More details on air astana

Thanks so much sir for the update...
I I know I'm asking a lot but can you please throw some light and give me a detailed explanation if I may ask about Landing the first time in air astana for my sim assessment up to getting line released presently I am a senior first officer on the Airbus A320 I have 4000 flying hours and on type I have 2,000
Apologies if I have asked too much from you but your kind words will definitely help me in preparing myself mentally it will give me a broader picture

However, if you are intent on applying despite this... The sim accessment itself is pretty straight forward. Engine failure at V1, One engine approach. Some dual engine manoeuvres like steep turns. Not difficult.
They'll ask you some pretty deep systems questions in the pre brief. Essentially go through the flight manual of your type and memorise ANY and ALL numbers. Not just limits and memory items. They'll ask numbers like HYD temps and pressures etc.
This study technique is also what will be required to pass their recurrent sim checks once you're in.
Oh, and this is for type rated, is non type rated, I know it's different but not sure the process.
PM me if you want more info.

Hello guys,
does anyone have a rough idea of what kind of conditions they offer now? I heard it's local contract only at the moment.
Thanks!

Hi Jadrolinija, im guessing you fly for air astana. Do the pilots cross operates between Air Astana and their low cost Flyarystan?
