Question European Flight Academy Selection

Hi all. I am gonna participate in the Basic Qualification (BQ) of the EFA soon. And part of this BQ you have to do several tests on some topics. My question is if anyone could give me any tips (e.g. on how to prepare), especially for physics-related questions. Many thanks!

You will find a fair amount of stuff on the Eurowings FO thread in interview and jobs (Eurowings Europe F/O)

The practice they provide are pretty useful and I think people say SkyTest is worth it. BBC bitesize physics could be helpful if you’re worried about that in particular.

I did not not went through all the 35 pages but from what I read The Eurowings Europe F/O concerns mostly qualified pilots.

Personally, I was invited for the BQ test for the ATPL program.

I'm 31, I have no blonde hair nor I speak german.

Why in the world they have invited me?

I have no problems to prepare to maximize my chances to pass, but should I?

I'm afraid I'd be naive to believe that I stand a chance among zilions of 20 something german applicants. Even if I perform better than them.

Job or no job in the end, It is a superb opportunity considering the possibility of pre-financing. That's why I applied.

I just don't know If I would waste my time to prepare when in reality I am already doomed because of aspects that do not depend on meritocracy.

Is there anyone who has been there? I mean non-german speaker.

There are a fair bit of Non German Speakers from all over Europe in the ATPL Courses, so not being able to speak German is not a problem

Actually worth flagging that for English only speakers the language requirements have now changed. You are expected to be able to speak one of German, Italian, French or Dutch to a B2 standard by the end of training.
