Georgian Sim Eval

Post by Mig29 » Mon Feb 11, 2008 9:11 pm

Hi guys,

might be going for a GGN sim eval soon...wondering if you guys have some tips on what they want to see...I don't have whole lot of multi time, but should be able to feather the engine by now:)

seriously, are they going to toss IFR questions in the sim, or is it strictly fly and keep the airplane from crashing? :)

thanks!

Recently completed the sim eval for Georgian. No big deal. Depart and climb runway heading to 5000'. He will give you some turns and give you a hold clearance. Tell him the type of hold and entry and you will than be vectored onto the ils for a full stop. Don't worry about systems. He just want's to know you can fly. Ps you will have an experienced guy in the seat next to you so use him. :)

So you just fly and tell your f/o to set up navs and stuff, right, off course, you do your side I presume..he wont do that right:)

Did a sim eval for a similar company, applicants were paired up, each took a turn in the left and right seat, one a pilot flying one as non-flying (as in Capt and F/O) Very similar to other description, take off, hold, approach...but we had an engine failure and one other emerg thrown into the mix somewhere...I think they were looking for basic crew co-ordination as we ran a checklist provided. Good luck

Is the sim eval held on the same day as the interview? If not, how long after the interview is it?

guys,

passed my sim eval recently!

Straight forward as you said...no engine failure...T/o, turns, hold, followed by vec. ILs and that's about it...

thanks all!

Have them do as much as possible.

At the sim eval stage they don't expect you to know anything about the aircraft but just want to see what you will do. In mine fora similar company we had an engine failure and a sort of gen failure. Saw the lights and then went straight into the checklist. The main feedback that I got was that it said to reset the gen switches and they were on the Captains side (I was the PF at the time in the left seat) and the PNF couldn't find the switch. So the CP told him where to find it and then I started looking for it on my side too. So then after the CP said "well who was flying the plane when you both were looking for that switch?"

So yeah. Get the PNF to run through the checklists, get approach plates up, confirm type of hold entry, that sort of thing.

That may have have been just this company's policy but it works to just have the PF fly the plane.

I assume proper procedure then would be get the PNF to take control while the captain finds the switch on his side? Sorry if this is a really stupid question. Ie: dont assume he's watching while you are looking for a switch.

In any PPC or sim training, you as pf are expected to follow sop's. Emergencies other than engine fire or failure, the call is emergency check list. In most PPC flights, that is a pass. If they expect more than that in a sim flight, they are checking your pilot decision making skills. You always ensure that someone has control.
