Re: APPLICATION FAQ ANSWERS

A conservative figure is 1 in 10 people invited to FEAST will get a training seat, and maybe 2-4 of these people will actually qualify which is probably easily <1% of initial online applicants. I'm not sure how many people actually go through the online process but from those who do, 100 or so are ...

Wrong, Nav doesn’t care about a military license, you’ll have to apply and go through the same process all over again.
This is 100% correct !
Considering my reply above this is an interesting reply from someone not in the company.

Wrong, Nav doesn’t care about a military license, you’ll have to apply and go through the same process all over again. Wrong. They are dealt with on a case by case basis. They need to contact the applicable regional training manager directly. We have seen this approach where I work. I hear the mili...

Re: Seeking details about FEAST rounds (after online assessment test form home)

The numbers I have heard tossed around are 100 are invited to FEAST, 30 to the 2 day boot camp and 10ish will get a training offer (IFR). A quick comment on how this selection process works. You may make it to an eligible for offer stage and get to sit there for 18 months awaiting an offer, but anyo...

Re: ILS question

First of all, you will not be cleared a “localizer” approach if there is an ILS on the chart. You are cleared for the approach based on the name of the chart. “Cleared the ILS Runway XX, Glideslope unserviceable” is the appropriate approach clearance given by ATC if the glideslope is out and you ha...

Does anyone know if the AIM or regulation says that you must get a clearance from ATC to exit from the landing runway onto another runway?
In the AIM - 4.4.4 - Taxiing, page 238: No aircraft shall exit a runway onto another runway unless instructed or authorized to do so by ATC.

We will see all of the equipment codes that you have filed (again, we have to open your...

They are all different, even the same job at different locations. In recent years, with the ability to transfer j...

Jesus, 30 of 250? That's an 8.3% pass rate. These people are crazy.
30 of 250 is a 12% pass rate not 8.3.

Plus it is not a pass rate. 30 people didn't pass with 220 people failing. They took the top 30 scores. Big difference from 220 peopled failed.
