Hi guys,

I have been successful in my application to the program and was wondering whether anyone who has already had their assessment day could elaborate a little more on what is to be expected of the assessment day?

I am in the middle of doing my interview preparations and would like a little insight into the more aviation specific questions I am likely to be asked.

The best advice I can give you is to have real life examples which you can change to suit the question. The interview goes really quickly and when you are out you won't remember most of the questions as it's intense to try not to blabber..
For example they may say "give me an example of when you had to lead a team of people and what was the result..
A good example could be anything you have done such as captain of a football team when you won or when you organised your best mates wedding day and the outcome.
It's important to have several life experiances to draw from as if you draw from one experiance the interview becomes repetative. (all this info is available on any interview techniques website) You will need a good example of why you want to be a pilot and I suggest you have an example to expand on the answer. Because you don't actually need experiance in flying the subject of the interview is more on you as a person than on the industry but it's a good idea to know the general layout of an aircraft etc etc.
I seem to remember being more nervous about the team exercise than the interview because everyone is fighting to suggest/say something.
Remember the people who actually assess you are employed to get the best applicants and are personel recruiters rather than actual flyers (this was my impression with my intervew and indeed the whole day)
Bottom line .... Be yourself, give good non repetative answers and expand on questions as much as possible but without blabbering.
Hope this helps good luck.

Thanks for your response, it came a little late for me however I wasn't successful in passing through to the interview stage anyway.

Should come in useful for someone though

Please can someone advise if my understanding of what is posted here is correct.
Total course cost 65,000 (approx 45,000 paid up front) 19,800 over five years.
14,000 type rating not paid by student but bonded for five years?

I don't have the document in front of me as I type this so doing it from memory. The deposit for the course is around 23k. You are bonded 14k for the rating but for 3 years. You repay your 19800 over five years, but you don't even see it as they take it off your salary.

OK...have I got the right end of the stick this time..... you pay out of your own pocket 23 K at the upfront deposit stage then 19,800 over (3 or 5) years out of your salary?

Yes you have, overall you will need to fiond 65k out of your own pocket. Flybe will loan you 19800 to pay for the rest of the course, like you said this is paid back over 60 months.

You are bonded for 3 years for the type rating.
