its been years, and nobody, i mean nobody, tried to share SkyTest with us,,, great. now if somebody wants it, just should buy it. even though, i don't see any difference between skytest tests and IQ tests available on internet.

Hey,
I have some questions about sdm test. There are 4 letters in the board so are those the ckeckpointsk how do you divide the aircrafts? Is it from their first checkpoint? How do you call a conflict either opposite or local? Do you just call them or their is anything else to do! Can you give me more directions?
ThAnk you

Hey,
Is this SDM Test still included in FEAST ?

How about this Multipass test - does it have something to do with the SDM test + sector management ?

Heya from what I gather the SDM has been replaced by DART. I sat it during my RAF tests and it was possibly the most stressful part of all the aptitude tests - you'll leave thinking you've totally failed!

The wiki page is pretty helpful:

DART (Dynamic ATC Radar Test). The DART test requires applicants to guide aircraft safely and efficiently through a system of checkpoints taking certain traffic constraints into consideration: The DART test requires applicants to guide 3 airplanes safely and efficiently through a system of 4 checkpoints (A,B,C,D), taking certain traffic constraints into consideration: All 3 planes are only allowed to fly in an altitude of either 100, 200, or 300. First without any other planes, then with air traffic of various other planes, one does not have control over (and which are normally always on collision course) and finally, one must additionally, simultaniously do some mental arithmetic: You are listening to a sequence of letters and digits. Whenever 2 digits are to be heard, one must add them together: For example, "AT3QSK7TBV8PH4" requires at first an addition of "3+7" and then as soon as you hear the digit 8, an addition of "7+8" and then "8+4"; so, in other words, to remember the last digit of the last addition and to add it with the next coming digit. The top priority is, of course, to avoid conflicts or collisions between the planes, but also to give possibly very few commands - as fewest as it is possible. Planes on the screen respond to the given instructions with a certain time delay.

First of all, try to relax. Second of all, discard that SkyTest or whatever it is you're using. You're getting stressed now for reasons that might not even be of any issue in the actual FEAST (everything will be clearly and well-explained to you), but which might actually cause you harm and impair your ability in the real test (approaching FEAST whilst being apprehensive from the get-go about stumbling across some SkyTest problem that might not even occur in FEAST is a no-no). A great example of why you shouldn't bother with any FEAST "preparatory" software...

I wouldnt recommend using the SkyTest SDM either. Back when I applied for the DFS, I tried to use SkyTest to get familiar with the test. I didnt manage to find a single opposite conflict while practicing, so I was really stressed out going into the test.

When I was actually being tested, they had a 45 minute instruction for the test that made everything very clear. I found like 6-8 opposite conflicts during the actual test.

Also I had my FEAST II in April and I didnt have to do the SDM anymore. They now have something called Multipass that, if I recall correctly, completely replaced the SDM
