Another reminder about using "text speak." Don't, if you want your posts to remain. Clear communication will serve you very well in this industry. If you want to text, then simply text one another.

jOb

hi Guys,

Am CURRENTLY training in Australia and got my commercial pilot licence on a multi engine aircraft and also hold instrument rating with approximately 250 hours flight time and 50 hours on multi engine.

I am kenyan nationality and 21 years of age and looking forward to join a career in kenya airways, but i don't meet the minimum requirements as i have mean grade of C in maths and failed the others.

Do you guys think that i can get a job without meeting minimum requirements?

Hope to hear from you.....

I did my psychomotor today and i agree with all of you. It was not a good experience.But one thing am sure of is that what matters most is one's improvement from the previous round and since i continuously improved in all rounds, i hope to get an email from kq next tuesday.Back to the tormenting waiting game...

I totally agree with you supercaptain. I wish i could sleep until the results come out but for now we will just have to exercise patience. From the thread I've gathered that maybe they will take a maximum of 15 people. Hope we make it to the end.

When did they say we should expect communication?

Great! And did you answer all the questions in txtspk, in the same fashion as you have attempted to "communicate" above? If so, I'd say you're a shoe-in. Good effort! Nice to know KQ is employing pilots with the communication abilities of 15-year-olds to fly its aircraft. No wonder accidents like Douala happen.
