Hello, how long did you wait after the video interview to proceed to the next step?

Did you do it in Brazil or in Dubai ? Are they planning on going to Brazil again to assess candidates ?

I went to Dubai last month to do the simulator, medical exam and psychometric tests (with interview). they announced assessment in Brazil next month, but I'm not sure. I'm in the holding pool.

At the minimus you have to go around, during go around I had an engine failure, do the check list until one eng inoperative landing. Now you can use the auto pilot and will be vectored for rnav 33R. Very quick briefings.
Thank you. Appreciate your reply. Best of luck!
Just one more question. Go around and engine failure still without Flight Directors?

Keep you chins up everyone

Have you finally started with FZ or are you in the holding pool? I interviewed in March and went through the same bmi issues as you and got successful and thrown into the pool but have now been told that they are no NTR courses this year so expect start date to be next year.

during the final approach, the assessor will tell you to turn on the FD, so, during the go around you have FD available.

Hey CPTMAN

Sorry to hear about the BMI issues. But in the end I am happy it happened, I am now the fittest and most lean I have been in 15 years, shook off 22kg, so not a bad thing.

Ja, I am still swimming around the pool. Had the same answer as you. No NTR's this year and no promises on next year either. We'll have to wait and see.

Thank you.
I just came back from the assessment. The simulator was exactly as you said.
We were 6 guys, we passed simulator only two, and the next day the other guy failed his face to face interview.
I passed, did the medical and now waiting for the results.
I liked the assessment, everyone was friendly and respectful.
Best of luck to everyone!

Those that were successful were in all cases however, NOT informed quickly, it always took several weeks.

I heard they inform the successful candidate in a couple of days and for the unsuccessful candidate it takes few weeks. Any one has some information about this? Thank you
Hey man,
I am in the same position. Two weeks and no results. How long did you wait? And successfully or not?
Thank you.

There are lots of rumours flying around but I believe they are probably going to make an announcement at the Dubai airshow in a couple of weeks.

That's awesome! I also had the exact same experience. Finally dropped 20kg after like 8 years of trying so it was a blessing in disguise. FZ reached out again like a month and half ago asking for references and when I asked about dates again they said no NTR courses for this year. Let's see what happens next year and also after this airshow.
