The path to becoming a pilot is both challenging and highly rewarding. Early in the process, you will be required to undertake and pass a number of specially designed tests to demonstrate you have the aptitude and traits to succeed in the training and in a career as a pilot.
We have a global footprint in the aviation market place, working in over 50 countries to deliver fair, unbiased and reliable psychological testing for aviation. We are trusted by flight training organisations, business jet operators and airlines in over 50 countries across the world.
Our clients use the ADAPT solution to conduct pilot aptitude testing to identify individuals that have the potential to succeed in the role of a pilot. Our tests can predict at this early stage the future performance of candidates as defined by ICAO's pilot competencies.
Our assessments are designed to measure your skills and aptitudes including Psychomotor, Cognitive, Problem Solving and Decision-Making skills. Our behavioural assessments, including the ADAPT Personality Questionnaire, are designed to assess your psychological profile, suitability for the training as well as your motivation, pressure management and coping strategies. We also provide knowledge tests including Maths and Physics in an aviation context and English Language. Added to this is FAST (Future Aptitude Selection Tool), which tests physical and cognitive skills in a demanding multi-tasking exercise and our Co-ordination and Fixed Wing tests.

For our client's formal assessments, we generate tests with varying content for every student taking the test so that they cannot be replicated or shared to prevent cheating. Our tests have been created by a team of psychologists using genuine and authentic measures.
It may not always be obvious how to best prepare as airlines and training schools do not always provide details of the specific aptitude tests you will undertake during the assessment process In our experience, most assessments follow similar subjects, therefore we recommend the following key practice tests in order to improve your chance of being successful: Maths, Physics, Cognitive Reasoning, English (if English is not your first language), Multi-tasking (FAST) and Hand-Eye Co-Ordination.
