Attended the interview on September 2013 as a First Officer, Sim used was Airbus 320. It was a normal takeoff from LTAC (Ankara) RWY 03R. Then I had to do some general handling such as Steep turns, climb and descent without the flight director (very simple). Then vectors back for ILS RWY 03R and land (Raw data). The second takeoff you will get an engine failure at V1, for me it was number 2 engine. Radar vectors back for ILS RWY 03R and land full stop. All manually flewn and no flight director.
