Hi fellows,

Does anyone of you who did the Basic Testing in English, why there is no ENG version of the tests on the Coaching Portal website.
I received the following link Index of /coaching/Coaching-Portal/EWG, but I am just wondering why are all tests only found in German.

Any ideas?

Thank you!

Try removing the G at the end. There's a subfolder 'english' where you can find everything in a zip file. For whatever reason, they're using a slightly different selection of CBTs for english speaking applicants. While PPT is missing there, they included VLR and RAG instead.

The quickest answer would be that you are invited by/ applied for EWG. This is Eurowings Germany. You are on the Eurowings Europe forum (Austria)

Hey here,

I have my test in July and i'm practising everyday after work. I really need and want to succeed it.

Does anyone knows the amount of pilot they are inviting for this test and what is the percentage of success.

It's not my last chance but maybe one of them as I finish my training 7 years ago, I really want to secure this test and have an interview after it.

Hi,

its quite hard to tell how many they are inviting, but I would guess its somewhere around 300 in total per year as they are in need for ~30 pilots per year.

Passrate of the first stage is a little bit varying but overall between 35-40% I guess.

Second stage is the simulator screening. Passrate is approx 60-70%.

Third stage is the psychological Assesment, where you have 30-45% passrate.

Last stage is the interview where you have 40-50% passrate.

Overall it is the standard Lufthansa selection with a total passrate below 10%.

All passrates and the crew demaned are just a rough estimated. It is also possible that they will take everyone at a stage on one day and no one on another.

There are 2 really important tasks for the first stage: 1) practise everythin as much as possible at home 2) keep calm and totaly focused on the day.

Good luck.

Regarding phase 2 (SIM): I got the news, probably not during the summer. No Sim slots available.

Regarding phase 1 (BASIC TESTING): Around 90% failed during my testdate...

yeah, they probably need experienced pilots now that can start flying immediately this summer.

I guess the only thing we can do now is to wait, and hope for the best

First stage - Basic Testing

Hey guys,

I have been invited for the First Stage of the Eurowings assessments, Basic Testing.

I have no idea what would be expected for this so any tips would be greatly appreciated! I would really appreciate an overview of what I should expect, and any insider news on the assessment process.

If anyone has been through the Eurowings assessment process recently, please DM me! I'd love to get in touch.

Hey SkiingPilot,

nice to hear you got invited for the GU (Basic Testing).

This is the well known DLR (German Psychometric Test on the highest possible standard). If you read this entire Thread except for the whining part on the first couple of pages (like every PPRuNe thread), you'll get a good impression.

From my point of view there is nothing more to learn in this stage.
Also via your career.aero login -> downloads, you should find enough info regarding all the stages.

Good luck on your Prep!

Thanks Inverted21

Yeah seems like quite a difficult process they put you through and the success rates seem very very low, but of course a chance is a chance and anyone with an invitation should take it with excitement. What would be the best way to prepare for this first stage?
Also, do you know how long after the Basic Testing stage comes the next stage of the interview process? (Might be getting a little too ahead of myself haha)

Thanks once again.

Hi all

I have been invited to the DLR test beginning of July (GU) and I am a bit confused.

I use the CBT software to prepare myself and the included modules I got are:
SKT, OWT, RMS, VMC, ROT, PPT, ENS and KRN.

Reading through this thread it seems that they also test VLR and RAG on the day? I have no preparation software for these tests.
I doubt they change the test-modules from batch to batch, no?

Hi everyone

I have been invited to the DLR test beginning of July but I am a bit confused.

I will have to do the GU test and have received a link with all the training modules to download.

The following modules were sent to me:

SKT, OWT, RMS, VMC, ROT, PPT, ENS and KRN

According to people just a few posts above, they also had to complete a RAG and a VLR test. I haven't received any training software for these tests. Also they are not listed on my protocol sheet.

Have they changed anything or have they forgotten to send me stuff?

Thanks

What are people using to prepare for the Eurowings assessment?

I use the CBT (software provided by the DLR).

There is something called Skytest which costs about 80 Euros. It covers the same tests apparently.
Some people say it is worth it, some say it isn't.

I see how I get along with the CBT tests. If I feel it doesn't get me where I need to be I might take a look at skytest.

Some of these tests are ridiculously difficult like RMS or VMC, others are actually not too bad and I strangely enjoy them ( ROT, SKT, OWT).

I keep a record of every attempt with my percentages so I can track my progress. The most frustrating bit is when you reach 90+ percent on level 1 and then start training on level 2 and drop down to 70 or something. To pass the selection level 3 is what is expected apparently.

Good luck

Wow thank you for the detailed answer. I actually didn't know they give you a preparation pack...maybe it's too early, I've been scheduled for August.
Right, so prep prep prep, practice practice practice!

Thank you!

Usually you will get a link to the prep software with your invitation (at least I did).

Once you do, start straight away. These tests are designed to see how much time you are willing to spend preparing yourself.

At the beginning there will be a lot of frustration, but don't let that deter you. After a while things will get better.

To give you one example:
There is a test where a voice says a sequence or random numbers ( 8, 3, 2, 9, 4, ...). At some point the voice will stop, but you don't know when.
Your task is to write down the last 6 (or so) digits, but in reverse order!

The first time I tried my brain was stumbling about and after the test I didn't know if I should be crying or laughing (I went for laughing).

After a few days I am getting pretty good at it. My record so far has been recalling 8 numbers.

So practice, practice, practice.

By the way, which bases did they offer you and which one did you choose as your nbr1?

Okay I understand I'll try and find that link then!
I haven't been offered a base or anything as of yet. I think I'm probably still in the early stages. I'm not sure!
