And I'd like to give a tip for DART. If 3 aircrafts are too close to each other, let one of them go away for a few NMs after it passes a checkpoint, then give it a new heading. In the 2nd test, I had a lot of red and blink warnings just because of that. It was a miracle no crash took place. I did what I recommended in the last test and I finished without any red or blink warnings. Also, I missed no checkpoint in the test, but I changed headings for a lot of time. I don't think changing heading takes out a lot of points.

Thank you for the info Tzakhi. I think you already passed the second phrase as long as you had DART test.
Can you please write in detail about what kind of tests were in your assessment and your experience with each of them?

Thank you tzakhi. If you had DART, i think you already passed Feast2. Probably you had both Feast1 and Feast2 in the same day.
There are some rumors about new tests introduced in Feast assessment. Can you please explain what kind of games were there and write some feedback about each?

Personally, I don't know the previous test. I asked a friend of mine who took feast 2 years ago just to give you an answer

There are 2 new tests. One of them is a visual memory test. Computer shows you some images, one after another, then give you easy math questions (really easy, don't worry about them), and shows you the images that showed you previously, with 8 similar but different images. You have to choose the right one. Exercising on visual memory might help you in this test.

The other is a spatial orientation test. You need to be fast in that module, but I think its the easiest module of the entire feast test. Don't know how to explain that one

Hi guys! maybe someone can help me out;
I took the FEAST test at Eurocontrol and failed the DART test.
I am now planning to apply at my national service provider and hopefully it goes well, but if not I would apply at Eurocontrol again in two years. The Eurocontrol website states that retesting can only be done once, so my question is does the testing at my national service provider also count as one try, or is it specific to Eurocontrol?

Hi, frtyfire, I'm afraid you will have to wait 2 years to be tested again. You're registered on Eurocontrol servers. If you want to apply for the national service provider you will have to inform them that you already had those tests. They will ask for this.

Can you please explain in details what did you find in Feast test? Please, share your experience with this test. Thank you!

Hi everyone. New here! I will be doing FEAST very soon in Canada. I asked around online if all parts of FEAST are happening at the same time. Got only 1 reply that said yes. Not sure if that person is just trying to scare me or if it's real. The testing will go on for 8 hours. Do you think we'll be getting all parts with that kind of timeframe?

Also, do you recommend I practice with SkyTest? Does FEAST look like level 1, 2, or 3 in SkyTest or is it a mix of all levels?

Final question, what exactly is the multi-pass test? Is it a specific test or different tests for attention?

Hello everyone!

Do you know any application or website where I can exercise for the English Part of the FEAST Test?

Thanks in advanced.

it could be worth searching through this whole thread as there are many Information already given.

If you passed Feast, the next step will be group exercices, planning and communication tasks. If you pass the first day you are invited for the interview one or two days later.

However, If you do the Tests for EC, you will get a briefing package together with your invitation to the Next Stage where the tasks are described in general.

Finished Feast phase 2(dart and multipass) this week and i'm waiting for my answer on if I passed or not.

Everything went well and I had full control, almost no close calls and quick solutions to everything and generally efficient routing of planes. Problem is I did poorly on the audio part, know I missed one or two on both dart and multipass and on top of that I left quite a few blank as I forgot the initial word. If I were to assess myself i'd say I did way above average on routing planes etc and below average on audio/numbers. Anyone here who have been in my position and passed?

Kinda frustrating as if I were to retake the test I could focus harder on remembering the numbers and i'd still have no problems keeping track of the planes. Made the mistake of trying to assign the minimum amount of concentration needed to the numbers and just ace the plane parts, but had a bad day and lost focus. I'll repost when I get my result and maybe I can shed some light on how much the numbers count towards your final score. Safe to say if I pass then that means doing very well on the other parts can make up for a lackluster performance on the numbers.

Hi,
for those who took the online reasoning test: how did you do and did you pass?
I know they will get back to me at some point but I'm just too curious

This was a question I wondered before FEAST test, but then in the day there was no English test at all If you are gonna take the test in EC/Maastricht, there won't be English test.

I failed in Group Assessment by the way, half of my group passed. I couldn't understand what exactly are they looking for but if someone has any questions about Phase 2, can contact with me. I will help as much as I can.

To answer my own question: I thought I did very poorly but I just received an invitation to phase 1.
