I'm pleased to say I got my successful email today! Just got to wait and see if I'm through to the next stage...

Stupotk,

When did you do your day at Dibden manor?

With stage 4 being held on 8/9/10 Feb, we should know how successful we are by the end of January in order to give those lucky few the chance to prepare.

Anyone have any idea the numbers going to phase 4? I would assume maybe 18 candidates (3 groups of 6 for the team tasks) per day, possibly meaning 54 going forward?

Not too sure on numbers, could be 30, could be 40, who knows!

Don't know when the last CTC selection day is for this unfortunately, which I guess would shed some light on it all. I've seen people mention 18th but nothing further?

Hi Andy,
I did mine on Monday and heard back today. In terms of numbers I wouldn't want to take a guess just in case I'm completely wrong!

Also attended the selection day on the 16th, and had a successful email on the 17th I Believe they slim down to 48 for the final stage.

Awaiting further feedback from CTC.

I have a question regarding MPL schemes in general which I hope someone could shed some light on...

It is my understanding that after the completion of 1500 hours the MPL is converted to an unfrozen ATPL.

If this is correct, would you then get all of the licenses below an ATPL such as PPL/CPL/IR etc or would these need to be done separately?

In respect of the MPL, on reaching 1500 hours you can (at your discretion) convert it to an ATPL by completing admin paperwork and of course providing the CAA with relevant payment. Due to the nature of the MPL the CAA would place a multi-crew restriction on it. This essentially means you can't therefore complete any single-pilot commercial ops or take a light aircraft out for a spin without first completing of the relevant training you'd otherwise complete within the PPL/CPL syllabus.

With that said though, graduates of Integrated ATPL programs are also unable to take single engine aircraft out without completing their SEP ratings.

If you fancy some light reading, you can find this in EASA PART-FCL Subpart F (FCL.405.A & FCL.505) in reference to upgrading to an ATPL. But to help you, I summarise the laws here:

When the applicant for of an ATPL(A) has previously held only an MPL, the privileges of the licence shall be restricted to multi-pilot operations but may be extended to single-pilot operations in aeroplanes, provided that the licence holder has completed the training necessary to act as PIC in single-pilot operations exercised solely by reference to instruments and passed the skill test of the IR(A) as a single-pilot prior to issue or any time thereafter.
Hope this helps you!

That's great, thanks! And thanks for the reference - I shall check it out.

Can always rely on you for info, you're probably one of the most helpful on this forum!

Thanks for the comment pal!

No need to go delving through the thousands of pages in the law books.. I've pasted the bit relevant to you in my old post above. (Edited it as you posted).

Does anyone have any idea when we are likely to find out if you have been successful, and being called forward to stage 4 at Crawley?

We were told the dates for phase 4 were 8/9/10 February, starting to feel like there won't be enough time to get things sorted if successful.

I was told they had CTC assessment days up until the end of January, so I have planned for hearing back early February.

Won't be much notice! I have booked it off work just in case...

Of course - I could be wrong, which is why I seem to check my emails every hour!

As far as I was told, the last date for assessment at CTC was the 27th Jan so I would imagine the successful few would be told next week maybe around Wednesday/Thursday, but hopefully sooner!

Wow, thats not much time at all for the chosen few to prepare. I would haver appreciated more time (if successful), i need to give a decent amount of lead time to put in for holidays. It would be quite brutal to get a spot and not be able to attend due to not being able to get away, oh well. thanks for the heads up...

We should have an answer on who has been selected to go forward by the end of this week, good luck to everyone who's waiting.
