Not true. Support sim are not graded. But if you grossly misbehave or extremely under perform in a way that the examiner believes you are not safe on the line, he has to take action and inform training management.

If he has to do that then its graded, no matter how you try to explain it.
At Ek if you're in the sim, you're under scrutiny!
So you'd rather have someone knowingly badly under performing flying the line rather than being trained to expected standard... Not me!

Trained????? You have been suppin’ too much company Kool Aid.

A day helping out in the sim should never be graded. There are more than enough regulatory checks to prove your competence in this business.

Unsafe operators, should have been found out during the hiring sim or initial training.
A major fault of this airline is too much checking and not enough training.

will keep that in mind next time I hear you whinging that the standard is low, or that you only get monkeys applying because they pay peanuts. Or that the next incident is a result of the training department.

Every airline I know has the same policy. Support or Stand In SIM, Performance is not graded. Incompetence is not tolerated.

i stand corrected, support are not technically graded. But can be reported if incompetence were reflected during the sim. I remember OGS are still submitted for the Support pilot.
