Normally when you fill in your application form they ask you where you want to be based.
The job offer usually comes with restrictions in terms of bases you can apply for (wherever they need pilots at that time).

I was able to choose between Vienna, Salzburg and Palma de Majorca.

Interesting bases all of them.

VIE SZG PMI are all the bases they have right now.

Did they say anything about future bases?

No, not for the moment.

Looks like VIE will be the biggest base. SZG will only get one aircraft for now. I am not sure how many planes will go to PMI.

I made PMI my first choice. Who knows, if the unthinkable happens and I somehow manage to get through all of this they might, just might allow me to live there.

They didnt ask for my base preference.

Does anyone know the passrate for the DLR, some tests are REALLY difficult especially on level 3 and do you have to speak fluent german to succeed the selection for eurowings europe?

When I filled in the online application (you know, the work history and flying hours document) on the last page I was asked which base I would prefer.
I had to rank them in order (there were three drop-down menus). I was given VIE, SZG and PMI.

I filled them in rather randomly and wrote to interpersonal that i would be happy living in any of those places. Not sure if they pass such information on to EW.

I guess the question of base will come up right at the end at the HR interview. Still a long road until then

Regarding pass-rate: No one knows for sure, but it seems about 90% - 95% fail the initial DLR test. The sim weeds out another 60% - 70%. I am not sure about the interview.

Chances are slim, but it is a chance and I will embrace it

Good luck to everyone.

Have a look at some older posts, there is a detailed pass rate listing.

Is here anyone who already passed the assessment? How long is the time between last stage and start date? What bases are offered? Will there be also bases in germany? Where will the rating take place?

Thanks for any info.

Don't know about others but here is my background:

I applied a few weeks ago and got the invitation last week. I have an (f)ATPL with 350 odd hours total. I have spent the last few years working in pilot training operating Level-D sims and as stand-in pilot (737/747).

I live in the UK but I am originally from Austria (ICAO engl 6 / German fluent) and I am probably one of the oldest applicants (41).

I am currently preparing for the DLR-GU test which is tough going.

Hope this helps.

Anyone else doing their DLR test in July?

I have my DLR on the 20st of July.

Background: Finish school in 2010 and no jobs yet (I didn't really apply for few years because I lost faith but I am fully back on track now). 272h TT working in the hospitality in Brussels.

I got invited in February.

I have to go to Hamburg in July as well.

Does anyone have more information about a possible starting date for one of the 3 bases?

@Mlambin & mdeleven: do you speak german?

No starting date yet, but summer is a busy period so I would guess it won't be until autumn before they start training the new guys. Most airlines don't have the capacity during the busy summer months.

Yes, I speak German. It is my mother tongue.

I don't speak German but I have bases. I am on a self-learning process. Not an easy language!

Tests for ready entries are
ATPL,MIC,OWT,PPT,RMS,ROT,SKT,VMC,Maths (apparently they are all acoustic), English and a psychological profiling test.

I don't know how many ATPL questions there are, but you are expected to do some maths; fuel flow, climb rate, scales, ISA deviation etc.
Then a lot of questions regarding air law, procedures (CAT1,2 approaches) and met questions.

Hope this helps.

I am also hoping to hear that someone got invited for the second round. This waiting seems to take forever, but hopefully it will all be worth it at the end.

Can anyone confirm the Cpt salary is 3200 net ?

If so, what an insult for the profession.

And you need to pass an astronaut assessment for this kind of

The guys in the mngt need a brain inspection !
