Susi Air C208B First Officers Interview Process and Stages

Hi everyone, I just came back from Indonesia, attended one of my favorite company Susi Air pilot interview.

C208B (Cessna Grand Caravan), 12 seated, single engine, free turbine turboprop aircraft.

Day 1 : Flight to Jakarta Soekarno Hatta International Airport (CGK), directly go to check-in hotel, taxi and hotel covered by my own pocket.
I strongly suggest your hotel close to the interview venue, because Jakarta traffic jam is horrible.

Day 2 : Arrive Jakarta Halim Perdanakusuma Airport about 6a.m morning, take my breakfast and report at the 2nd floor Susi Air lounge. Air ticket to Jakarta, Taxi and meal covered by my own pocket.
We start at 7a.m for the written test and compass test.
Written test is about CPL/IR, C208B and PT6A-114A engine. 42 questions in 60 minutes.
