Hey all,

I'm happy to find this forum with all like minded people. This is definitely a stressful time for us all without knowing what the outcome entails. I'm just curious if anyone else is placed in the candidate pool and if so have you received a phone call for a spot on the upcoming course in Oct?

Thanks!

Hello everyone!

I have been offered the IFR course for Edmonton starting in October, so exciting! Anyone else in for YEG October? Would be cool to get to know some of you and maybe have some study sessions :) I feel like the best classes I have taken have been the ones where all the students had a great dynamic and chemistry :)

Did they happen to say how many people they were calling? Left to call?

Hi KP! How are you finding the pre-course material? Do you know how big the class is?

Outflying that is a bummer :(

Hey, to all of you who passed the in person assessment. I was wondering if you remember how many questions you answered in the listening test. I am sure I must have been really close and am wondering what to aim for next year. Thanks in advance, good luck to everyone who is still waiting on next stages and congratulations to all that are in :)

Thanks and the same to you YEGYYCATC! Perhaps we will be fortunate enough to get an offer in the spring. Best of luck to everyone in the candidate pool.

nothing posted on takecharge, probably still in planning....someone correct me if I am wrong, but NavCanada is likely in their year end right now so assessing what their needs will be....

They are usually really good about posting upcoming assessments well in advance of invites to it....

I myself and awaiting the next round of IFR/VFR offers early next year (likely) for the spring intake... it is my last eligible round of offers and I am not optimistic in the least, but you never know.

Hey man,

I haven't heard a response back yet so I too feel your pain. I've been in the candidate pool since May '17. Thought I might get a call for the Oct course, but never came. A buddy of mine works IFR at YEG and says there is a course this upcoming spring so there's always hope for that one.

Cheers!
