20% Off ADAPT Practice Pilot Aptitude Assessments for Airside Members

Symbiotics and CAE have teamed up to provide airside members a 20% discount on all Symbiotics' practice assessments. Helping you to prepare for your pilot aptitude assessments as best as possible.

Pilot aptitude tests are a form of psychometric testing that provides an insight into your suitability for a position as a pilot by assessing the core pilot competencies set out by ICAO, in addition to any other key areas defined by an airline.

Before you join an airline or if you are moving to another airline, you will likely experience assessments so the airline or organisation can gain an understanding of your skills and likely behaviour to see if you are a suitable match for their organisation. This is beneficial for both you and the company so you can be sure they are the right fit for you as well! You may continue to experience aptitude tests throughout your career and particularly if you move to a different fleet, upgrade to the LHS or move into a complimentary role such as instructing.

It is important to be as prepared as possible when taking a pilot aptitude test and one of the best things you can do is to take practice tests. Practice tests can allow you to familiarise yourself with what to expect in the assessment process, allowing you to reduce your test anxiety and perform to the best of your ability.

Symbiotics' ADAPT Practice Pilot Aptitude Assessments are designed by Symbiotics to replicate the ADAPT Assessments that are used by airlines all around the world and upon completion provide you with a detailed report summarising your result and detailing personalised revision guidance.

Take advantage of a 20% discount on your ADAPT practice pilot aptitude assessments.
