AIRLINE PILOT SELECTION

OVERVIEW

AAG provides a robust pilot assessment, selection and recruitment process for airlines and individuals. With more and more spotlight being shone on incidents occurring in the cockpit, we are seeing selection processes for airlines scrutinized across the globe.

While using a third party to conduct the pilot selection process is still seen by some as a high cost exercise, the growing number of accidents and incidents involving pilots highlights the need for a rigorous and unbiased procedure.

By choosing AAG as a partner to deliver the selection process, the airline is able to benefit from the following:

  • Improved avoidance of future risk
  • Pilot’s character matches airline culture
  • Pilots requiring less remedial training
  • Lower training costs
  • Lower overall costs
  • Reduced turnover of pilots

AAG have adopted the ADAPT software by Symbiotics Performance Solutions. ADAPT is a tool used widely by international airlines and pilot training academies that is designed specifically to acquire the best personnel. ADAPT will predict the trainability of the pilot, their operational effectiveness and how they would fit into an airline.


Ab Initio Pilot Selection

Becoming a pilot is not easy; it requires dedication and hard work as well as the required knowledge level and aptitude. As part of its selection process, AAG use the ADAPT software to assess and measure an individual’s overall ability to learn and succeed in training.

The areas covered in the Ab Initio Pilot Assessment are:

  • Personality Questionnaire
  • Math
  • English
  • Physics
  • FAST (Future Aptitude Screening Tool)
  • Cognitive Tests
  • Coordination Assessment
  • Fixed Wing Computer Based Assessment

Upon completing the assessment, cadets will be required to undergo an interview with a panel of aviation experts. For more information on AAG’s airline pilot selection, please contact us.


Qualified Pilot Selection

For an airline looking to recruit qualified CPL/IR holders, AAG offer a tailored solution for pilot assessment and selection. Again, using the ADAPT software, the ‘cadet selection team’ are able to provide a blended report to the airline highlighting cadets that are likely to excel in training or those that may provide an element of risk.

The areas covered in the Pilot Assessment for CPL/IR holders are:

  • Advanced Personality Questionnaire
  • FAST (Future Aptitude Screening Tool)
  • Aviation Knowledge based on ATPL theory
  • Cognitive Tests
  • Coordination Assessment
  • Fixed Wing computer based assessment

Upon completing the assessment, cadets will be required to undergo an interview with a panel of aviation experts.
