GOOD NEWS FOR FRESH fATPL HOLDERS

Also here -

AviationJobs.Me Flight Crew: A320 Rated and Non Type Rated First Officers Aer Lingus Ireland

Quite gobsmacked at this. Anyone care to read the Essential criteria? All you need is a fATPL and a MCC. Obviously applicants with experience and a 320 rating will have the edge, but at least people with no experience will have the chance to apply.

Its a good news story for us fATPL folk who usually don't get a sniff with a major like Aer Lingus. With their cadet recruitment and now the direct entry recruitment they are leading the way in terms of fairness for all to apply.

I am not naive to the fact that Irish in the desert with 1000s of Airbus hours won't have a considerable edge , however fair play to Aer Lingus for giving everyone a shot!!

Hats off to Aer Lingus , a few airlines could learn a thing or two from them!!!!

Hi guys, when providing references is it about instructors from flight training, previous employers or people who know you for 5 year background check?

I just received an e-mail inviting me to complete the online assessment. Anyone have some information on how to prepare before starting the tests?

Best regards

I just completed the tests. They are quite similar to the Norwegian assessment. A questionnaire, some verbal reasoning, multitasking and reactivity - among others. Good luck to everybody! ;-)

Is a joystick / mouse required? I would not expect any other help from others than that as this is no doubt a very sought after job.

Are any of you gents A320 rated? I am not and so was shocked to even get an invite to have a go at the online assessment as I thought the amount of rated 320 drivers who would apply would be massive.

Regards,
SAR

Hi guys,
I have been invited to complete the online assessment. I think we are facing the same tests as for ezy and nax, maybe we will find something more maths oriented stuff.
probably I will take the test tonight
Good luck to everyone and keep in touch about any feedback

cheers

PS: I am not 320 rated

They always invite everyone - Nobody has had a look at your application yet, it's just a computer sending our invitations.

You'll need a hella score to get in as a 250hr wonder, but at least you have a shot!

I do wish they gave more than 48 hr notice, on a weekday as well! These aren't the kind of tests you just tick off quickly before lunch either!

Few guys from my flight school never got the mail to complete the tests so I assume there was some , however small , filtering!!

I think i did the test already for the 4th or 5th time. Like always, the most of us will get a pfo letter. This is just a big filter. Don't have huge expectations.

I have done the test and I can tell you that it was not the same as the previous year. More similar to EZY's one. Last year I was not called in for the interview (not type rated and only 250hrs at that time). A friend of mine was only type rated with 250hrs and was called in for an individual interview and a sim check. He's now F/O for EI...
So this year I'm Type Rated :-)

Glad to see you're proud about having bought a TR! Now please do me a favour and mention in this thread when you get your PFO letter, so we can laugh at your 'investment'. FFS they had 3000+ applications last year and turned down PLENTY of A320 rated/experienced pilots....

Indeed my TR was not very expensive because I have been lucky to have some financial supports from my company and from the French government. That's why I decided to make this leap. Moreover with TR some French airlines are recruiting now so I don’t think it is a bad “investment”
SeventhHeaven, I'm not pretending I'm sure to be called this year. I just want to maximize my chances to be called regarding my friend's experience... Your post seems to be a little bit hateful.
Anyway good luck to all !

Surely its too early for a reply yet @Wrightflyer1 , the tests don't have to be completed until 1600 tomorrow !! Although I would not be surprised if things started moving fast after this first stage!! PFOs from Monday i would think.....
