I think the Assessment days commenced yesterday and run until Friday week. I would imagine approx 25/30 per day. Unfortunately for those not called, I wouldnít be holding my breath.

Assessments started yesterday and are running until the 20th. I only received a phone yesterday after patiently waiting. I was offered the 19th and 20th

Just out of interest, is there anyone yet to receive either a NO THANKS email, or a telephone call inviting them to be assessed?

Attended the group assessment last week. I guess tomorrow is the last assessment day since they said they had ~240 in total for the group assessments, and there are 24 people invited each day. After that, they told us they would be in contact in about 4 weeks if successful, so more waiting for now...

They didn't mention how many cadets they would be taking this year, but they did say in the morning that they had a space for "everybody in the room", which I'm assuming means at least 24 places, though that seems like a lot so maybe they are planning to have more than 1 class this year.

Good luck too all those still waiting, and keep the faith if you didn't make it this year. This was my 4th time applying, and they mentioned that they need something like 300 pilots over the next 5 years, so take what you've learned from the process this year and you will have a head start next year!

Iíve not received a call or a no thanks email as of yet. Iíve written it off at this stage now though, will just knuckle down for the next opportunity

Pretty sure Iím not alone in being in the Ďno answerí group.

Sorry to hear that. I wouldnít be holding my breath. Quite poor people management from EI point of view. You would think that after taking the time to complete all the online assessments etc, they would at least inform you of where you are rather than leave you in no mans land!!

Friday the 20th is the last day of assessments as far as I'm aware. They go on for 10 days (09 Sep - 20 Sep)

Anybody know how many they take forward to the Psychiatrist/Psychologist Interview?

Yes, sorry. You're absolutely right. 10 days off assessments, NOT including the weekend days (doh!), so today is the last day. Figures should be correct though.

I reckon it's ~240 invited to the group stage. Of those, if roughly half make it to the panel interview in the afternoon (not necessarily true as they will interview everyone who gets enough points in the group exercise, so could very well be much more or less), then that would be around 120 people, from which they would pick their cadet class of 12 or 24 or whatever it is.

Definitely just guessing here, but I would assume for costs reasons they would only send their first choice candidates for the cadet class to the psych/medical stage (Initial Class 1 medical is ~Ä450 alone), and only if someone fails would they select the next person from the list for testing. I guess it will be pretty quite here for another 4 weeks or so now!

Done and dusted

so thatís it everyone for another year... how did everybody find it? Did many people get interviews from your assessment day?

Personally, I was in on 20th, and I would estimate approx 15 people got interview. Some strong candidates

good luck to all
