Pilot Aptitude Testing for Business Jet/VVIP Operators

Psychological assessments aligned to ICAO pilot competencies for cadets and qualified pilots

At Symbiotics we understand the specific pilot aptitude testing requirements vary considerably for business jet / VVIP operators. We have extensive experience working with business jet operators on their assessment and selection process for both Captains and First Officers, as well as for command upgrades.

We understand the importance of being able to build relationships, to work in smaller, more consistent, crews and operate with a passenger focus to ensure the highest level of customer service and professionalism required for business jet pilots and we have developed a battery of tests specifically designed to take these unique requirements into account.

Combining our in-house technical capability with psychology skills to help to ensure your candidates are an ideal fit for your organisations and that are likely to go on to excel in a business jet / VVIP role.

Contact us today to find out more about how we could help with your business jet or VVIP requirements.

In the past years, I have been using ADAPT extensively. Still the accuracy of the reports amazes me. In times where regulatory requirements and common sense pushes operators to conducting assessments before hiring pilots, one gets the best value for his money with Symbiotics.
