Hi al!

Yesterday visited Eurocontrol for the phase 2 tests, I waited 2 years for this day because at my previous attempt I failed at this stage.
Unfortunally we had to wait till today to hear the results but I made it to the interview! So now preparing for it!

What I want to say to al the people who are going to give it a try;
after discussing the flightplan I was convinsed that I made the same (stupid) mistakes like 2 years ago and would not pas... although I did not give up, and see the result. So although you have the feeling you screwed up keep going and try to make the best out of it!!

A question for people who already had the interview, can you give some details about what kind of this questions they will fire? How long do you have to wait to hear the results?

Good luck everybody!

Hello to all !
to the-one-eu: I sent my application in December, and in 2 weeks I got my email in which it said "we have now received you application and will be in contact for a date to attend phase 1", or something similar. If you have done the whole application, filled the "questionnaire" (the one they give you to fill following a link), sent your diplomas / qualifications, the optical exam, and you HAVE NOT received any response from HR, contact them. I think the number is available in the website, and I'm sure they'll be glad to pick up the phone. Maybe there was a problem with your email, or maybe they had a problem (I don't think they would have, but who knows...).
Call or write again, just as an advice. Post something here if there is any news.

to subber: hey, just asking the same as xnnfm, HOW was the interview?
Cheers !

Just came back from the interview, damn it was hard. Especialy the 2 exercises I've got. For the rest, I did my homework so it was easy to answer their questions about EC. I will get the results tomorrow, keeping fingers crossed.....

Because of the bunch of PM's I received about the interview here some information about their questions. You should have some knowledge about Eurocontrol in general, MUAC and the tasks of an ATC'er. Questions you can expect are:
- Tel something about Eurocontrol
- What are the tasks of an ATC'er (seperation details!)
- What is FAB about? / What is SES about?
- Do you know some airplanes...
- What do they work on in Hungary?

Of course you get lots of questions about your personal life, your motivation etc. etc.

Because of the fact that my younger brother is a ATC student for 2 years now at Eurocontrol they asked me some details about the work, the time in Luxembourgh etc.. I think you would not have to know this if you have only some basic knowledge about ATC.

At the end you get some exercises, I had some problems at that point, for example, you need to calculate the distance covered if a plan takes of, flyies 3 circles and turns back to the runway. I had no idea how to calculate the distance of a circle at al! I'm 25 a.t.m. maybe I did those exercises when I was 17 but I forgot....

They made clear that the final result is based on the total selection proces (phase 1, 2 + interview). So in that case, despite I messed up at the exercis, I still have a little hope on a possitive result. Tomorrow morning at 9.00 o'clock I will know more.

Hello Erikk. Thanks for the information. It's very useful. I hope you get a positive "qualification" and get to the TRAINING ! One more thing: do they ask you those MATHS questions? Or are there more things like Multiplication, sums???
Cheers
