Hi,

I am starting training on the 14th Feb with BA and wanting to see who else maybe on my course.

Also I am looking for long term accommodation or someone to flat share with.

Hey guys I don’t know if anyone could help me. I have an assessment day coming up but I’m so scared about the reach test. I’m only 5’1ft I know the height is 5’2ft but lots of people have told me if I can do the reach test I should be fine. However looking at the reach test 6’7 ft is pretty high just wondering is it really 6’7ft? I’m so nervous because I have been sent home because of my height!! Can someone please help me ????

Hi guys
I start my 6-week training in April and I have my best friend's wedding at the beginning of June (nightmare situation). It's on a Saturday and I'm just wondering if there are often days or weekends off between training. Or if I have to wait til I get my training schedule through.

Of course I would have to choose BA and not go to the wedding but it could seriously test a friendship.

Hope someone can help!

Hi Sonia! I had my AD last week and can confirm how the reach test section works.

Basically, you have to be able to reach up into a mock overhead compartment and firmly hold on to a first aid kit inside, which tests how far you can reach. You'll then be measured physically with a kind of slide measure like they use at doctors' offices/hospitals. You'll also hold on to a mock cabin door with your right hand and reach down and grab a cord on the floor with your left.

So, they do state that you need to be between 5'2" and 6'1" on the BA website, but I'm not 100% sure how strict they are on that if you're off by just an inch.

I believe the way they put it was that your reach with your first closed has to be just over two metres (which is about 6'7" as you mention). To check this, you could use a tape measure at home and make a little pencil mark on the wall or use masking tape if you're able to see if you can reach that high.

Hope that helps!! I would say if you aren't totally sure, go along anyway and give it a go if you really want to try for the job! You might just about be alright.

Hi
I had my assessment on the 16th January, they said I'd hear back within 7 days which it has been. Do you think they meant 7 working days? How quickly did others get the email?
