Hi Wanabee,Gunnabee,Am

To the best of my knowledge, once you have completed the sim check, BA board you on the previous weeks sim candidates on the following Friday. A successful candidate should then be put in the Pool and then offered a course date in turn. in between, there is a medical questionaire/declaration and, if successful, instructions to get a 'basic declaration' for security clearance.

Rumour has it that the Pool is not very big and the course dates are in early 05. I wait to hear in my case!!

'round midnight,

There are a number of sim checkers and from what I can tell they each have their own scenarios (within HR constraints). A number of mates have had differing departure airfields, routes, diversions, approaches and arrival airfields. You've just got to manage the sector as it comes. Get the autopilot in asap and leave it to do the work whilst you manage the bloke(ess) in the other seat.
