Aer Lingus DEP 2019

From the EI website.
Only open for two weeks.
Good luck to all.

Over 100 pilot positions available as we expand with new aircraft and routes.

We’ve launched our latest pilot recruitment drive, with over 100 direct entry pilot positions available. Positions are open to qualified pilots, who, if successful, will join our flight team for an exciting and rewarding career, flying our modern aircraft, such as the Airbus A320/321 and A330, to over 80 destinations worldwide.

The pilot recruitment drive comes as we continue to expand, having recently announced our ambitious growth strategy that will see our North Atlantic fleet increase from 17 to 30 aircraft by 2023. The growth strategy will see significant investments in guest experience, brand, fleet, network expansion and our people.

Over the coming years, we’ll add the new Airbus A321neo long-range aircraft, giving successful pilots the opportunity to fly the longest-range, single-aisle aircraft in the world when introduced.

We already fly to over 80 destinations worldwide but is continuing to eye new opportunities across the Atlantic and within Europe. This will give successful candidates exciting travel opportunities.

We’ve a strong track record of supporting female pilots, employing twice as many compared with the international airline industry average. We are continuing to make a concerted effort to attract more female pilots and we encourage them to apply for a position to join our team.

Candidates should be highly motivated individuals who are committed to delivering our excellent service and who are tuned into the challenging commercial priorities faced by a value carrier in today’s highly competitive aviation sector.

Successful candidates will be offered a very competitive package, which includes an incremental starting salary and excellent benefits.

Our direct entry pilot application process is now open and will close on Friday, 28th December.

I just finished my application.
Who else is going?
Any ideas on time to upgrade to the wide body fleet?

I am currently based in Dublin, 3k hours on the airbus, 500 on the 737.


Good luck to all

Currently approx 2 years to be senior enough to bid for the A330 Long Haul but the NEOLR is coming during the Summer so Long Haul will be available to all.
Same process as last year I heard.

Hello Shamrocky.

This will be the first time I apply for Aer Lingus.
Any ideas where I could find any material?

Regarding the upgrade, 2 years doesn't look that bad, any idea on the upgrade time to captain position?

Anyone any ideas why the application window was extended? Insufficient uptake, or they suffered a technical glitch?

I wouldn't get too hung up on time to command or RHS 330. Its a veritable moveable feast at the moment with all of the recruitment and new aircraft coming online. A lucky few have seen the 330 RHS after just 2 years but the majority in the last while were 4-5 and the average before the "boom" was 6-8. Some people never saw the 330 before command came around.

7 years for command is stretching the truth it a bit. For next summer there are a handful of 330 copilots that would sneak in around that vintage that are going through the upgrade process at the moment or have recently passed the checks. There is something like 30 promotions planned for summer 2019 but the majority would be around the 10 year+ vintage.

Like all seniority based airlines its all about your date of joining.

I agree with MCDU2 but the A320 command positions next year include pilots that joined in 2012 so that brings it to 7 years ish

Can anybody confirm if they suffered a technical problem or something? When i applied back in December I got this message: due to technical difficulties we were unable to send you a confirmation email at this time. I checked my application status yesterday and it says application received, however, i never got the confirmation email. Thanks!

Online assessments.

Anyone received invite to complete online assements for the first stage of the process?
Many ideas what in entials? The email states about a personality questionnaire as part 1, but just says about assessments related to the role including a short video. I would assume a number of ATPL theory questions, but is there any info as to other assessments & the video?

Cheers

It's Cut-E tests and you probably have to do the tube test (you fly through some rotating openings in a tube) and you need a mouse for that.

Just some questions about yourself

Completed and sentSituational Behaviour
Just some questions about yourself

Completed and sent Verbal Reasoning (consumer compact)
You can find some examples here ( www. jobtestprep . co . uk/). It was the most difficult test for me.

Completed and sentReaction Speed
You will have 2 patterns on your left and right. When they both are identics, you need to press on your space bar

Completed and sentSpatial Orientation
Just need to find your position with a compas and RMI.

Completed and sentComplex Control

Hello guys.
Did the assessment yesterday .
First part 240 or so questions (psichological test)
Nothing special just some simple math and cut e test including NDB test , monitoring ability , reaction time .
Video questions.
Describe a situation when you used communications in your everyday life , and helped you . Describe when you felt keen and motivated as a pilot and why .
That's all i can remember . NO ATPL questions whatsoever .
Best of luck !

Hru,
you mind telling us what your experience is? Experience or low hours? Maybe there are ATPL type questions for low hours/non-commercial experience like the Ryr Cut-e tests?
Thanks
