contact with some other successful candidates.

Well done! I was there also on the last day would be very interesting to talk with you about your journey which got you to your success. And also to see how your training progresses in general.

how do you private message on here?! AHH!

Does anyone know what the selection process is for direct entry pilots to Virgin Atlantic? What does the interview itself involve?? My husband has an interview later this month. Any help with past questions would be appreciated - thanks

Thanks in advance

I don't work for Virgin, but i can tell you the last bunch on the scheme ended up at EasyJet for 2 years prior to eventually going to Virgin. So I would have thought unlikely.
