Sim

Do you think it is advisable to book a sim session on an A320 before going to the assessment? Do they expect you to have done this?
I have only ever flown a Boeing in the sim. I was wondering how easy it will be to adapt.

Is it true that you can't really change the speed using the thrust levers like in a Boeing? And that you have to use the speed window and pitch to do so instead?

Thanks

If I had an assessment on the Airbus I would book a sim session. The systems onboard compensate for secondary effects and at first, you might overcontrol.
And that is not true. You can control thrust manually with the thrust levers out of the detent.

Your assessment may not be in the airbus sim. It’s possible to be in a generic jet sim. Will depends on sim availability.

Either way, I’d always advocate having a practice run before any sim assessment

Does anyone have any good feedback who has already attended, or used something along the lines of latestpilotjobs interview prep? There doesn't appear to be an Aer Lingus interview prep on latestpilotjobs database from what i can see.

Thanks in advance

I appreciate that people are being called to the next stage of the assessment but has anyone received a ‘thanks but no thank you’ email?

Only about 25% of the assessment centre invitations have gone out so far.

Shamrocky, you obviously have the inside scoop here. Can new recruits expect to be on / able to bit for the LR flights to the East Coast straight away, or will be there be a waiting period?

All new pilots spend 6 months restricted to certain operations etc. Following this time there is week of probationary checks and after this all restrctions including flying Transatlantic are lifted.

You actually have not got a clue what you're talking about. As someone who was at the assessment only yesterday, Karl from Aer Lingus specifically mentioned about the 6 months restriction on european ops before any transatlantic. After 6 months, as he put it in his words, "the restriction is lifted and you are open to fly all our routes, including transatlantic"

With all due respect MightyDucks, this is not rubbish.
When the NEO arrives, Restricted RF Pilots will not be able to fly the NEO across the Atlantic until their RF is lifted following New Pilot Assessments.

Has anyone that attended the Recruitment Day two weeks ago, that submitted a 'Speculative Application', NOT received an invite for assessment yet?
