I've always wondered that.....I got a buddy of my that failed, and he did not crash the thing, or get any warnings, but others freezing the thing, multiple warnings, and they passed. Funny you should mention that!! ???

I don't belive that 1 second.  It is impossible to get no warning in that thing.

He must be a top gun ace...

On my first "climbing turns" session in capss the cpu was yelling warnings at me for like 4 different parameters at once.......

Its really tough (maybe even impossible) to get through the sim without even incurring 1 warning....

   I call bullshit. I never froze CAPSS, but I passed. I understand in principle that the computer wants to see a learning curve, however it would be outrageous if someone who flew picture perfect every day failed.

Nope, no bullshit on the freezing of the machine, but warnings, I`m pretty sure he got some, but no freezing!

Ah yes, he discovers the profile page!  ;D

I did ACS in Sept 03 (which, as it turns out, I didn't have to do as I was an Aviation College graduate, but was still to Trenton.  Apparently was the first CEOTP pilot to go thru.  Did the sim for fun anyways with no pressure and attempted aerobatics until I was yelled at by the OIC.), and got the offer on Dec 4.  So not terribly long, as they only sit pilot selection boards a few times a year.  But I have heard others being in limbo for much longer.  I'm sure it all depends on timing, number of pilot slots to fill for that year, competition etc.. etc..  From what I understand it is quite the selection process and it's not unusual for people to wait for a while.  Bottom line is that if you get thru ACS, that does NOT guarantee you selection.  Again, (semi out of my lane here, as this pertains to recruiting), from what I understand, those that pass ACS for pilot get put into a big pile of other that have done the same, get merit listed, and then they take the top number of files pertaining to how many slots they need to fill for that time of year.  Those that don't make the cut MAY be told (depends on CFRC's, sometimes you need to press them for an answer), that they didn't make that round of selection, but their file is still active and will be merit listed again the next time around.

   Rats, foiled again!

attempted aerobatics until I was yelled at by the OIC
   That's the single greatest ASC story I've ever heard.

Hippie 

You mentioned that you did not have to do ACS because you were an aviation college graduate, I was under the impression that everybody has to go through the ACS regardless of there educational background, or has there been a change in the rules since you've joined?

Up until recently, those holding a diploma from a recognized Aviation College institution were granted a ACS/PFT bypass.

That policy has recently changed.

Now, all applicants will be required to attend ACS regardless of educational background. However, one may be entitled to a PFT bypass with only a valid Commercial License. (That includes a valid CAT 1 medical too I believe)

As far as where they are granting the bypass (on enrollment or after via application), I do not know.

If you attend the Commercial Aviation Management program at UWO under subsidization, you'll be granted a PFT bypass without sending an application AFAIK. If you obtain your CPL by other means, I imagine you'll have to write memos galore to get the bypass.

Done ACS and CAPSS, Will i not get an offer???

From what I have read on this forum, and after receiving a few PM's from people wondering how I even received an ASC date, it sounds like there are some who have been waiting for a while at a much earlier stage.  Personally, I would be happy to have ASC completed successfully let alone a confirmed date. Congrats to you for completing ASC successfully and good luck.

I did the selection process twice. I failed at first and came back with a PPL. I'm very happy to meet the pilot requirements (just came back from Trenton and Toronto last week). Someone has any idea of how long should i expect to be waiting to get merit listed? I'm applying as a DEO.
