Cockpit Recruitment Process

Dear Pilot Candidate,

Our cockpit recruitment process consists of following six steps:

During the first step, your personal documents and licenses are checked by the H.R. team. The required qualifications and your documents are evaluated. Our H.R. team contacts candidates who have successfully passed the document control step and initiates the planning process for these individuals.

During the second step, the Mollymawk Psychometric Test is performed, in which main psychometric capabilities that a pilot must possess are tested for. The Mollymawk test covers many different fields. These fields consist of: physics, mathematics, spatial orientation, working memory and time sharing. These tests are held in pre-defined test centers. The results are received 10 minutes after the end of the exam. Total time for the exams is three (3) hours. For further details please refer to the https://www.mollymawk.de/  link.

Candidates who receive the required score on the Mollymawk test go to the third step in the process, which is the simulator exam. “Full motion” flight stages are performed in a Boeing 737NG simulator. You will be accompanied by a captain or co-pilot of SunExpress throughout the duration of the exam. Necessary documentation will be sent to you so that you can prepare for the exam.

During the fourth step you will be invited to an interview which is conducted by our selection committee. This interview with the selection committee lasts approximately one and half hours. The entire interview process is conducted in English. The selection committee is comprised of a human resources specialist, a captain pilot from flight operations and a aviation psychologist. During the interview each specialist will ask questions according to their respective professions. Within five to ten minutes immediately after the interview we will inform you of the results.

For the fifth step our Human Resources and Training Departments will recheck the requested documents from you with the original ones. For Turkish candidates the training date is set and the employment process starts.

For foreign personnel there is a sixth step of applying for a work permit. Our human resources specialists will guide you through the process. It takes about thirty (30) days for a work permit to be issued.

We wish all of our candidates the best of luck.
