Mental math, no paper. Some easy addition and subtraction, but also squaring and square roots, too. Check one of my previous posts for a link to a mental math practice web page.

They way I undestood it, they only have one "list" which you are put on. Whenever someone needs new FOs they just take the ones from the top of the list.
I may have interpreted that wrong tho.
i tried to reply to your PM, but you cant accept any.

One year ago, you had the opportunity to be put on a waiting list for all bases, or for 1 base in particular. You need to speak at least conversational German to receive a start date. I believe you need to pay for the German course but im not 100% sure about that.

PM was full for some reason.
Anyway, the german wouldn't be a problem for me, as I am german. Do you by any chance have a rough figure of how long the wait is for german speakers?

How is the situation for non-German speaker actually ?
reading this thread nothing before December / January, I heard some mates of mine and the info looks reliable, does anybody have some further news ?

I think if you speak German you have a big advantage

The situation for non-German speaker in EW Europe is absolutely fine.
It is a different story for EW Germany, candidates should speak German at a level (may be B1 but not sure at all) but EW Germany is off-topic here

Ok, good to know. Shouldn't be better for German speaker, due to the majority of hubs in german ?
I think we can only obtain PMI from eurowings europe, so wothout much choice.

I was asking this because I imagine it should be easier to spread pilots around the 8 german bases, compared to a single hub in PMI and 2 in Austria.

Thanks Cavok. Would you advise brushing up on any other areas of math? I.e. did trigonometry / rules of three come up?

I'm also not sure how much physics to learn. Skytest (which I know you feel is overkill) seems to have a lot of areas in the physics section that wasn't mentioned on the EFA site (waves, maths, optics, magnetism, electricity, mechanics). There have been a few posts where people talk about their success at BQ, and they don't talk about physics at all.

Could anyone offer any guidance here? which areas of physics do we need to learn? Will we be asked to do complex calculations as well - i.e. use Bernoulli's Equation or Ideal Gas equations for the fluid and thermo dynamic sections? Or is it sufficient just to know the principles?

Any help would be really appreciated!

Thanks,
RC

Be fit with addition, subtraction of 4 digit numbers, squaring/power of three and roots of 3 digit numbers, percentages, fractions, and multpilying 3 digit numbers. The numbers flash on the screen and you have to remember them as well as the operation (+,-, *, / etc). It starts with easy with 2 digit numbers with multiple operations, and ends with more complicated numbers/actions. Also, there is a time limit to deal with Please note that I am currently doing a DLR prep and my memory may not be 100%. As I have previously posted, be fit with the example tests they provide. Some links that help(ed) me: Practice mental arithmetic http://burningmath.********.com/2013/09/extracting-square-roots-mentally-at.html

What about the Aviation Proficiency Test ? Is it tricky? About which subjects are they asking for? where should we start going over?

BTW, anyone is taking the test the 5th of August?

I did the direct entry exams and I don't think there were any questions like that. Or there were and they were so easy, I already forgot them. Or if you mean the joystick, push button test, it was actually kind of fun, video-game-like.

I was on the tests last week. And I can say if you use skytest for exercise you are on a good way to pass. Some test are the same. I has some problems with ATPL part and Mathematics, but the rest was ok. At the end they told you if you have passed or not, and they also told you where were you ok and where not. They told me that at Math and the part with weights were a little bit bad but everything else was ok. It is not important to be the best at everything, it is important to be ok at all parts. I learned ATPL from Aviationexam, from 5% of base questions that are opened if you have not payed.
There is enough time for everything, expect for my Mathematics
I am looking forward for the next part.
The only problem is that you have to come to Hamburg more often. The best way would be to have everything in three days.

Best of luck to all who have to go through the first part.

I did the BQ last week, all I can tell is. You need to buy Skytest, I didn't and I failed miserably. Tbf I think even if I had bought I would still have failed, the test is extremely difficult, specially the mental maths part. From the 20ish people who did the test with me about 4 passed. I am still recovering from the shock. It feels like they want astronauts rather than pilots. Don't get me wrong, I think they are right in filtering as much as they can as the surplus of pilot is huge now.

Which ATPL subjects where they asking more questions? which should I revise?

There were 60 questions, approx 5 from each field. I know there were questions from Air Law, performance, principles of flight, systems, meteo, navigation.
Some questions:
Balanced take off, what is v1, when is rwy contaminated, what happens with v1 when rwy is flooded, how is fuel measured when filling the tanks, where does the CP move if you increase AofA, climbing with constant TAS, CAS..., from what FL is the possibility if icing in CB, correct position report in IFR, what is 7700, compass error...

The time is a bit tricky because it seems 45min is enough but if you will be nervous like me it can get a little hot at the end

Best of luck!

I would like to share my sad experience in EW selection:

First of all i didn't get it, unfortunately, and the most frustrating thing is that I passed every step except the last one: the CQ.
Guys, this is the toughest conversation I really had in my life. They are doing non-sense questions (of course, there might be a reason if they ask those), and despite you are going there enthisastic and prepared to talk about yourself, etc. , they try to push you hard in only talking about negative things about your life or yourself.
For example: you why did you take longer for taking your degree (that is absolutely not a requirement), why did you quit this job , are you really sure to become a pilot, etc.
Maybe they are going to test your resilience, and see how you react.
Anyway the interview was too much focused in depth about my background (they might not have like it), and nothing concerning aviation related questions.
Apparently this is the toughest phase despite the BQ and the Sim.
I wish you best luck

How is the simulator.
What do you need to know? Are they strict at screening?
Is there any way to get ready for it?

How about the Physics questions in the BQ? Are they difficult? How many of them can we expect in the test?
