SunExpress Mollymawk test.

I got invited for this test in 2 weeks in Antalya.

I succeed the DLR in July but unfortunately they don't accept it.

I am hesitant about it as they ask you to pay a training package (?€, on mollymawk website) which is mandatory plus 40€/ night hotel room ( 2 nights ) plus my train to Duesseldorf (around 120€) to take a SunExpress free flight.

It might sounds cheap but I am very short in money (one kid and wife) and all combined I am not sure it worth it.

I have 30hours left to give my answer if I am going or not.

Any comment on te airline, the selection process, how many people are invited, etcetera that could help me taking my decision.

Big thanks !

Hi Mlambin,

I would say give it a shot why not? You do not have anything to lose especially if this will or might be your first lucky chance of actually landing that first flying job.

By the way what sort of qualifications do you have and how did you applied for SunExpress? Was that through Interpersonal? Do you have a type rating on the Boeing 737?

Thank you!

I don't remember how I applied because I did it long time ago and I don't hold any ratings.

If I'm not mistaken they recently opened the FO to foreigners and so on they contacted me.

I'm scared of seeing 200 pilots there and spending more money in this.

Hi Mlambin,

I guess you got invited then for the SXS? Not SXD?
If that is the case, then yes it should be Mollymawk.

I was at SXD Assessment. There were like 12 people. So I think for the Turkish Sunexpress will be the same, but you should take this chance. It is a good Airline to start your career. There will be always someone who could lend you this money somehow. Work hard to pass the assessment. If you pass, then you have a good job on an good Aircraft. Dont throw away this chance. No matter what, you should go for it.

You never know when you get another chance with just your F ATPL and 200 hrs.

I got a PFO reply but just for future reference, any tips for preparing for the Mallymawk? Any CBT like SkyTest?

Little update !

It's 300€ the package necessary to practice the test before going to the real one. They clearly making money on us. I am upset about the prices.

Nevertheless I will take my chance and work as much as possible to succeed this test battery !

Hi all, I also have a molly mawk test at the end of the month. Could anyone who has taken them before give an idea if it's the same style as most other testings; basic maths, unit conversions, percentages, fractions. English? Science is basic Physics?

You will see what it is when practicing on the website. From what I understood it is very similar to that.

I applied for SXS back in September and got a PFO mail, the reason was they werent recruiting foreigners at the moment. Perhaps its time to send another application?

Hi! Does Sunexpress require you to do the mollymawk test with 500+ hours on type?

I would say most probably yes.

I succeed all the steps between January and February (mollymawk,SIM and interview) and I'm Belgian.

Now I am waiting for further news for almost 2 months. Not so easy to wait.

I'm still waiting ! Being honest I don't expect to be called before the end of summer and I'm ready to wait longer ;-)

The process was fine. Not stressful because the dates have around 2weeks between each others.

I'm working ahead of the TR.
