Hi Iggi,

Is this feedback from a recent assessment?
I'm due to go the assessment in just a few weeks and looking at Aerologic's invitation, the assessment is expected to be the following:
Day 1: Psychometric tests, Group scenarios
Day 2: Sim and Interview

Not that it terribly changes anything but wondering if they are just flexible on the assessment outline?
I suppose that due to COVID they skipped the "famous" Dinner Interview ?

Thanks for the feedback and I hope your colleague had a positive outcome

Hi Folks above,

I did my assessment in October last year, unfortunately failed the simulator, but they were happy enough to give me another go in 2021.

However, my tips are as follows....

Day 1 is as I experienced it was an intense day, very long. You come in at the Hotel and you wait to enter the big room where you will do an x amount of test, i believe it was in the area of 15 different test. Ranging from English, German, knowledge questions, ATPL questions, maths, physics, psychometric testing, psychological questions and some reaction tests. In all fairness, you have some things you can prepare, but also a lot that should be or could be common knowledge. The book I used to prepare was ‚Testtraining 2000+‘ from Hesse Schrader. Take a few days/week if you want to prepare for it. You can do the tests in your own pace... At the beginning of the testing, you can decide if you want to do the tests in English or German. Dont be fooled, not all the tests will be in English and the psychological testing will be in German.

After all the testing, you’ll be dealt in to random groups and perform a group exercise. Result is not important, showing that you can work together is. I am not a native German speaker so I needed to listen intently so i could follow precisely what was happening. I felt slightly uncomfortable as i could not be my 100% self and throw my opinion in, but AeroLogic complimented me on it. So what you think is correct, is not always correct in their eyes.

Afterwards you all can choose to meet up for dinner on AeroLogics costs and you’ll hear between 8pm and 9pm if you did or did not pass to the next round.

at the beginning of the day the simulator slots for the next day are already planned, so you’ll have an estimate on what you’ll be in the sim if you pass. Just remember, dont pas is no sim.

Day 2:

First you do the sim. This is where I dropped out. However, please do take my advice for it as i did not follow the tips and payed the price. There is a simulator center near the hotel from Lufthansa. At this sim center there is a man who does AeroLogic prep sessions, he will walk you through the sim session which “easy”. However, if you are rated, they are really strickt. Get as much raw data sim prep as you can!
All is raw data. You are on the runway in Leipzig and will do the Before Take Off Checks...
- Take Off 3000’ and make a turn.
- Pass transition altitude (set standard)
- Level Off
- Climbing turn/descending turn 20 AoB and 1000ft per minute.
- Descend 3000’
- Vectors Raw Data NDB approach
- GoAround... one engine out.
- Memory Items? No memory items.
- Shut engine down
- Vectors Raw Data Single Engine ILS Approach

You’ll get the result 2-3 minutes later.

If you failed you’ll have an exit interview. They’ll inform you of your scores of the following day, and if they were happy with that then you’ll be invited to come back within 12 months. If you did not fit their profile, then they’ll thank you for your interest in AeroLogic.

If you passed, you’ll have an interview where they want to get to know you. Why cargo? Why AeroLogic? What drives you? Hobbies? So on so on....

Then a few days/weeks later you will get a phone call or email informing you of the result.

Good Luck to you all and stay safe!

Hit AtlasPilot,
1.) You are right - my bad! The order of events is now corrected in my post above. It is indeed as you posted.
2.) It was a positive assessment from roughly 08/2020 - Start date of CBT and TR was 11/2020.
3.) Not sure about the dinner. might have been a "COVID" related skip on that part.

Good Luck to you & use the Hesse Schrader Testtraining and Skytest Books/Sotware. It seems to help a lot for the first part.

Hi MrGustave,

Can't make a 100% statement concerning the language, but I think it depends on your native language.
If german = most parts will be done in german. But there will be english questions - especially during the interview part.

Things I recall were in the line of:
"Explain part xyz from your Aircraft - What is it used for / How does it work?"; "Explain a pandemic/Covid to your collague!"; "Would you be here if it wasn't for a global crisis in pax aviation?"

Good luck to you too
