Trainee Pilot


Increasingly in recent years Aptitude Tests are being used as part of the selection process for many careers. One such career is trainee pilot where the test determines whether or not applicants are cleared to the interview stage of the selection process. Performance of candidates in aptitude tests can be improved in a number of ways. These include exposure to tests (i.e. seeing tests in advance), by practice and by being taught good test technique. Throughout the course good test technique will be taught and developed.

Types of Tests Covered

  • Mechanical Reasoning
  • Abstract Reasoning
  • Spatial reasoning
  • Numerical Reasoning
  • Comprehension Passages

Emphasis will be placed on tests similar to those used in previous competitions for the selection of Trainee Pilots and on tests, which assess skills relevant to the position of Trainee Pilot along with tests used by airlines abroad and the military.

If for any reason the Trainee Pilot Aptitude Test changes Test Preparations will make such amendments as are necessary to our preparation courses to ensure that we continue to deliver the highest quality programme possible.
