Assessment Details


Every candidate who wants to take advantage of our sponsorship scheme and cadet pilot programme must have successfully passed our selection process. This is how we identify the most talented, motivated candidates who have the ability and potential to complete the course and become qualified, employed pilots.

After applying for the programme, shortlisted candidates will be asked to undergo scientifically designed assessments to determine their suitability for employment as airline pilots.

The selection process is not just about ticking boxes and checking skills - it's an opportunity for potential cadets to showcase their skills across a range of areas. We are looking to see where our financial investment is best placed, and we only select the best candidates for progression into the training programme.

What does the selection process entail?

The selection process consists of four stages. First and second stage will be done online. Successful candidates will be then invited to Manila in August 2022 for the third and fourth stage.

First Stage - Online Application

The first stage is to pass the application screening. We will check everything that you have told us, so honesty, accuracy and transparency is an absolute must. We will then compile a shortlist of candidates we would like to see more of.

Second Stage - Online Assessment

Shortlisted candidates will be invited to undertake online testing. This consists of two stages – the first is free for all candidates, the second is only for those who successfully pass the first stage and costs the candidate $300. These stages have been designed to determine your technical and non-technical proficiencies, as well as behavioural/situational assessments which focus on how you deal with various situations and how you prefer to interact in your personal and work life.

Passing the online assessment phase will mean that you get invited to our main selection day, which will be held in Manila (Philippines) in August 2022.

Third Stage - Group Activity Exercise

You will be asked to complete a group activity along with your fellow candidates. This is a chance for you to show us your interpersonal skills; we’re looking at communication, teamwork, decision-making and problem solving, among other attributes.

Fourth Stage - Interview with Selection Committee

Next is an approximately 30 minutes long, face-to-face interview. This is primarily about competencies, and you will be required to provide recent, relevant and detailed answers.

The selection process is not easy - we're looking for the best candidates with the right tools to complete the course successfully. However, our team will make sure to put you at your ease and build an environment that lets you relax and be yourself - we need to see the real you at these events.

Medical Conditions

You are not required to disclose any personal medical information as part of the selection process, but you should be aware that you will need a medical certificate (EASA Class 1) to progress to the training programme if your application and selection are successful.
