No need for apologies, feel free to ask any questions related to this

Yes, it can be deceptive because of how very sensitive the joystick is. I would recommend using a flight simulator with a joystick so you can become a bit confident using a joystick.

For the tests, follow the instructions and you'll have a chance to practice with their joystick.

Thank you Ciaran and and Gary!

Thank you very much for the response. In terms of the other parts of the aptitude testing, were they things that you had previously practiced?

Massive congratulations on getting through to day 2!

Does anyone have recommendations for pre-reading before starting ground school?

Thank you very much

Never having done an aptitude test, I used SkyTest to become familiar with the test as I hate not preparing for important tests. I wouldn't recommend practising too much on SkyTest as they are similar looking yet work differently so you don't want to get too comfortable with it - basically, expect differences in SkyTest and Pilapt.

I do highly recommend looking at many different cadet blogs for their experiences with Pilapt and that might build up a picture of what to expect better and perhaps some good tips to take note of - research is essential I say.

I also recommend using a flight simulator with a joystick. This may help with flying through the boxes and deviation indicator.

I got offered route 3 earlier with L3. Wanted route 1/2 but still happy. Is route 3 still a guaranteed job at the end of training with easyJet if the course goes well?

Well done to everyone recently passing assessments and receiving offers

Earlier in this thread I was informed the initial application consists of open-ended questions requiring university personal statement style answers. Upon opening an application with CAE I cannot see any questions of this sort? Is it just a CV upload along with answering the tick box general questions? Thanks

@Hpinder787 route 3 is the easyJet tagged ATPL so you’re still given the conditional job offer if you pass training. Route 3 shouldn’t be seen as a negative, you’re still getting an ATPL and a first officer position, congrats!

My apologies, I said that in line with L3' application process.

That’s fine, I appreciate your help! I figured they would of been similar but it appears not. Has anyone here applied with CAE?

Cheers mate. I was a few weeks after that so I'll likely have to wait a little longer

Day 2 interview

Hi All,

Anyone have attended day two and can share what sort of questions were they asked during the interview. Also, how many question we can expect to be asked? I know its roughly half an hour interview.

Cheers.
