A demanding admission exam is critical in order to assess the candidate. This includes evaluating basic skills, psychometric skills, general knowledge, as well as personality and motivation. Not only is a candidate assessment required as per EASA regulations, but more importantly, it helps the candidate decide on whether a career as a pilot is actually a good fit for them.
- English language equivalent to ICAO Level 4
- Hold a current EASA Class 1 Medical Certificate
- Be at least 18 years old
- Bachelor’s degree or Master’s degree, which is also valued by airline companies. Exceptions may apply, but an additional exam is required.
The admission process includes:
- A curriculum vitae and a cover letter must be submitted to begin the process. If selected:
- An admissions interview with the head of training to determine the candidate’s commitment and for him/her to ask any remaining questions.
- A computer-based test to evaluate IQ (intelligent quotient) and EQ (emotional quotient) and a short interview with an aviation coach where you together jointly assess your readiness to pursue a career in aviation.
For non-native English speakers, the interview also serves as an assessment of the candidate’s English level.
