Poem by ..........


At the age of six, I got the call, from deep within my soul.
At age nineteen, I learned to fly, and fanned my kindled fire.
I found another world out there, not too far away,
A world that only pilots know, and that will always be.
Some prefer it's daylight time, but I prefer the night.
There were times that raced my blood, but they were very few.
With wings of man and strong desire, I've left my cares on earth,
And soared into a star filled sky, to soothe my yearning heart.
I've seen and done a thousand things, with flight in that domain.
I've danced alone with moonlit clouds, high above the earth,
And dove and whirled and slipped between, in valleys made for me.
I've seen the sun turn night to day, and day to night in the west.
I've watched the moon's nocturnal flight, until it slid from view.
I've seen the dancing northern lights, with unobstructed view.
I've gazed at distant planets, while deep in solemn thought,
Wondering if someone's out there, wondering, just like me.
I've seen the flash of thunderstorms, when flying high above.
I've clashed with mother nature's wrath, when flying in her realm.
Her realm is where the devils tread, and cast their spears of fire,
But she always deemed to let me pass, to fly another day.
And I've followed the winds to majestic heights, to heights where nothing is,
And in the tranquil peace of space, I touched the hand of God.

Some memories that I managed to 'copy and save' from flydamnit.com

Got some more, regarding MAS psychomotor/psychometric interview experience shared by some of flydamnit.com forumers, that I believe most of them are fly high now..

I will post them here when I have time later.

Username : Rasyid


ok .. here goes my interview ..

Mr X , Puan Y , Mr Z ... and then i give my file .. then they ask me to close the door rapat rapat .. then sit ..

puan Y: are you ok .. you look nervous

rasyid: im ok ...

puan Y: owh .. lots of school .. ok .. why do you want to be a pilot ?

rasyid: because bla bla bla ...

puan Y: Why suddenly change ? last time u r from religious school .. then u take network .. now why choose pilot ?

rasyid: its not like that .. bla bla bla ..

puan Y:when did u get to know about this interview

rasyid: er .. (im counting with my finger .. really forgot because my mum called me informing me .. actually already know long time before .. but if i say one month .. then theyll say i should have make alot of preparation .. so to play safe .. i use the date they send me letter ) ... bout two weeks .. i get the news during my final exam .. thats why im abit confused ..

Mr X : what did u prepare ? lets make it simple .. you tell us everything you have prepared for this interview ..

rasyid: about MAS .. MASwing ... Firefly ... history ( tell them about the history ) ... fleet ...

puan Y: ok that is common .. if u are coming to this interview for any job for MAS ... u need to know dat .. but tell us what u prepare as a cadet pilot ..

rasyid: ok .... i read about aircraft .. how they fly ...

Mr Z: can you explain ..

rasyid:sure ... (draw draw .... xplain ... i mention about howstuffworks.com and Mr X was excited .. he says that his son always go to this website .. )

Mr Z:your aerofoil look like a whale .. ( then they all laugh .. i just keep smiling )..

Mr Z: u study at JB rite .. so do u fly to kuching with Airasia ?

rasyid: sometimes ... ( i say this word like whispering... then evrybody laugh )

Mr Z:ok rasyid ..why dont you just be a computer person ... be like a bill gates .. u can travel .. have your own private jet .. your own pilot .. besides , people will serve u when u travel ...

rasyid: im not that smart sir .. bla bla bla ..

Mr Z:hey .. bla bla bla ( its abit religious here so dont wanna explain .) ..

rasyid: sir .. then i think i dont have interest much in computer like Bill Gates does ..

Mr Z: haha .. so when u be a pilot .. u will do the same .. u will have nop interest after some times ... do you know how much is the cost to send you ?

rasyid:yes ... ( then he talks alot .. then i say i will never lost interest in being a pilot )

puan Y: .. are you sure ? i will write down here .. ( a form paper ) what u r telling me .. i can use this 10 years later if u loose interest ..

: okay madam .. u may ..

Mr Z:what is the characteristic of a pilot ..

: (i name 5 .. i never prepared it so just hentam ... luckily stop at 5 ..)

then finish .. its much longer .. but dont think need to tell all ... sumtimes just the same Q ..

but i was never asked about ..
- BOD , chairman , strength , weakness , no situation , no " what will you be 10 years from now " , no rocket question ...

b4 i go out .. shake hand ... and Mr X says .. 2 days coming will be ur birthday right .. so happy birthday ... then bagi salam .. blah ..

i think my interview is not very good because they seems not asking critical question .. they were like entertaining me .. not interviewing me ..

the fella after me got hit badly ....

-- Fri Nov 26, 2010 8:52 pm --

Dusk said..


MAS (Malaysia Airlines System) interview process is the 3rd stage of a 4 stage cadet selection process. After completing the Psychomotor and Psychometric test, they will want to interview u themselves. This is actually to test your confidence and to see weather you are really interested in flying or not. Because, there is no better way to do that. Of course u could act at the interview, but that's up to u.

For the interview, wear a tie. This is because everyone there wears a tie, belt, and black shoes. They will ask u why don't u wear a tie if ure unlucky. Don't let them find a reason to not take u in the airlines.

When u enter the room, there will be 3 or 4 people sitting behind a long table. Before u enter the room, knock and greet them appropriately. Don't sit until they ask u to or else they will say who asked u to sit? or who gave u permission to sit? So, ask permission before sitting( Can I have a seat Sir..??!)

This is to startle u to make ur confidence drop. Then they will shoot u with questions and pressure u. So, keep calm and answer everything confidently. If u don't know, just say u don't know. They don't want u to try to give the wrong answer. Or just answer confidently. Haha.

So im gonna give some example of the interview questions. These are questions collected from most of the cadets. If you are really interested in aviation u must know a little bit of aerodynamics.

So what do they ask during a MAS interview?

Bernoulli's Principle

Quote
Bernoulli's Principle states that as the speed of a moving fluid increases, the pressure within the fluid decreases.

Like what u learnt in physics. So the wing is an aerofoil. Air moves faster above than below (because it has to travel further). So, as the principle suggest, a low pressure area is created above the wing. This pulls the plane up creating a lift. If the lift is greater then the drag, the plane will lift off the ground.



Another component affecting the plane is the drag. Which is countered by the trust of the plane. U guys should know this already. Next they might as you about..



These pictures is not by me. I dont remember where are they from. I googled them.

The Fleet status
B747-400 (Passenger) = ??
B747-200 (Freighter) =??
B777-200=??
A330-200 =??
A330-300 =??
B737-400 =??
F50 =??
DHC6 Twin Otter =??
Total number of aircraft =??



These are taken directly from the Malaysia Airlines site http://www.malaysiaairlines.com

Then u have to know this names..

Board of Directors


Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) : ??
Appointed on : ??


Chairman : ??
Appointed on : ??


Senior General Manager Flight Operations :??


General Manager Flight Operations (Ops & Dev)

Chief Pilot (Training & Standards)



Situations

Finally learn the MAS history. Some people got asked a little bit on this. http://hq.malaysiaairlines.com/mh/eng/a ... out_us.asp

Owh, I just remembered. If they ask u If u don't get pass this interview, will u join _____(enter nemesis airlines name here)_____ ?

The answer for this is Yes..!!

I will join any airlines because my dream is to fly and I want to make a carrier from what I like to do the most. I've always imagined myself flying continue with your own stuff.

Another interesting part of this interview is they will give u a situation. They will put u in some kind of complex situation where u will be given a few choices. None of the choices will seem right to u but u have to find the best way out.

For example, u just joined the airlines and now u have to fly with this very senior captain with 30 years of experience. Its dark outside with clouds scowling around u. He is descending to where he claims is an airport, but u know there is a mountain up ahead. If he keeps descending at this rate, he, I mean, both of u and 200 passangers will hit the mountain for sure. What will u do?

So what's ur answer? Talk politely to the captain??! NO!!! I know what im doing!! He shouts at u back.

The interviewers will shout at u back. “How can u question his experience? He is a senior captain!”

You will be.. Um..I will.....

7000ft!  Another captain making things difficult for you.

I will...

5000!!! he counts mercilessly.

I will grab the controls from him and knock him out.!! You came out with ur best solution.

3000! You hit a mountain.

Now u realized u should have tried to reason with him. U must understand a senior captain doesn't take advices form younger people because everybody has got some ego in them. So u have to try a different approach. You cant go, Captain! You are wrong! Im right!! Imagine a 10 year old speaks to u like that. Teaching u to do ur job. The thing u have been doing forever.

So try, Captain, are u sure there is an airport there?
If he insist to continue, say Where is this 4000ft mountain suppose to be?
Act modest, make him tell u where is it. This way he will realize and attempt to cover his pride. Hehe.
Owh I was planning to go around the mountain. I wasn't trying to go straight at it.
Case solved. But u might get another situation.

Sometimes, in other situation u have to be assertive. I don't know what will they throw at you. Anyway, I think I might given abit too much info. So u might just cheat on the interview which will cancel the whole purpose of the interview. But u must be really interested in flying to have found this page. Haha. So its not too bad. In the end, it all comes down to u on how u present urself to them. Good luck for those who is going to this interview.

This interview is from my own experience, some of the cadets, some who is already flying, and my dad who used to conduct the interview



hopefully it helps..
