xxpheonixx - Is that only for DEO, or all entry plans?

I fairly recently got an offer through the CEOTP program for this year, even though I'd previously heard rumours about recruiting centres saying the spots were full.

Hey guys,

I completed the air crew selection test and passed for pilot earlier this year and at the time they made it very clear that my results were valid for 5 years. This was about 7 months ago. I have now just been informed by CFRC that the results are valid for only 3 years. Anyone know when this change was made? Has there been a mistake?

Kind regards

Hi all,
In mid-January '20, CFRC Toronto told me FY20/21 has 11 DEO pilot spots. Does anybody have any information to add? I couldn't find any intake numbers for the upcoming fiscal year on these forums.
Thanks much.
Edit: Follow-up question: I asked CFRC Toronto if they know when the first round of DEO pilot selections takes place for a given fiscal year. The person that I spoke to didn't have an answer. Does anybody on this forum have any information about that? Thanks much.

I passed my Aircrew Selection Test in November and they told me they were valid for 5 years.

I heard (not confirmed) that numbers were 11 DEO, 25 CEOTP, 28 ROTP for 2021.

Someone in the CAF that heard it from someone at the DPRG, or something like that...

DPGR maybe? Lol I don%u2019t know. %u201CThose people%u201D in Ottawa. Irregardless (not a word), those are the numbers I heard. This waiting is difficult. Seems like last year people started hearing results in late March / early April, which years prior to that people were hearing result a lot later. So it could be worse!

Good luck to all.

EDIT: Yes, DPGR!

Hi everyone,
I am a new member on here and i have followed the forum for a few months now. I have a few questions regarding the kind of things the recruiters look for in the CV of candidates. I did the ACS test in November 2019 and I havent reached the score to pass it. So until i redo it, im trying to do stuff to make my resume and experiences even better until I pass my interview. So, do you guys have any ideas what are the best stuff to do?
Also, im trying to get in with the ROTP program.

Thank you,

Tiwill123

Has your CFRC ever given you an idea of how well you're currently ranked on the competition list? Have they ever implied anything to you, to give you a better understanding of where you stand? I'm just curious, because I'm nervous myself.
Also, which CFRC detachment is your application being processed in?

I was told last Sept during second interview extreamly vaguely that I am "about" right in the middle of the competition list out of the ppl that had completed all required prerequisites for pilot at the time (ie aircrew/medical/interview).. unfortunately I dont think I would fall into the top 11 but I'm being extremely optimistic since it's my (and I assume all.other applicants) dream job.

I think it was 16 for FY 19/20. I heard it was 11 for FY 20/21 as well. So yeah it's getting more competitive.

hi,

Get high marks at school , so you become competitive for Kingston , Practice a lot to pass the ACS , volunteer and sports, but don’t focus too much on that. In my experience once you pass acs and you are good at school you get a slot for pilot rmc.

The demand for baby pilots was reduced significantly. I was contacted in January to tell me they have raised the requirements for pilot and i was no longer admissible for now.

I was scheduled for my interview a week earlier after passing the tests in Trenton and the recruiter told me that i had good odds since my overall file score was above the last offer.

It's a bit frustrating since my first aircrew selection test was canceled and delayed for 6 months but i'll keep trying for a couple years (i'm getting older tho at 30 y.o). Hopefully they lower the requirements back to normal once the demand will grow a little.

I work at a big four as an engineer and i just cant stop thinking about this, truly feels like a calling.

Thanks for the heads up.

What did you apply through? DEO? ROTP?

I just did my ACS this past November, medical in December, but haven't been told anything. I'm hearing rumours about them not taking any CEOTP internal candidates. I really wish there was some information passed on to people about what's going on. Maybe no news is good news.

I applied as DEO. Last year was 16 positions for 2019/2020 and 11 for 2020/2021... so yeah i can understand why they raised the requirements.

I received a letter outlining the minor medical concerns which render me currently unsuitable in January of 2019. Having been working to resolve those issues, I was going to start the process of trying again this year, but for the pandemic. At least that gives me time to be absolutely certain that those concerns are entirely resolved.
