As far as I know there are several Spanish Maastricht controllers on PPRuNe, they may be able to give you an answer about the difference in lifestyle (posting on the 'Spanish' part of the forum might trigger a more specific response). Looking out of the window I have to admit the weather could be ... well ... somewhat of an issue ...

You lack just as much sun in the Netherlands as you do in the UK, seems to be a problem which is hard to get away from! Unless you apply for Aena in Spain that is...

Hello!!

I don't have much to say that is not already in the forum...
It wasn't easy but it was fun so don't worry and just try to be in shape...

The test of the cubes need a lot of reflexion but not more than the other tests so it's perfectly feasable!!

Instructions are really well explained and you always have some training before the real test to really understand what you'll have to do...

Good luck!
Pauline

Phase 2 on the 5th May, just got the invite documents now.
Hope I can get the time off work.

Has anyone had experience with postponing/deferring a phase 2 testing?
I don't want to do that but it may be necessary :/

Hey everyone, Can I ask, how long was it after you completed your online application and sent details of your school qualifications that eurocontrol got back to you about an interview?

Donnyboy,
they will then ask you to go for a full eye examination with your own optician and once you forward them the results of this then they will further assess your application.
