It is common place for airlines to utilise their simulators, normally as the final stage of their pilot selection process. You will usually be assessed by a CASA Approved Flight Simulator with a Training/Checking Captain who will be looking at your handling skills, instrument scan, CRM skills and most importantly how easily you take to instruction and how much of a training risk you may be should you be selected for a type rating. It is therefore vital to approach this in as prepared a state as possible. For those who have been searching for that elusive first job for some time or those who have little multi crew currency, a few hours spent with an instructor in a fixed base aircraft simulator can mean the difference between being successful or not.
A typical profile will include a raw data SID, some general handling, a raw data ILS, go-around at minimums followed by vectoring for another raw data ILS or a non-precision approach. Depending on your experience level the airline may include failures such as a V1 cut, engine fire or failure in the cruise, emergency descent etc.
