hello,

I have a couple of further questions if that's ok.

First, how many planes will you have to guide at the same time?

Then, do you have the possibility to go around the airspace - for example go from A to B to D and then to C without having to land the plane if the runways - FN and FS - are both busy at moment the aircraft passes by them?

thanks a lot!

Hi all,

I applied for Eurocontrol last week. Only hours after my application was submitted I received a rejection email explaining that I was too old.

I was aware of the 25 years age limit but figured I would sneak through as my 25th birthday isn't until early next year.

However, when I queried this with recruitment I was told the training starts 2 days after my 25th birthday, so I missed the cut and my application form wasn't even reviewed.

I was informed they may consider raising the age limit to 27 years in 2020, so keep a look out.

I was told that they were considering increasing the age limit at the beginning of this year. Now they are saying 2020. It seems like they consider the situation in their free times as a hobby I wouldn't expect anything. Actually, I don't expect anything. I failed at group assessment and 2 years after my failiure, I will be too old because of 10 days. But I wouldn't apply even if I could. I think that ship has sailed.

Hi guys,

I have been going through this thread for the last 3 or 4 months due to my involvement in ATC recruitment process in my home country, and you really helped me a lot sharing your stories and experience, for which i am grateful. However, i couldnt find any information regarding Initial Class 3 Medical test except some basic information. It would be of great help if someone who went through it could share at least a part of the whole procedure so i could be more "prepared", and therefore more relaxed about the rest of the process.
This is my first post ( hoping it is only first of many), so in advance i am sorry if something is not by the rules or if this is wrong thread for my question.

Thank you all!

Hello all

I just passed FEAST I and II(both DART and Multipass) and I did the FPQ at SMATSA, although as far as I know they leave testing up to Eurocontrol(all our tests were supposedly evaluated at Eurocontrol). In a month I have a medical exam, psych test and an interview coming up so I was wondering about the requirements for those. How rigorous is the medical examination, is there anything special about the interview as opposed to a usual job interview and if they are looking for a specific profile of people or what at the psychological testing phase.
Also is anyone else also applying for SMATSA here? What have been your experiences so far? How many people do you think have made it this far(considering the starting >2000 number)?

Received my invitation a couple weeks ago... 10th of October! I’m so excited. And scared. Is there anyone here who’s attending that day (and wants to chat)?

Has anyone who passed the FEAST exam used SkyTest or any other resource to practice? Was it worth it or helpful?
I'm writing the exam in November, super excited and nervous!

I would say it is not necessary to really prepare FEAST with additional software. It really simply tests your Basic ability to work with and adapt rules and make decisions. For all other tests, either you have the abilities like 3D thinking, etc. or not.

The only thing I found useful was to get to know the Multipass with skytest. No serious practicing but simply having a clue what is coming and what your Tasks are. But again only optional, it is of course more than possible to be successful without practicing.

I just got an email saying I’m invited to do phase 1 in November. Does anyone know if DART and Multipass are included in this phase?

I’ve read that phase 1 equals FEAST 1 (so I wouldn’t have to do DART and Multipass). Can anyone clarify that?

One last thing, does the group assessment test take Place in phase 1?

If you pass the morning during FEAST1 you will do DART and Multipass in the afternoon. If you do not make it past the morning you‘ll not have to do it.

The Group Assessment is taking place the second time you are invited to Maastricht. The first Time it’s just tests on the computer.

Hi, does anyone know where or how I can practice multipass? I have Skytest already, but multipass is the only part not in there. I already passed the test 2 years ago but now I have to retake all FEAST for the Spanish job offer.
Thanks

Hi,
Check „Skytest® Preparation Software for FEAST ATCO Screenings“ again. Multipass is definitely included there. Maybe you still have the old version installed, try logging in and re-downloading the newest version.
