Hi all,
I have a problem with registration to online tests.
I received email from AL to register with their test partner. I have IDpass for that.
But when I'm trying to register with them, I'm not receiving any email (and during the registration process, on the screen, they wrote, that they are sending registration details immidiately), so I can't register or log in.
I'm using the same email adress as for AL registration.
WTF?
What I'm doing wrongly?

fungi, check if it is going to your junk mail. Failing that contact aer lingus directly.

Any bets as to when the inevitable PFO is going to make an appearance?

3000TT and those tests reduced me to mush. I even had a dream (or nightmare maybe!) about being attacked by a giant cube with strange shapes on the side.

But apparently, it's very important as if you don't score highly enough in the tests, you don't have the aptitude for flying.

In that case, I don't know how I managed the last 6 years of commercial flying on balance. Feeling strangely inept today...

Has anyone else just received an email about doing the 7 online tests? I did the tests a few weeks back, so it appears to have been sent in error but I thought it was worth checking just in case

From reading the email, it is a follow up to remind people they need doing before the 11th July. It says if you've done them then thanks and ignore this email pretty much

Hi everyone

what did you put on the request: do you hold a valid JAA atpl?

I don't have it, only frozen ATPL and CPL MEP IR, but don't see any box to write about that

Has anyone else got an email reminding them to take the online tests?

I took the online tests over a week ago, but got an email yesterday saying "... if you haven't already taken the tests, please do so now."

Just wondering if it's a blanket email or whether there are gremlins in the system.

I put no to that question as I have a frozen ATPL and still I received the email to do the tests.

Cheers

Hi CY, have you tried to login again to figure out what the 7 tests are about? I have got the same email but I haven't done anything yet? Worth dropping an email to their HR to make sure they received the 1st completed test? I never got a "...thanks for playing with us..." mail after the test...

square jerry can ?

Did anyone else get a maths question about a 'square' jerry can with length 27cm and width 25cm and given height ?

Was this just a badly worded question or did I miss a trick here?

The trick is that I was asked to calculate volume of liquid inside the container, not the containter capacity. And of course it wasn't fully filled.

I didn't spot that. Ooops. I was more thrown by the fact the square had sides of unequal length !

Am surprised they said most wouldn't be able to answer all the questions in the given time. Thought they weren't that tricky.

Hi guys,

Just completed the tests.
The "death tunnel" was pretty easy with the few minutes of training before starting the real test.
The numerical test was pretty easy too even if I had a hard time reminding some formulas... ( KW to HP??? thought we were flying A320 here)
Reactivity: hard to make a mistake.
Observation of the drawings was easy at the beginning and became a bit hard at the end.
Same remarks for the spatial test.
Verbal reasonning, 12 minutes it s just impossible to complete the test, around 35 answers out of 49.

Good luck guys!

I have the impression that less guys take the aer lingus selection compared to the easyjet one.
