  • PILAPT (Pilot Aptitude Testing)

PILAPT is a computer-based aptitude testing facility. Amongst others PILAPT measures aptitude for visual flight, flying blind, complex flying involving a crew situation establishing priorities, 3D-thinking and multi-tasking.

  • Written test facilities

English verbal reasoning test: This test measures the technical knowledge of the English language. Numerical & numeracy tests: These tests measure the candidate’s mathematical and psychological intelligence and capacities in relation to the aviation training.

  • (Acceptance) Interviews

Has the candidate just started his/her training to become pilot, or has he/she already graduated and now applies for a job at an airline company? (Acceptance) interviews are  held by independent staff of large airline companies based on a candidate’s  previous knowledge and experience. For example the interviewers work as an airline instructor or hold a management position within a large organization.

  • Simulator assessment

In case of doubt, or as a second opinion a simulator assessment is one of the possibilities for an additional practical pilot selection. The assessments for ab-initio’s (cadets) or experienced certified pilots, are executed by experienced instructors with a long record of service,  who work both as commercial pilot and instructor at all times at an airline company. Of course you may also use your own instructors.
