Pilot Readiness Indicator Test


Our Pilot Readiness Test is designed to assess relevant areas to pilot training and identify any areas that you are stronger or weaker in so you can establish where you are in your journey to becoming a pilot and can focus your preparation prior to applying to a flight school.

The Pilot Readiness Test consists of a range of questions from our pilot aptitude tests each selected to allow us to identify your pilot readiness level. The test features Maths, English, Cognitive and Physics questions.
