Hi all!
I'm doing Day 1 early July.

Does anyone know which tests are in effect at the moment?
Which tool is best to prepare? Skytest?

Good Evening Fellas & Females,

Just signed in to echo the sentiments of request directly above regarding Day 1 & beyond.

Can anyone who has already been on this well trodden path give us new hopefuls an insight into what to expect come Day 1 please? The Maths & Verbal reasoning is crystal clear. Just need some concrete clarity into what exactly does the modern CBT assessment entail? (shapes/ILS tracking/Hand info processing? classic skytest profile or?).

Feel free to Pass the Mustard

Regards

E.M

Stage 1; Maths test, multi choice answers and not too hard. Verbal reasoning, again not too hard, and quite clear cut, just read everything carefully. Finally there is the BA capacity test, which is the TCAS style one with a couple of systems to look after as well.

The classic PILAPT flight director/shapes/numbers isn’t used any more.

No calculator allowed. But they do provide a pencil and paper.

I'd like to prepare for my upcoming sim by having a look at Aerad charts like they use, and an example flight plan so I can see the format.

Does anyone know where to find copies (out of date is fine too!)?

Thanks a lot, please feel free to PM me if you can help.
