Tom's Airbus-Boeing comparison is the best of all!
You get all sorts of jokes and experiences during the classroom sessions.It probably the only way to resist it. I stayed in Brian's B&B (availability on the school's website) for the whole 2 weeks for a reasonably price. Cheddar is nice and quiet just what a student needs.
In the meantime dropped both of my part-time jobs in May to make some more time for the studies and then in July I finally left the catering industry behind after 8 years. I joined to a well-known financial institution's call centre as an adviser. It's not a rewarding job at all but it pays the bills and I can just as much as I used to when I had 2 jobs. And most importantly less physical work and even a day-off at the weekend. I'm looking for an aviation related job like a ramp agent or in ops but it is quiet hard into somewhere.
Unfortunately I haven't done any flying in 2011 which is a shame but I had a good reason: money. This year is going to be different because my loan application has been approved 2 weeks ago (still with a crap APR but I push it down.I've got 4 years for it:)). It looks like once I'll be over the February exams I start to look for an hour building place somewhere close around Edinburgh possibly in Perth.
The Etihad guys didn't get back to me regards to the cadet application and also my other cadet application was turned down by Atlantic Airlines too. There is not much I can do I just have to get on with it...
Otherwise not many changes, I moved to Stockbridge in March (it's probably the nicest part in Edinburgh) and I love it.I should have done this earlier. And I still don't have a driving licence but I'll need to start working on it after March.
That's all for now and here my results too, I just scanned them:
