ATC IssuesA place where pilots may enter the 'lions den' that is Air Traffic Control in complete safety and find out the answers to all those obscure topics which you always wanted to know the answer to but were afraid to ask.
Thankyou this is a great help. I am awaiting to sit my first tests, and this message as given me lots of valuable information. The tiscali site is of particular help. I am struggling alot with spacial reasoning, I dont suppose anyone has got any tips on this. Also on the examples in tiscali, is the first answer of D wrong, as I belive the arrow on the right hand side is the wrong way around.
NATS selection tests - practice for logic, maths and spatial tests
I have the selection tests in August and I have read many of the threads on here which have been very helpful. I know that there will be a variety of practical assessments - logic, maths, spatial testing and I was wondering if apart from the few examples given here
HI i have my technical interview in 2 weeks and ive been cramming like mad. however since i sat it last year i still have some unanswered questions. Firstly has anyone got any suggestions as to which aircraft data to concentrate on. FL and speeds and such. and also if any one could give me a few aircraft speed or distance test questions i wouyld be greatfull the only problem with testing yourself is you already now the answer. come on i challenge ya.
Just got through assessment day at the second time of asking and set the date for my interview. I guess the personality interview is something that can't really be prepped for but before I shell out about £100 on books I would be very grateful if anybody could give me some idea of the level of detail/knowledge needed for the occupational/motivation interview - level of aircraft recognition & details etc etc. Also can anybody shed any light on the mysterious computer assessment and what it consists of. Thanks very much - hope to be joining you all soon.
I am due to take ATC aptitude test in February in Bournemouth. This year all details were online. I have got the motivation paper on aircraft etc. I have read through all the threads on ATC tests on this site. What I would like to know is 'Are the tests the same as last year? - cubes, number checking, basic arithmetic and diagramming? - as this is not stated in the information they give you. Look forward to your reply.
Hello Streamline Shamrock!! I am Kika and I am from Mallorca. I've my aptitude tests in London on the 8th of March. Could you please give some information about the computer tests? Some links where I can train...., Books to read...Any information will be helpful Thanks and Good luck in your exam!!!! Kika
In this very good resource the NATS paper has a mysterious fifth test that is not on the site. Is this still in the test? and is it simple. Also with reguard to the sample paper, is the actual question set likely to be more difficult or is every candidate likely to get near full marks?
i've got the selection tests coming up pretty soon and needless to say i'm glad i found the information posted on this site. Still got one Q about the maths bit tho..obviously calculators aren't allowed but are you allowed to scrawl down notes on working the sums cos i find that much easier?
Before I get shot down with criticism for not searching through what is already on the forum (which I have done, all very useful) Iíd just like to state that my situation is a little different:
I live in Australia and have been invited for stage one of the selection. Iíve only got the one shot at this as Iím an old timer at the age of thirty. I persuaded HR to give me a chance as Iím a commercial flying instructor.
Itís going to take a lot of effort to get half way round the world to the testing, let alone the interviews.
What Iím trying to find out is:
- What is the usual time frame between a successful initial selection and interviews?
- Are the Technical and Personnel interviews on the same day?
- Are candidates ever called back for a 2nd interview?
If anyone is prepared to answer a couple other questions please PM me.
There was about 3 months between initial tests & interview for me. Time scale is fairly up to you as you book your own slot on the system from several available - if you can't make them - wait a while and more will come up in the following months. Interviews are all held on the same day - few candidates just rotated between personnel, tech and computer stuff on my day. Dunno about 2nd interviews but I can't imagine they do as it seems a fairly cut and dried - your either in or not - process.
