What our clients say about us

I had no prior experience with using psychological assessments prior to engaging Symbiotics to act as our contractor to do these tests on our crews. I have to say that I was really pleased with the results which far exceeded my expectations.

It has already provided highly detailed analysis of crew personalities and non-technical skills. The whole interaction with the sales personnel and analysts throughout has been thoroughly professionally and well handled by the Symbiotics team.

Keep up the great work! Well done!

Vinpearl Air selected ADAPT because we know many airlines in the world, as well as our training partner CAE, use this tool from Symbiotics for professional pilot screening. The ADAPT reports will help us to know more about our students and we use this to brief them and their parents about their capability to become professional pilots. ADAPT is used to recommend candidates most likely to graduate from training school before they commence pilot training.

Mr Pham Duy Long, Acting CEO of VinAviation School, Vinpearl Air

Since I took over FlyBy in May 2015, I understood how important is to give proper and honest feedback to potential pilots about their prospects both, to being able to complete the training but even more importantly, so determine if they were a good fit for the industry. Our aspiring pilots required to take the admission tests from anywhere in the world. We now have over 76 different nationalities represented in the school. Symbiotics has proven to be an excellent tool to evaluate the aspiring pilots abilities and skills, and therefore to make sure they have taken action to improve their skill before joining the flight training. Yes, It has also been very good in identifying applicants that were not a good fit. Despite how hard it is to tell someone that it is not advisable to continue pursuing their childhood dream, we believe it is way better than letting them spend the fortune pilot training costs nowadays. This has proven of incredible value to us as a flight school, but more importantly, to our aspiring pilots.

Alex Alvarez, CEO, FlyBy

Thank you very much for a very valuable and well executed report interpretation session. This means we can now better understand and use the ADAPT report output as part of our Instructor recruitment process. I very much look forward to working with Symbiotics to make sure we have an optimum fit between CAE FiiN (Flight Instructor Initiative) pillars and our ADAPT tests.
