1 - Simulator Assessment

Simulator Assessment

Simulator Scenario 1: (Click on the red text inside each sim scenario to open approach plates)

Attended the interview on February 2013 as a Captain. The B737 simulator was booked, so the sim assessment was in the Emb190. The Line Captain prepares you very well and understands that you may never have flown the airplane before. The briefing is about 50-60 minutes. You will also have good First Officer to help you with whatever you ask for, including all the automation. They are looking for emergency management, CRM, decision making etc. Very little hand flying-takeoff and landing only. Autopilot was used most of the time (immediate after takeoff). Takeoff, Bogotá Columbia 13R for Panama City. Low ceilings. Loose engine during takeoff roll just after 100 kts. Aborted takeoff. Repositioned. Normal Takeoff- follow departure procedure. Through about FL 180, loose engine. Bogota gone below minimums. I chose to divert to Rionegro. ILS to single engine missed approach. Start flying the single engine missed. Then the Line Captain stopped the simulator repositioned for single engine, hand flown ILS to a full stop RWY 13R Bogota Columbia.
