To qualify for the CTC Wings ATP route and take advantage of the placement opportunities that are only available to CTC Wings pilots, please ensure you meet the following criteria:
The selection process for aspiring CTC Wings ATP pilots is challenging and competitive, designed to test your mettle through each of the four phases - application, testing, interview and CTC's Airline Qualification Course.
By the end of the process, both you and CTC will have a clear, all-round picture of your abilities and your potential as a pilot.
Fill in the online application form. Your application will be carefully screened to ensure your suitability for the next stage.
All suitable applicants are invited to take part in an assessment day. During the morning we will test your numerical skills, discover your natural ability using the world's leading pilot aptitude testing system and you will take part in some group activities for us to evaluate your interpersonal skills.
We'll also endeavour to answer any remaining questions you have about CTC Wings during a presentation delivered by one of the CTC team.
Please note: You will be required to produce original evidence of your ATPL exam results at this phase of selection. We will take photocopies of this paperwork to be retained on your training file if you are successful through selection.
Those who are successful at Step 2 will be asked to stay on for the afternoon and complete an interview conducted by members of our CTC Wings selection team. (On occasions, this interview might need to take place at a later date which we will arrange at a time that is mutually agreeable).
We will normally advise you of the result of your interview within 24 hours and those successful will be invited to book themselves on to an 'Airline Qualification Course' which forms the fourth and final phase of your assessment.
As a CTC Wings ATP applicant, the final stage of selection is our 'Airline Qualification Course' (AQC) which you are required to complete before you can join the programme. This bespoke course which is unique to CTC affords you valuable training in either the B737 or Airbus A320 simulator. The course combines the MCC (Multi Crew Cooperation certificate), an airline Initial CRM (Crew Resource Management) syllabus and and advanced handling skills programme. Subject to successful performance to CTC Wings standard during the AQC, you will be placed in our unique CTC Wings ATP database awaiting any type-rating and airline placement opportunities with one of our partner airlines.
Please note: The CTC Wings ATP database augments the CTC Wings Cadet hold pool. Pilots on the CTC Wings ATP database will be called up for type ratings when we do not have enough cadets ready and available for type rating.
It should also be noted that some airlines may require a contribution towards type rating costs. Details of the terms on offer will be made available for you to review at the point of offer as these can vary from time to time and airline to airline.
Naturally our partner airlines will also want to get to know you, so in addition to these four steps, you might be invited to an additional interview or to an extra selection session during your training with us.
