Basshunter at Byblos in Glasgow

On Sunday the 27th of July, one of my favourite music acts of all time, the swedish Basshunter, came to Glasgow to be part of the Clyde1 Bebo Beach Party at Byblos! What a night it was, everyone was dressed up in thier beach gear, bikinis and shorts with a couple of grass skirts thrown in for good measure. His performance was very energetic so much so that he had to take off his “m*sterbation” tshirt (his words, not mine!) because it was so hot in the club, by the end of the night most of the guys had their tops off dancing around to the pumpin’ tunes! He even got the crowd singing “Oh Flower of Scotland” before breaking into a rendition of “I can walk on water, I can...

Airlines Offering Sponsorship

Well as you can see my flying fund isnt climbing very fast if at all! I have been trying different ways than the norm to earn extra money but it hasnt really taken off…yet! Since I don’t have the vast amount of cash required i have been trawling the interweb for airlines who sponsor people with 0hrs flying time and take them right through to that Right Hand Seat. Out of 20 airlines i picked out my head 5 airlines have cadet schemes. The only downfall, for me anyway, is that they require you to be a full time resident in their country. The airlines I found are: Singapore Airlines (must be a singapore resident) Etihad Qantas (Australian Passport or permanent residency required) Virginblue.com.au (not 100% sure but think they do!) Lufthansa (site was in German so I might be wrong) Cathay ( must be permanent Hong Kong resident ) So there you go, i’ll add to this when I find more, hope it helps some people...

Preparing for Flying School Interview (take 2)

Well it’s nearly time for me to head back to Bournemouth and try again to pass stage 3 of CTC’s selection procedure. In the past 18months I have taken in their feedback and tried as best as I could to answer each question they raised. Hopefully this time, I can prove I really do have what it takes! I have never been very good at “selling myself” in interviews. From the feedback last time the main qualities which they highlighted that they were looking for are; leadership skills; self awareness; motivation; communication; responsibility; reliability; dynamism; team working; high standards; flexibility and and understanding of the Airline Industry. In the past 18 months I have had a change of job, change of location, learned new things, pushed myself in my swimming, and at work I have tried to make the most of it, by learning about myself in a professional environment and improving where I can. Wish me...
