In that case, maybe the test is just far too new to have been included in the current selections at Belgocontrol, where only FEAST 1 and FEAST 2 are being used now.
Perhaps they'll include a new, FEAST 3, test in the future too, but as of yet, that hasn't happened.

EUROCONTROL are still accepting applications, which will be held on file for the next opportunity, details will appear on the website closer to the time.
Most of whom will then be too old unless management can be convinced they're on a totally wrong tack

hello!

In the feast test, when playing with the divided attention test. Can I use the numeric keys which are in straight line or you can only use the numpad? Or you can use whatever you like in the same time?

Thanks

Thanks! How does "multi tasking test" looks like? Does anyone know? Is it some kind of strip management atc kind of games feat some extra addon task? It might be some new thing. Couple of years ago there was no such part of the feast test.

Can someone help me?

The site says you have to be younger than 25 on the start of training and that training courses start in October.

I'm currently 25 and don't become 26 until November. Do you think I'd be able to qualify?

I got pretty close last time and this would be my last chance.

I did the Feast and DART at Eurocontrol last december. Got to Stage 2 testing but failed there unfortunately. Now I see that their age restricition is not to have turned 25 years as of October 1st 2016.

I turn 25 two weeks before that date, which feels really shitty. Can they really make an age restriciton? I guess they can make their own rules for applicants but somehow it might be viewed by some people as a form of age discrimination? I mean, does the EU regulations allow this? Just a question!

Unfortunately you are almost 2 years too old, the requirement is:

Not yet be 25 years of age on 1 October 2017.

Yes they really can make an age restriction, and have done for a long time.

Too old!

Such a shame that the maximum age is 25, it seems like such a low age limit! Strange to think that those in their late twenties and early thirties are considered too old. Oh well

It's just basic economics. An unsuccessful trainee costs a lot of money, and a successful trainee costs even more. Training, on average, lasts 3 years. Retirement age is 55. They are just making sure they are getting their money's worth and the new trainees are young enough to put in at least 30 years of service (well, to be very precise, 27 years of service).

Also, a younger applicant is less likely to have a family (therefore, less distractions during training) and more likely to have absolute freedom in moving away and dropping everything for training and the job. It's not discrimination - it's common sense.

It is. FEAST test 1 will be during the morning. If you pass, you will be asked to do FEAST test 2 (DART) right away.

I passed FEAST 1 in Romania and am scheduled for FEAST 2. I heard that besides DART there is also Multipass. I practised alot on Skytest and they just had an update to the software adding a Multi control test (kind Of strip management but also with flying planes you can guide). Does anyone know if this is similar to the multipass in FEAST?
