Just think it this way: the GYRO shows the aircraft is flying South, so you choose the aircraft pointing down. Then the RBI shows the non directional beacon (the centre) is at SE, which basically means it is behind (South) and on the right (East) of the aircraft. The correct position is therefore position number 4.

Other example: GYRO says North and RBI says North West. You select the aircraft pointing up North, then the RBI saying NW tells you that the non directional beacon is above (North) and on the left (West) of the aircraft. Therefore the correct position is the number 4.

The explanation is certainly not one of the bests and can be confusing but hopefully this helps you.
Very methodological and exactly the same approach I used to answer those questions. Good advice here!

That make so much more sense than their explanation. I think given my rush to finish the tests before my holiday I may have done it completely wrong.

because people reported it on these forums that the system crashed. An extension has been provided to people that were unable to complete tests on Sunday evening.

Video Interview Assistance

I have managed to complete all of the assessment on time apart from the video interview section which I am experiencing technical issues with. I am able to record my example answers perfectly fine, camera and microphone working, playback working etc. The 'upload' example is also working fine, however when I move on to record my actual interview questions all I get is a blank screen.

I have sent various emails to cut-e over the past two days trying to resolve the issue but to no avail. I have tried everything I can think of. All my cookies and browsing history have been reset, my chrome and flash player are up-to-date and security settings on medium.

I realise this is 'last chance saloon' but any techies or IT whizz on here that can assist would be greatly appreciated - deadline is midnight.

Thanks

Lads and Ladies,

Hope you’re all not stressing too much, you’ve all finished the exams and they’re out of your hands now so nothing to panic over...

just out out of curiosity, is there any of you applying for the Aer Lingus programme who aren’t from Ireland and therefore would be relocating if they got the job?

By curiosity, I have done a small search via LinkedIn to estimate what is the probability of a non-Irish candidate to get a final offer for this programme.
I came up with an estimated value of less than 3%, meaning that almost all the cadets are Irish, or seeing with another perspective, a non-Irish would be hired every two programmes.
I completely understand this trend since Aer Lingus is a flag company, indicating that they prefer to give priority to their nationals.
My final conclusion is that, if you are not Irish, then you must have an incredible CV, much probably with aviation related highlights, and be, let's say, in the top 5 of all applicants.
I hope all my numbers and conclusions are completely wrong!! AHah
Have you ever thought about this? If yes, what is your opinion on the subject?

I have tried both Chrome and Firefox. The only thing I can think of is that there was some issue with my internet connection or some kind of privacy setting which is blocking it.

Hello Mask14, I am really curious to know how did you arrive to that 40% number.
I hope is more representative than my estimation
Thanks

However, I believe the best and most suitable candidates will be selected, even if they’re not Irish.
Good luck everyone.
I think this is a fair assessment. There's no point in giving up before the race has even started, just focus on doing your best and remain positive. Worrying about the company's own selection criteria is of no use, especially when it's something like what nationality you are - you cannot change that. I wish every applicant the very best of luck in this programme!

Does anyone know when applicants can expect an indication of how the second assessment went?

How many people get in?

Does anyone actually know how many people get accepted to do the course?

I doubt you'll hear anything for maybe 2 - 3 weeks...perhaps longer. I would imagine the workload is high judging by the volume of applicants. I'm not holding my breath as i feel my interview answers were way below par. All the best to everyone else.

Hi Chilly, did you hear a number of how many applicants there were? Or guessing by the amount of interest on here?

Also the job I am in now (non aviation) used cut-e and as far as I remember the successful ones are all told first and then the unsuccessfuls are told about 2 weeks after because of dropouts etc no one is ruled out completely.

There was however up to about six weeks between stages. I don't know if the same will apply for this campaign?
