ya i was talking bout the 70 gals on monday undergo water-confi test.as i finished,the lady asked my name and put ''QUERY'' beside my name n most of the name has the same word as mine...so i just walked off.suddenly there's a man asking the lady how many will go tru the last interview and the lady said-''70 minus 3= 67...so i guess there's about 67 or 66 finalists..hehe
oh ya...thanks babymoon21 for your wish :wink: !!!!!!!


Dear shrapnel,
you got me worried there a little. i was there too. i'm not sure what was writen on mine. but i know its a very short word. hopefully it is the same as yours =) by the way, have you gotten the email from them mentioning that you passed the water test? if im not mistaken, everyone there jumped in the pool and somehow swam across right? were there 3 ppl who didn't dare jump in? what i had in mind was, as long as you are able to jump in the pool....its consider confidence in the water cos knowing how to swim or not didn't matter cos there will be tranings. hmmm???

another question i have for those waiting for your medical. say if they do notify you based on your time given in the application, do you resign straight from your current job right after medical before the results? or will sia give you the time frame you need to resign after the medical results are out? cos, what if you do not pass medical?

Thanks!

that is a minimum requirement for pilots not a cabin crew :D
as for the optical part i'm not sure, but it means you do not have to have perfect eyesight to fly.. lolx :P

peanutbutter,

You did mentioned that you stated a 3months notice right?? I did that too and my batch mates was notified 1 week after the medical, (we went together). But i was only notified of my medical approx 1 mth and 1 week after medical. Apparently, this has got something to do with the notice period, I believe.

So, don't worry. But still, there is a tendency that people do fail their medical. But I guess the chances are minimal. Anyway, you don't have to call them, cos they'll probably give you a very standard answer like:"you case haven't being finalised yet".

Now, all you need to do is, whatever you are doing now esp if ur still studying. Make sure you passed, and make sure everything will goes smoothly for the next 3 mths. For my case, I have to wait till dec den i might go for training bcos' my transcript and reports will only be issued by then. Just wait patiently ok.

Cheers
