@pooja25 they have not specified anywhere that current ir is a must.
Hey thanks for the prompt reply but they have mentioned in website that valid and current cpl,frtol,IR/LR.
So my query is do we need just IR rating on cpl or current ir.
Thanks in advance

spatial awareness, multitasking, mental math, short term memory, basic cpl theory questions.

and in the last advance flight control. stick n rudder and maintaining airspeed . that's it. hope this helps

Jet does not need valid IR ( even though the ad says otherwise ) . The ad has been the exact same since 2011 and has no changes to it .

If you read this PPRuNe thread from the beginning you can see that this has been discussed for TFO 2011 , 2013 and 2014. The ad always says valid IR but Jet has never required your IR to be valid ( no airline in India does unless maybe its a type rated vacancy )

@flexiflyer

You will need to download and install the Joybridge Air application . I believe you can download it here

Using Joystick-Latest Pilot Jobs

It might ask you to install Adobe AIR software


For everyone else , All rounds will take place in Mumbai itself irrespective of the location you chose for interview . The TFO application is an old one and the exact same they have been using for the last few years.

What is this joybridge Air application and how can I use my joystick for practicing the same? Is it going to be something like PABT test of the IAF ? The PABT test is actually very easy and I have passed it in 4AFSB Varanasi during my SSB. It checks your hand eye coordination and how quick your reflex is. The trick is that the sensitivity of the controls keeps varying all the time.

Can somebody please suggest that if you had a week of time to prepare for the TFO exam, what subjects and books would you focus on, related to CPL theory subjects ?

People have suggested Principles of flight, Airframes and Systems and Powerplant of Oxford. What else?

Thanks

Cool off peiod for TFO 2014 Batch

Hi,
Can someone please confirm if there is any cool off period for applicants who failed Interview or any other stages in TFO 2014 Batch.
I've heard HR Confirmed there is no cool off period, one has to apply fresh.
But then I also heard, there were few people who were denied to appeared for the comprehensive test on the day of exam, saying there is a cool off period for 3 months.

no need to practice with stick n rudder for the complex task control, instead pay attention on the compass test and cpl theory

What's happening?

Hi everyone. I don't understand what's going on. I had applied for the TFO vacancy (both online and by emailing my resume) as soon as it was out. Jet took an exam on 15th may and I din't get a call.
I want to know if Jet is calling only selective candidates?
Secondly it is mentioned that that last date to apply is 15th may. So how did they take an exam on that day itself?

Will appreciate if someone can shed some light on this. Thanks.

Don't worry guys you will get to write the exam, next batch's comprehensive test starts this saturday followed by other tests.
70 odd were called for the exam last week, some type rated directly appeared for the interviews yesterday, heard that type rated ppl will also have to appear for the comprehensive & psychometric test once they clear their interviews.
they probably will b sending first batch for TR in june guess
