Dont believe ANYTHING pre3mhjt says.... its all tosh

Its sometimes thought that good things come in small packages but in the case of pre3mhjt It's very debatable

However as said, the banter is good, the flying is good (if not always continuous), you'll undoubtably make friends for life and 99.9% of the time..... Life is good

Exclamation Update

I've decided to go for it! What sort of questions do you get asked at screening? I heard somewhere that it was really hard to get accepted 3 or 4 years ago but lately its much easier and now 10% applicants are successful - that still sounds pretty formidable to me!!

Oh and I emailed my cousin regarding the facebook thing, everybody on here was right, the situation was resolved and the only person punished was the nob who did it, after he eventually owned up after everyone was threatened with suspension! I think the CTC only did that to get him to confess, it sounds as if on the whole they are very fair. Also they have 'clipped his wings' so to speak by cancelling a job with easyjet, after he paid 20,000 for the privilege, so it was a very costly little stunt indeed.

BUT, according to my cousin not everyone is like him or indeed likes him, he said he was a real oddball and a bit of a loser and an outcast especially since this happened, and everyone there is always taking the piss out of him behind his back because he is an ali g wannabe as well! lol

I'm not going to post his name as I believe that is unfair as he's not likely to be here to defend himself, and it doesnt really matter anyway, as FM/Citiflyer/thrillseeker says, but for their benefit and amusement as they probably know him his initials are

Gwaihir,

Sounds like you could be the next Facebookgate 'legend' with continual slanderous posts like that. How's about you let what's happened lie and concentrate on your application?

Gwaihir congratulations you have just pust yourself in the same league as fly.NZ

ffs, what right to do you have to post such slanderous comments about someone you do not know? You've never met, spoken to or even been in the same room as this person...all you are going on is what your cousin is saying. Once again, I think you need to get your facts right because what you are spouting (like fly.nz was) is utter

The FB saga is over, end of, R.I.P... Shit stirrers have no place in aviation

I do not know you, and I woud never write anything on a message board about you, however one thing I do know from the message you have posted... I hope I never have to work with you

I couldn't agree more...let the bloody thing rest. You are not in yet by any means mate so I have no idea how this affects you. We really do not need gossips out here. I know those involved and they are all really nice guys - I'm not going to defend a moment of stupidity but don't slander someone you don't know about something you know nothing about.

Gwaihir... just out of curiosity who is your cousin?

Im sure that you will have no problem in disclosing this information, after all, he is telling the truth right?

PM me if you need

Going back to the post from the first page but I wouldn't worry about EZY stopping taking people on. We are not overcrewed by 200 pilots, we are overcrewed by approx 200 flight crew. CC and FD. Will be a downturn in recruitment but we are still taking a lot of new aircraft on and need people to fly them so I think the CTC route should be fairly safe. This is only my opinion though!!

P.S you should have heard some of the things that went on while we were out there!!!!!!

gwarhiri, why did you censor his initials.....i guess it doenst really matter. we all know who this guy is, and its not hard to guess what most people at CTC think of him.........same goes for pretty much everyone in aviation recruitment.

Thanks for the info one post only. Is this confirmed? I guess in the current climate there are a lot of rumours being passed around and I have certainly learnt that much.

With regards to the rest, firstly it would be libel not slander. And its not libel as I plead fair comment, based on what I was told. However I do accept that I went too far. Thrillseeker, you seem to have taken this very personally and I apologise for going too far, as you requested in the PM the initials have been removed. Could Pre3 please refrain from sending me abhorrent PMs please, there's nothing lamer than an internet hardman. I know your just sticking up for your buddy but please stop stalking me.

Anyway, in summary, I apologise to anyone I may have offended or annoyed, but I posted what I was told in good faith, albeit recklessly. For the record I feel sorry for the chap, and as someone said my priority and attention should be centred on my own application. Thrillseeker it saddens me that you wouldn't want to be my colleague in the future, you come across as being heavily committed to aviation and I respect that enormously. I admit I'm a rookie in this game and am just trying to find my way.

I don't want to compromise my cousin's own position by revealing his name, even though I am sure what he says is true. I've learnt my lesson from all this, doing it to a stranger was bad enough, but to a family member would be unforgivable. I'm no Judas

I am not taking it at all personally, I know the individual involved and I know the truth. I do not like to see derogatory comments about this person, especially from somone who does not know him.

For the record, it is not I.

Also, I think you will find that I have never sent you a PM, but thank you for listening to whoever suggested that.

@ gwarhiri : its very amusing that at least 3 people on here have taken any of the points made very seriously

this is because they are all alter-egos of the guy who made the original facebook page

just read the posts and make up your own mind.

i can also list other profiles that belong to this pr!ck.....in some cases he actually has had conversations with himself on this site.

its a real shame that instead of being a schizophrenic freak, the guy hasnt had the bollocks to just come on here and say that he has done a stupid thing and that he has taken responsbility for it.......eventually.

You really are doing yourself and CTC no favours

If you think that I am an alter-ego, you are gravely mistaken. Check any of my previous posts against any of the other people that have posted here and you will see that.

If you want PM me, we can exchange numbers and have a chat over the phone.

Again, what ' right do you have to be slagging off another CTC cadet that you dont even know. Im sure that WN would be very interested in what you are saying about another cadet.

I challenge you to call me, I'd love to know who you are. I have nothing to hide.

Firstly its Gwaihir, and yes I did find it a little strange. People talking to themselves on the internet is very sad, but i'm staying out of this, I don't want to get my head bitten off again

fanofcheapthrills : when did i say that you were the guy?

you seem to be getting very defensive here?

i wonder why?

you are just some internet hardman. so dont think that you scare me.

and as for me giving you my phone number, dont make me laugh. i dont wanna hear you stuttering and mispronouncing words on the phone as you back track.............

its a real shame that the guy who did this carries on the charade that all the posters on here are his "friends"..........its pretty weird that the guy hasnt had the bollocks to stand up and be honest......exact same thing goes for when he did the facebook page ; refusing to own up until others had to remind him of what they could lose if he didnt grow some balls.

i wonder how many of his other personas will come out of the woodwork to deny that he has multiple personalities ie: he is a mental-case

You do make me laugh. Personally I hope someday we do meet face to face, I am no internet hardman and I have nothing to hide.

I am not going to reply any further to this thread, I have nothing else to say to someone that spouts shit. I wish you well with your career I'm sure with your attitude you'll go far.
