Any ideas about the assessment? Which type do you think will be flown for NTR guys?

They send the terms and conditions with the email inviting you to the assessment.

B737-800 full motion. Itís pretty straight forward, and youíll receive a full sim assessment briefing including Jeppy plates (also supplied on the day). No QRH involved.

Cheers! I've never been on a 737 seat before, even on jump seat. Any advise for preparation?

The 2 guys I flew hadnít flown the 737 before and did a good job. The automatics were available for most of it, so I wouldnít worry too much. Obviously if you have money to burn, 737 FBS or FFS session would help you familiarise with the MCP, but MS FS or Xplane type desktop sim would be enough to help do that. With everyone having thousands of hours flying experience, CRM is what theyíre really looking at. Good luck!

Thanks a lot! You've been real helpful. How about the group exercise? Is it find the murderer kinda or some basic discussion on a topic?

Itís standard format. Everyone reads from laminated cards, and youíre time limited to find the answers. Further time pressure is exerted later. The scenario changes each time it would seem. We never found out whether we were right or not. Just be yourself and not too quiet and not over bearing.

So have the NTR guys actually received an invite to assessment yet ?, or are you just speculating as to what is involved in the assessment ?.

There was a mixture of rated and non-rated at my assessment recently. Dash 8 - A380.

Don’t loose hope yet, if you’ve applied and not heard anything about being selected for assessment, as according to their website everyone will be informed the outcome of their application even if unsuccessful.

Received the invite recently and I'm not a UK resident, but hold UK FCL and Medical. Am I setting the precedent or is there anyone else in this situation?

I'm from the UK, hold a UK licence but currently flying in the sandpit.
Thought I had a fairly good chance of getting called with my experience....
I put a fair amount of work into my application, but with NTR guys getting called up before me, obviously not enough 😅

Thanks for the reply & I wish everyone called for the assessment the best of luck
