No… my agent was the costumer…

RMK : Look likes, that is a European requirement of AA

Hi guys, on my way to AMS right now, I got some SIM info: Departing 36L AMS, raw data, no autothrottle, lots of CRM, VOR radials interception, ILS app, no eng fail or any other malfunction, wind 300/10. ATPL info anyone?

Interview :
11 candidates every day ….
15 min for introduction of AAI and the SIM program
30 min ATPL Test, 16 questions only (with answers) -see below
15-20 min Interview (Introduce yourself, What do you know about AAI… no technical question)
40-50 min (each 20min) fix based 737-8 SIM :
- no tricks
- no air work
- TO follow SID Rendi 1Z, leaving PAM on R120 for 1min, left turn to intercept LOC27, landing > change seats.
- Wind 300/10, ceiling ~500ft
> you have enough time for preparation at the briefing room (Cockpit :”As briefed before”), checklist simple
> only fly and switch Radio +NAV +MCP
> we got all the same scenario on this day... other day other SID/STAR ???????
>>> get MS-FSimulator and train on the computer, it helps to get the time felling, when you switch the VOR+MCP.....

conclusion : really friendly environment, no pressure, ATPL question out of daily life, AAI guys are nice (a big compliment to the patience and friendliness > if you will fly there, they are really good colleges)
it is my first interview, which I rate with A+++; other companies should take this as example!!



second Interview :

Hello Pilotfly-FL410, thanks for the great writeup, very helpful.

You mention the ATPL test questions, "ATPL question out of daily life" could you give an example?

Thanks.

Here some of the questions :

Interview : there was only 16 questions and 30min time.

Part AIRCRAFT GENERAL KNOWLEDGE
- When a compressor surge occurs ? (EGT increases/decreasing rapidly, N1/N2 increase-EGT decrease)
Part PERFORMANCE
-The stalling speed or the minimum steady flight speed at which the airplane is controllable in landing configuration is abbreviated as (VMC,VS,VS0,VS1) ?
-Takeoff distance available is (TORA, +clearway, +stopway, distance from brake release to 35ft)
-To obtain the optimum descend distance, the TAS must ( increase/decreased in headwind, decreased only for constant IAS descetn in headwind) ?
-Fill in the words to correctly completet the following sentences. V1 must never be less than .... and must not ... or ...(VR,VMBE,V2 ; VMCG,VR,VMBE ; VMCG,VMBE,V2 ; VR,VMC,VMBE)
Part MASS AND BALANCE
-Find max allowed Payload :
DOW 13659kg, MTOW 20820kg, MLW 18600kg, TF 500kg, TOF 1500kg (6450kg, 4950kg, 5080kg, 5670kg) ?
-Dry Operation Mass is the mass of the Aeroplane less ?
Part METROLOGY
-Fog and cloud formation takes place by (Evaporation, Condensation, Sublimation, none above)
-What does this symbole means an SIG-Chart _^_ (mod./sev. Ice, mod./sev. turbulence)
-Tropopause is lower ? (Over the N-Pole than over Equator ; Over the Equator than over the S-Pole; In summer than winter in moderate latitude, south of the Equator than north of it)
Part LAW-REGULATION
-"As spec. Altitude or Height on the precision approach at which a missed approach must be initiated if the req. visual ref. to continue the appr. has not been established". This is definition for (DA/H, MDA, VAP, MAP)
——————
A decrease in density….
1. Gives a longer T/O roll and a smaller rate of climb
2. Gives a shorter T/O roll and a higher rate of climb
3. ?
4. ?

A descent with a constant mach number…..
1. Increases the TAS
2. Decreases the TAS
3. TAS stays constant
4. Has nothing to do eith altitude




BUT NOTHING IS FOR FREE.... EVERYBODY ALWAYS WANT SOMETHING.... BUT THEY NEVER GIVE SOMETING BACK (PUPLISH NEW QUESTION OR/OR/OR ..)
I am sick of it ! I always spend hours and hours to write down, paint, screenshots, video record and so on... does one of you do the same after the interview ? or send me a update (that's the minimum !!!!)

Second : i always get some PM, but I'm unable to write back > writers ...exceed available storage limits... > a FO should be able to handle his own postbox before he handle a big machinery !

Dear Colleagues,
i got the Info, that all the questions (Test) was the same as I published …

where are the feed backs ?
only Take and no Return !!

it is really sad, that everybody take my infos…. And doesn’t return anything for the next guys….

shame on you…

it this behavior a good way for CRM ?

for the groundcourse with AAI, I give only information to the guys who wrote me back (only 2)
for the others, have to fight with the daily tests and the CBT..

FO: good results in the CBT and groundcourse will rise the upgrade possibility for CPT !!!

There is not much to write since you typed up all the info including the approach plate, which they changed. They probably going to change it again.

Can guarantee Air Atlanta don't give feedback on why you fail and they only hired pretty much all the type rated guy on the august interview, few non-rated FO (if I remember correctly), zero guys for the cruise relief pilot.
