Snotneus,

It doesn't matter whether you live in the USA or not to apply through CRew (HACS). What I can tell you is that once ANA rejects an application, it makes no difference applying through another leasing company, unless you missed to provide accurate and important information in your first application (flight times, aeronautical form, etc) that PARC didn't catch on time before submitting it, however, I boubt it becasue they have very competent people reviewing applications before submitting them to the J's. Try CRew anyways you never know, however I can tell you that I have a lot of buddies from JAL that reapply after their application were rejected with the same results. NO THANKS!

Good luck anyways.

Luahh

i think that one dot off on the glide slop at a DH of 200' is 8' off. one dot on the CDI at 200' DH is 150'. Here is the info that I found.

ILS Basics

G'day Hoover1,

Whereas that guide to the ILS is useful, I don't think it is specific enough for the question asked. "Near the middle marker you're about 150' off the LOC" is close to what was asked but not really that accurate. It will, of course, change depending on the length of the runway, hence my qualification that my calcs were based on a 3000m long runway and, therefore, a LOC beam width of 3.6 degs. The only constant is the beam width will be 700' wide at the touchdown threshold, so shorter runway, wider beam.

The question referred to discusses only the distance from the centreline, not the glideslope. However, that's always easier to work out because (a)the beam width is constant at 1.4 degs (one dot being 0.35 degs) and (b)the glideslope antenna is, basically, at the threshold so you don't have to account for runway length and distance beyond the stop end of the LOC antenna. I know the glideslope crosses the threshold at 50' but was being simplistic to make the point about easier calculations.

Anyway, by now the Japanese interviewers would be snoring in their coffees and would have ticked the 'boring barsteward' box. They are only interested in basic technical stuff and I cannot believe anyone got asked this in an interview. This is the type of question JCAB would ask on the ATPL oral. They, unlike the good people of AJV, are nerdy geeks who need to get out more

I agree with the answer being a bit too technical that is why I only remember it this way. I was asked at what speed the plane I currently fly, b737, will hydroplane at. I told them I didn't know the speed since it was dependent on tire preassure and told them the formula to figure it out. they seemed to bo okay with that answer. I don't know what the tire pressure is because I don't have to at my current company that is why we have mechanics although I am sure I am about to find out everything there is about the planes ANA flys.

On another note: has anyone who interviewed in early July heard back on a class date or if they even passed the medical?

The only exams you'll write in the AJX/AJV system are Air Law, Radio and Type technical. ANA provide comprehensive ground school for them, so no need to find the info yourself.

There are 2 sim rides, type rating (if not already type rated) and ATPL, both with JCAB checker in the sim. Once again ANA provides full preparation and support.

thanks to all for the info. just read all 43 pages.

all that talk about uncorrected vision requirements is kinda unnerving when you are looking at a computer screen for 6 hours.

therefore i understand people coming on and re-posting similar questions because who has time to read all that. that said, let me jokingly post a few questions:

1. how many consecutive days off do you get? is it different on AJV?

2. can i avoid paying taxes?



just having a little fun there. i think i read this 10 days / 11 days matter discussed approximately 150 times. but it's all good.

dominican, love the positivity.

The medical causes quite a bit of anxiety because it is the only part of the interview that we just can't control, you are just going along for a ride.

2. can i avoid paying taxes?
Yeah, after you die

just having a little fun there. i think i read this 10 days / 11 days matter discussed approximately 150 times. but it's all good.
It gets a little testy some times because folks don't take the time to do what you did, actually read the thread. There is a lot of good info on this gig already contained within this thread if people just take the time to read it but hey! just ask the question and one of two things can happen, you will get an answer or you will get bitten by one of the dawgs!

HI all!

Just a quick question:

Does anybody know if is mandatory to be current (I`m 767 rated) for starting the course in japan?

Checking the agency website on the requirements doesn`t seem to be necessary current.

Thanks

Do you mean current on the 767 or in current flying practice?

If you're asking about the 767, then no, you do not have to be current on type to do the 'short' course. Lots of guys have flown different types since getting their 757/767 ratings but they still do the type-rated course. If it's on your licence you get out of HND early for good behaviour.

Current flying? I don't know the answer to that one since everybody who's applying at the moment seems to be pretty well qualified and up-to-date with their tests. That's not to say you can't apply; I just haven't heard of anyone who isn't current joining the Company.

If I remember correctly, one of the requirements is to have had a sim recurrent within the past six months. So up to date on the A/C you are currently flying but not necessarily on the 76 since you don't actually need to be typed on the 76 to apply

That's correct! In fact my question was about having on the licence the 767 endorsed but not beeing current.

Thanks

Poita,

What is there to confirm , Divine Wind is definately in the know!, open your eyes and follow the news...yes its possible even from ButtF.ck Kalamzoo to to find this news. Economy in Japan is very poor this days, and the jobs will ALWAYS go to Japanese pilots F I R S T and foremost. Actually the Japanese cleaning lady at ANA that scrubs the urinals, would have a higher status than you as a gaijin. I know allot of gaijin crewmebmers at ANA think all is hunky dory....but time will show, I don`t wish any bad on any gaijin crewmember, but I like to keep it real.

Just my two cents!!.....
