CAPSS
« on: February 15, 2012, 12:06:21 »
Hi everybody,

I hope that you will understand me well because English is my second language.

6 years ago, I postulated for pilot in ROTP. Everything went well except for the CAPSS. I had a lot of difficulties and I failed. Since than, I have finished my bachelor degree in mechanical engineering and I want to postulate again for pilot but in DEO. Do I need a private pilot licence to pass again the CAPSS? You seem say (in 2007-2008 posts) that I need one but I spoke to a recruiter and he said no.

I'm a little bit confused. Can you provide me an answer?

Thanks a lot and congratulation for this website, it gives the taste to serve for our country!

Even if I heard that they delete your application folder after 3 years?

It is not because you "heard" something that it makes it so.

For those who are in the same situation as me, I asked someone of my family at the National Defense Headquarters, and he confirmed me that : '' a person who have failed CAPSS need to obtain flight skills before being eligible for re-testing''. So in my case, I need a PPL.
