Any guys or girls here have any recent experience with how long the wait is on the hold file? (I assume a long one)
Where are JQ sending people for type rating these days?
Gulf I got asked to provide references about 2 weeks later which was consistent with how long they said it would take. Think it simply depends on when the next hiring meeting is scheduled. Hopefully its good for news for you!

Interesting! Have they announced who is going to do the training??
First it was the F/o's until it got ugly with the union, then put out training captains and it never got decided...

All as I know is that several new hires have their typeratings in-house booked in April. The type rating package is completed, has been used for a couple of proving runs and is ready to go live. As for who is doing the training...... who would know, we will find out when the roster is out I guess.

I think the inhouse runs were for command upgrades and will continue that way. A rumour floating around says HR has knocked the internal type rating on the head for new hires.

Jetstar Cadetship ADAPT Skills testing

Hey all,

Just wanting to get some clarification on the skills assessment for the Jetstar Cadetship as I've just applied for the program.

From their website:

"The purpose of this assessment is to find out if you are right for a job with the airline: There are a number of elements that can make up the ADAPT Online package and you will be required to complete a selected combination of the following elements:

Maths
Physics
Aviation Knowledge
Cognitive skills
Coordination and Control
Technical aptitude
ADAPT Personality Questionnaire"

My question is: I have done no physics in high school whatsoever and its has been a few years since high school so my study knowledge isn't too crash hot either. 1) Do I need to go and cram 2 years worth of physics study into my brain? 2) Any advice from people who have done the testing on how to prepare/study?

Cheers!

Much appreciated

Anybody with recent experience on the interview too?
Thanks!

You posted in another thread you are doing EASA licence conversion. What you quoted is the cadetship criteria. Are you wanting the cadetship of direct entry recruitment?

So can anyone shed any sources to practice for the Swift aptitude tests for DEFO

I've googled a bit but nothing substantial turns up. Pinstripe pointed me to the Saville website but there's only a few practice questions there.

Any help would be appreciated.

Hey Dookie,
Did my testing earlier this month... It's not as hard as it seems, but still; practice practice practice!

Saville has some Prac exams available, as you have seen (timing and format are exactly the same).
Not much I can say about the written testing. It is what it is... Read the story, select "True, False, Can't tell" options, (don't fall into traps of assuming information is my main advice).

I paid a very minimal amount of $ for some more practice exams from Practice Aptitude Tests. They had a good mix and some were quite challenging. Do the SHL tests too. They're good for timing and difficulty for numerical.

I'd also recommend a Scientific Calculator for the numerical part, so you don't even have to write anything down and just power through.

The diagrammatic tests were different than I have seen previously;
Be prepared to work backwards to find the starting pattern!
They use letters or # * + type symbols to change the shape/size/colour of a given pattern, OR you have to figure out which symbols (and their order) that were used to change Pattern 1 to Pattern 2...

RTFQ and Practice Practice Practice!
Good luck!

Hi guys,

completely new here, however I am reading these pages nearly half a year until now. I have a simple question about quite long-term decision.
I am flying regional turboprop (ATRs) in Europe and I am deeply interested in flying in NZ, either turboprop or jet, preferably.

How difficult is whole process of converting licences, going through airlines screening, going through immigration process.. in other words, is it worth it? I have the minimum req. except licences, obviously etc.
Is somebody here who has a similar experience - an european flying in NZ/Australia?

Thanks for replies ;-)

Not sure if this helps at all, but Jetstar were really pushing the NZ positions earlier during the recruitment process. Offering "Rapid command upgrades" on turboprops and also trying to fill A320 jet FO spots.
Drop them an email, they're quite ok to deal with and will give you some more info...

That makes two of us. Seems like there isn't much info available about the adapt testing and what sort of questions can be expected.
