So, you have completed your pilot aptitude assessments and have been invited for interview. Congratulations! The online assessments are designed to assess your potential ability to meet the demands of training, so well done on getting to the next stage. Interviews are typically one of the later stages of the process and are designed for the flight school to get to know a bit more about you and give you the opportunity to show them your motivation, knowledge and skills, so they can make sure you are a suitable candidate for their flight school and that you are ready to start your training. Interviews aren't a one-way street, as they also present an opportunity for you to ask questions of your own and gain a further insight into the academy you are applying to.
The organisation you are applying to may have sent you information ahead of the interview so take some time to read through and understand anything you have been sent. You may experience questions around motivation, your general understanding of the role and training as well as competency questions around the key skills required to be a pilot, so take the time to prepare yourself thoroughly. The process and structure can vary between different flight schools as to what areas are most important for the particular academy, however, you may find it beneficial to build on your understanding of the core competencies required to be a pilot. Our website provides an overview of the key ICAO competencies here and some useful information surrounding these - we recommend taking a look and understanding what they are.
In current times, interviews may not be taking place at the academy you are applying to, and you may have to complete this in another setting of your choice via video conferencing technology, known as a remote interview. These types of interviews have become more and more common, and it may well be that you have been invited to a remote interview. It is very important that these types of interviews are approached with the same care as an in-person interview, and there may even be some things it is important for you to consider that you wouldn't have needed to with an in-person interview.
