ADAPT is the only pilot selection system that is fully compliant and currently exceeding IATA Guidance Material and Best Practice for Pilot Aptitude Testing.
ADAPT has a 98.5% accuracy rate to date, it is operational in 5 continents and 13 countries and is currently avialable in four languages. The system works for ten different platform profiles and offers 8 levels of assessment from Ab initio through to TRI/QFI/Test pilot.
The ADAPT Process
The full ADAPT assessment is a five-stage process
These stages provide information on personality, skills and situation to build up a naturalistic, contect-specific view of a candidate and provide a well-rounded view of their performance in four domains:
ADAPT measures flight behaviour and learning, modality dominance, effects of anxiety, situation awareness, accuracy and control, disruption, recovery and flight parameter deviation, personality states and traits, Standard Operating Procedure adherence and interpretation, real and context specific behaviours.
From the information gathered an automated and objective analysis of the candidate is carried out and customers are provided with a comprehensive report which includes trainability, suitability and operational performance. The reports shows candidate performance against generic pilot population as well as showing pinch points, KPI and competencies of a syllbabus demonstrating where the candidate will do well and where they may struggle during training. Finally the candidate is assessed agains performance and fit within the learning and operating environment.
The ADAPT Difference
Benefits to Organisation:
Benefits to Academy:
Symbiotics has established a global foot print selecting hundreds of next generations pilots each year at locations across the globe.
Operating with CAE Global Academy, ADAPT has been augmenting the CASS (CAE Aircrew Selection System) scheme to select the finest Ab-initio cadets
ADAPT is currently being used in the aviation environment, informing the pilot selection process; placing candidates in the civil training pipeline.
ADAPT assesses a candidates ability to ‘think and do' in a particular profession and, where possible, train and adjust a candidates skills to an organisations requirement.
ADAPT selects rotary-wing pilots for the Algerian military and police. Read about how we offered this bespoke selection in our case study report.
