Same with me... any idea of what the video interview entails? Has anyone here ever done an assessment of this type?

Guys! Just click the link to the video interview and watch the tutorial.
You will not be skyping with anyone, from what I understood, they will play you a video and ask something about it. You will have 90 seconds to answer. What I don't know is how are you going to answer.. type, voice message, video? No clue..

If it is the same format as the video interview used for last year's cadet programme, you get around 6 questions.

You see a person asking you a pre recorded question, you then get 30 seconds to come up with an answer, and then the software automatically starts recording through your webcam and gives you around 90 seconds to answer. It then moves onto the next question.

All a bit surreal, but try to treat it like a real interview (suit, tie etc), and take the time to set up a good 'studio' with the correct lighting, no interruptions...

Good luck all

Hi all,

Just got the email for the online assessment.
Anyone could give me any hint on how to prepare the assessment?
What about the exercises on latestpilotjobs?
Are the links working on MacBook?

Many thanks in advance!

Guys, seriously.
Especially for people with some experience. If you can't do that by yourselves, you shouldn't had applied at the first place.

I am not aware of anything bro...

Nevertheless I did them all and apart from the Maths which I have no clue the rest of them were normal.

Hello everyone!
I've received today the email for the online assessment.
Do you know what the "Pilot Assessments" consist of?...What kind of tests are there?
Are there exercises that require the use of a joystick?

Thanks and good luck to all!

Hi FYWH!
Thanks for the advice I'll take a look at that site

Do you (or anyone else that knows this thing) confirm that a joystick is not necessary during the test?
I ask this thing because a friend of mine applied for AL and he told me that there were some tests that required the use of joystick (with a keyboard they were almost impossible).
