the only way to practice is to buy the package from the molly website and use the 8 practice sessions you get.

compared to the DLR, mollymawk is in my opinion easier.

good luck with the test.

Dont worry. Do your best it should not be a problem. Its much more easier than the DLR. Do them both as quıckly as possible while they are still recruiting.

Just paid for the two mollymawk packages.. Doesn't give you alot of chances to practice! how many weeks is a reasonable time to prepare for the test?

Cheers

A few days is enough. The real test and the practice tests are pretty much the same.

What's the general consensus about having to pass these types of tests in order to get in with an airline? What happened to the good 'ole days of a one to one interview and a sim check? Too many to interview perhaps.........

Having seen the T+Cs , unfortunately it would appear the commuting option will make it tricky to have a life.

7 day block off, so in reality 5 at home after positioning and no leave at all in commuting. 60 days a year at home.

It would probably be a great job if you are Turkish or single.

FTG, that is the normal conception. It's very commuting unfriendly. If you can relocate it's a great place to work at. I don't know how the rosters will look at the new bases though.

The eastern bases are all to support the Anadolu Jet operations, expect 5 on 1 off and 4 sectors. The normal flight time for Captains is 1000 hrs/year and the 75% roster ( with 75% pay) will allow about 720 hrs a year. You cannot add scheduled days off to the start of the commuting period to increase it to 8 days or at the end. Normally the 4 legs start early and you will need to be back the day before the duty cycle. Approc 20 hrs week flight time ( about 20 sectors). To commute you will have to position first to a main base unless you are ESB based, some flights to Europe from there with other airlines.

? This is what the discussion is about ...DEC are only at Eastern bases and the 75% roster pattern can only be requested at these bases. Previous posts cover all the points..

Can anyone who's been to an actual recent interview relay what was/is involved? What sim was used and what scenarios were given?

Thanks
