One more question: If you hold a FAA license, do you still need to show ICAO english?
500 hrs does not min requirements, so no. FAA license shows "english proficient", so I guess that will do. But I think they will need to test you there as well...

If you did get an auto-reply, it means they have your email. I wouldn't bother trying to get ahold of them by phone, they are really busy during the pilot selection process. If you have the requirements, they will most probably get in touch with you soon enough as they seem to be needing quite a lot of pilots. Spanish does not seem to be a must-have because they have foreign pilots flying there. Good luck!

Does anyone know what to expect for the psychological evaluation with the Local Aviation Authority? Thanks for any inputs!

To the guys that went through the screening process. Upon successful completion, what is usually the next step and how long it takes?

The average I've heard of is that it takes about 2 months for the entire screening process to end from the first invitation to the final job offer. The screening process consists of:

Phase 1: Compass Test / HR Interview
Phase 2: Simulator / Polygraph
Phase 3: Skype English Evalaluation / AAC Psych Test

They are extremely busy processing probably thousands of applications for a large number of needed pilots.

Once you are cleared you receive the job offer and can expect a 4 to 5 months training period before you are done with the IOE.

Best of luck!

Ok, so upon successful completion of those tests, comes the job offer and that can be two months later?
Also, what did you guys use to prepare for the screening process- COMPASS and general knowledge tests?

The job offer comes and depending on how well they coordinate your paperwork, they may give you as early as 7-10 days before you have to leave for PTY. Sometimes more...

For the Compass Test, the most useful one I think is the one available from latestpilotjobs.com

For the general knowledge test, they seem to have their own question bank but I'd recommend you use ASA ATPL Prepware.
