In 'Part 1,' we mention the 5 Key Pitch Settings, crucial for you to maintain capacity throughout the exercise, so you keep situational awareness and make better decisions.
The airline sim assessment is unique. It differs from any other sim exercise you’ll do in your career. It’s different from what you did at your MCC, what you’ll do during a Type Rating and what you’ll do during your recurrent checks.

The 5 Key Pitch Settings will help you greatly. It presents a structured approach to airplane configuration whatever the weight, and teaches you how to fly in a stable and controlled way at all times, so you can focus on making decisions. You then get to shine with your non technical skills to pass your selection.
