I knew it was about 0.75 from HP to kW, then I saw the factor was given in the question. Tough one, really.

I have the impression that less guys take the aer lingus selection compared to the easyjet one.
Less guys? Every single pilot without a job applies to Aer Lingus. They've recieved over 5000 applications so far.

Erm.....

Where are you getting your numbers from?! 5000 applications?! So the equivalent of a third of all professional pilots in the UK have applied to Aer Lingus?...

Hi!
I can't remember which was the question about Hp and Kw conversion...
Time is running up... The 11 o july is near...

p.s. I also think that 5000 applications are too many...

Not only UK pilots apply... Almost EVERY pilot in Europe with no job applies to Aer Lingus / Ryanair / etc. Add the guys who are stuck in the middle east and wanna go home and the 5000 will be quite accurate

A large number of FlyBE pilots have also applied.

It depends on what they are after though? A good number of Captains from FlyBE have applied and done the tests, as have a LOT of F/Os.

If you look at the criteria on the website:

Essential criteria
A valid JAA/EASA issued ATPL (or frozen ATPL).
A current ME/IR.
MCC qualification.
Current Class 1 Medical certificate.
Provide 3 verifiable references.
English Language Proficiency level 4 or higher.
Permanently eligible to live and work in the EU with an unrestricted worldwide passport.
Able to pass a strict airport security vetting procedure.
Possession and demonstration of the key competencies outlined below .
Strong leadership potential with well developed teamwork skills.
Excellent communication skills - fluent in English, spoken and written.
Proven Interpersonal skills.
A broad awareness of our customers' expectations.
Flexible and adaptable with an enthusiastic and positive attitude to change.
Desirable criteria
Applicants who hold a current A320 type-rating or have multi-crew commercial experience.
Full and accurate reference information will be sought as part of the selection process
Please note that if the volume of candidates meeting all essential criteria is high, Aer Lingus will then takedesirable criteria into account. This means that even if you meet all essential criteria, you may not be invited to interview.

If the number of applications is that high, and it really is 5000 applications, I can't help but feel that the diserable criteria will be taken into account.

Although, that's assuming that they don't just wield the axe on the aptitude test results alone - ala easyJet with the DEP scheme.

An interesting argument (put forward by a psychologist!) goes that after the age of 25, your score in these tests decreases. And certainly after years of flying, I really struggled with those. I'll be for the chop methinks.

Does anybody else have the following application status "invite to pre selection online test" even though they did the online tests?

Yes, psycho tests are always scary.

I had a near perfect run on the other parts; all cubes solved, no tunnel crashes etc..
Guess I'll know next week.
