Sounds a bit risky DJ, people have been caught out knowing "a little about alot" , they prefer to pick areas and drain you of all you know on it. If you decide to research about something, you better know it well, they keep pushing you. Whereas if you just say I have never really looked into that topic, it will probably work best in the long run, if you can just learn the lot!

As long as you can justify why you know only a little on a subject that should be good enough.... but hey whose to say but the interviewers.

Try to know a little about a lot rather than a lot about a little.
Put the time in and know a lot about a lot!

For my interviews i go in with the mentally of to try and know more than my interviewers. Sometimes impossible but its not a bad target to try and hit.

Agree with that, in my interview I was asked about the differences between airbus and boeing cockpits. Obviously gave the usual chat about fly-by-wire etc, but made them chuckle when i mentioned the different coloured route-lines on the GPS, Airbus being green instead of Boeings pink! They must love the geeky plane jokes!

Deviation Test Stage 2

can someone please help me with a question. During stage 2 you have to keep the cross centred. I would like to know when you move the joystick does the cross move in the same way as the joystick or like an aircraft stick ie when you move it down the cross moves up? I woulod be very grateful for any help. Also any tips for the frame game?

Hi RD,

The joystick acts as if you were flying an aircraft. If you push forward the line will move downwards or pull back and the line will move up. Not sure what you mean by 'frame game' so can't help.

By the frame game I imagine you mean flying the "aircraft" through the boxes or frames? The only advice I can give you for that is fly through the boxes! As with any kind of flying be very careful that you don't over-compensate for being slightly off-line. It's all about smooth control inputs

Hey all,

I had my Phase 2 yesterday - sadly I didn't make it through but have been invited back in 6 months.

Needless to say I am a bit gutted but at least it's a positive that I'll have another chance.

Is there anyone out there who went through the same and was successful at reapplication - if so I'd love some tips on how you went about improving your scores the second time around - personally I think the Deviation Indicator and flyign through frames was realtively easy for me - I got decent scores - though the DI4 part 4 (ie the really horrible one at the end) and the Hands game really threw me!

Well done to those that got through - hopefully given some time I'll get to Join you!

Matt

Matt101,

I passed stage 2 a few weeks back, having previously done PILAPT tests with Cabair too. As far as the "Hands" task goes my only advice is to take your time and really think about what you're being asked to identify; maybe play it out in your head first - remember you've got as long as you want in between hearing the search criteria and having to press the green button!

You're doing phase 4 the day after? I knew that you could sometimes manage to do phases 3 & 4 quite close together, didn't realise it was that close! Best of luck mate!

Math Test For Ctc

Firstly thank you to all of you for your help. I was wondering if any of you can help with a query I have?

For the math test can any of you give some examples of the type of questions they ask. I think someone mentioned conversions and speed but can anyone give me an example ie the wording? I would really be grateful!

Also any news whether Wings and ATP piots are now being sent to Ryanair, either now or in the future.

Mucho Gracias....you all are the best
