ROTP PLT Stats
« on: April 22, 2008, 19:28:39 »
Hi all, I was looking at some of the plt stats for ROTP and CEOTP.  From this year (08/09) it looks like the number of slots for ROTP PLT is 51 and the number of applicants is 548 with no offers on the table yet (for those waiting).  Wow, everyone wants to be plt.  8)

Where'd you hear 51 2fly? IIRC, the intake last year was in the 70's, it seems odd it would go down seeing as the CF lowered vision standards and now accepts laser eye surgery.

  True as I guess they had more applicants than spots before the lowering of the standards, sorry, wasn't thinking.

So a 1 in 10 change ..... yikes.
 
  That would be if it were a lottery. It is not. Do everything you can to help your application and good luck.

Hi all,

  I'm an ROTP applicant and recieved a conditional offer for Air Operations.  My number 1 choice is pilot and have been told that I am awaiting an AirCrew Selection slot.  Is anyone else in the same boat?

Welcome to the site, you are one of MANY that are ROTP applicants awaiting ASC (AirCrews Selection Course).  There are a couple of ROTP's on here (right Cory  ^-^) that are going on the ASC with some of us Internal CEOTP members on Saturday.

Thanks for the reply... I was curious to whether anybody knows what the maximum allowable height of pilots is?  I'm about 6'4" with quite long legs so I've been under the impression for quite a long time that I am too tall.  Have the new anthropometric procedures and standards at AirCrew testing changed the limits at all?

Cheers,

Jeff

 ;)

Just spent 600$ on some dual practice lol. Mostly instrument work. so expensive :(

I was wondering, are those ~550 applicants only those making it to ASC, or the total number who initially applied for pilot? I suppose once ASC weeds a bunch of us out, the odds will be better for those who can pass. :)

  You'll find out soon enough, and there's nothing you can do to change it. From what I've heard 6'4 is not out of the ballpark at all. Unless you have garagantuan thighs or something you should be ok for all cockpits.

Hi Corey,

Those are just the applicants.  The top pics get sent for ASC and the selection is from those that pass. :)

Incorrect.

ASC is NOT a pre-requisite for getting an offer for 32U. Backwards you say? I know.

For CEOTP applicants ( serving CF members) , no offers will be made unless ASC has been succesfully completed.

My bad, I was referring to ROTP...should have specified.

Is CEOTP not a civy entry plan? I was under the impression that the only means available to serving CF members are Reassignment or an OT (for officers)?

I know there are different options for NCMs, just not sure on the specifics...

a limited number of CEOTP spots in several oficer MOSIDs ( pilot being one of them) openned up only for serving NCMs.

In-service comissioning for NCMs is hardly anything new. CFR, UTPNCM, SCP, SRCP, etc...
