Ah... ok. Airline Management experience I take it. I would imagine most of us military dudes/dudets are just glad to be here. I honestly enjoy getting paid to sit in the right seat with less responsibility. Definitely no desire to co-captain here...

But instead, they keep moving the goal posts with these asinine qualifiers. Not everyone gets to be a management pilot. Those who think you just apply and get those jobs have probably never held them. On most properties, you have to kiss a lot of ass and play golf or drink with the right people to get those jobs. Some people are locked out of this jobs because of who they are, or because they don't look like the people doing the hiring. So they're worthless things to grade people on. It doesn't give you better pilots, it gives you pilots who the day they get off probation, start captaining from the right seat. Who wants to spend 4 days with that? I'd rather have the line pilot who moves the freight.

And before someone hands me sour grapes, I'm not looking for a job, I'm good where I am. Just something I've noticed after decades in this industry.
This is nearly perfect circular logic.

How you call them, three and a half or four and a half strips pilot in command?
I will always say.
Flying is the easiest , rewarding job I have ever have, of course training, recurrent,line check, difficult people to fly ,you name it,etc bring little stress to me.
The most difficult job with the right people will be the easiest job to do.
The most easiest job with the difficult people will be tourtre,my few cents.

Does the new pilot skills test give you a pass/fail or does it just accept how you've done and make a behind the scenes score/determination?

It just showed up. It's at the bottom of the navigation bar on the left side of the screen underneath "References". I'm hearing it's only showing up on desktops though. Not mobile devices.

Has anyone taken this new test yet? I'm assuming they changed it.

I took mine yesterday. Itís all cognitive stuff. Nothing on there struck me as something I could have studied for. Some of the questions give immediate feedback if you chose the right or wrong answer but there was no pass/fail at the end of each section or the end of the entire test.

Did you get a green check mark on the pilot skills test after completing it?

My ďchecklistĒ section doesnít show an area for the skills test to be checked off. When I click on the pilot skills test tab and go to the portal, thatís where it says ďthank you for completing this assessment.Ē Would it not being in the summary section mean something bad?
