@ nildesperandum

I have the same problem. I applied in oct but was no able to attend the selection because i was on the road. So i contacted them to say this. Shortly afterwards i got an email ' thx but no tx.....'. I see that my application is still in there and can not update it. I think you have to withdraw it and then apply again.

Yes i do.
I don't see any other way to update your cv.
I send them an email about this issue, but no comment so far.

I'm told there is a substantial link for this but like you, i'm struggling to find it. So much to trawl through.

I'm willing to accept the obligatory abuse from a bitter wannabe/former employee for a quick link to the correct place.

Sim at cranbank should be in a B737. The usual intro with general handling.... followed by the detail. Which might vary dependant upon experience level. You will be sent a briefing pack with speeds to fly and power settings. Test 1... learn those by heart!!!!!!!

I'd prepare for the basic general handling, steep turns, Climbs and descents at constant speeds etc.... you might try an exercise twice or more.. it's not because you messed it up the first time, it's to see if you improve ie. LEARN! Then end with a HOLD and and ILS. If you have exp maybe an EFATO, SE ILS.

All very standard easy stuff.

Greeting BACF'ers.....

Why you wish to join such a company is beyond me, but Hey Ho..

Brilliant, thanks for that.

I think Sky&ocean and myself can probably sight 50 situations we've been in with Mickey Mouse Airlines throughout the world which make this opportunity a welcome one.

At best, he got to fly in his flip flops. At worst........ well those stories are for the longer flights.

Symptomatic of a company of poor pay, poor rosters, low morale, and
little respect for it's employees.

Regional type airlines are good for only two things, hours and possibility of a quick command but only if you time things well.

In a stagnant market you are stuck with rubbish money, almost certainly away from home and no prospects. Even when things pick up the lightweight ratings preclude you from a descent job!

I never thought I'd say this but PTF schemes seem to offer more to the budding airline pilot now
