From what I've learned on here, they no longer let anybody skip the ACS.

  True

If you have your CPL, I don't think you have to do PFT.
   
 
   False. The only way to a PFT bypass these days is the Commercial Aviation Management Program at UWO, and only for ROTP that I'm sure of. I'm not sure what would happen if someone came out of this program and joined as a DEO.

There are some OJT guys I work with going directly to MJ (PFT bypass) based on aviation college programs (Confed/Chicoutimi/Sault etc.).  They're definitely not ROTP.

   Hm. It must be quite recent. As Hippie said, it happened to him in 2003, so not that long ago. I don't think college programs get you the bypass anymore. Did these guys get a degree, then their aviation college program (or vice-versa) then join DEO?

Has that policy changed as well??  Again, when I went thru, anybody that had gone to a DND approved aviation college program (of which there are / were 12 I believe), you would skip PFT and ACS (not the medical part obviously).  I was one of them, and I certainly didn't go to UWO.  From my basic trg platoon, about 10 out of 20 or so pilots skipped PFT all together, mostof which were CEOTP (one went to UWO).   Benny88, maybe since you're working at a CFRC, you're more privy to this kind of info.  Are you absolutely sure about your information?  I would hate to think that prospective applicants here are being lead astray by bad info.

Just a reminder to all, don't take everything you read on these forums as gospel.  There's lots of good info on here, but naturally not everything will be correct.

Cheers,
Hippie

   No, I don't work at a CFRC, sarcasm? To be honest, I was quite sure about the PFT thing, but C1Dirty said otherwise and I have no document and can't even remember who told me, so I will defer to him and say it IS possible to bypass with a college program.
  To the best of my knowledge, NOONE bypasses ACS though.


Check out this post my Maniac in an ASC thread:
http://forums.army.ca/forums/index.php/topic,63367.msg678996.html#msg678996

    I was wrong about PFT looks like, but right about ASC. A look at Maniac's profile shows he DOES work in a CFRC, so I would call that a fairly firm answer.
    Sorry for the confusion and my error. Hippie is right, remember not to take anything as gospel on these forums.
    Anyways, we're off topic, and this is all covered in that forum I quoted. Back to Science vs. Religion, or whatever... ;D

Ha!  I appears I miss-read your profile.  How the hell did I mix up ASU and CFRC.  Probably too much St. Patricks Day holy water cloudin the brain still.   >:D

  Haha no worries. As penance I sentence you to buying me a holy water in a few decades when I finally get to a squadron.
