Overview

Founded in 1955, Atlantic Flight Training Academy (AFTA) is Ireland’s largest independent flight training organisation. The organisation provides both modular and integrated flight training courses, with the latter requiring the successful completion of a computerised pilot aptitude test prior to enrollment.

Preparation Advice

All pilot aptitude tests aim to assess the same key core skills required to complete pilot training successfully and/or operate an aircraft competently. The assessment of skills such as multi-tasking, spatial awareness, memory capacity, hand-to-eye coordination and mental arithmetic cannot necessarily be assessed within one test and therefore a pilot aptitude test is commonly separated in to a collection of tests, organised in to a battery and completed by the candidate in one sitting. The candidate is commonly provided with two attempts in which to complete this battery, enabling assessors to analyse improvement shown by the candidate.

Currently, Atlantic Flight Training Academy utilise an online aptitude test tool provided by Cut-E to form the first stage of assessment for their integrated and mentored programmes.

The online preparation software provided by PilotAptitudeTest.com has traditionally been used by a substantial number of candidates attending assessment where the assessor is utilising the same type of computerised pilot aptitude test as Atlantic Flight Training Academy and it is therefore recommended that all prospective Atlantic Flight Training Academy candidates utilise our online preparation software to prepare for assessment at this organisation.

Activities suitable for Atlantic Flight Training Academy Preparation

We recommend using the content shown below in coordination with our Online Preparation Planners to tailor your preparation specifically for the Atlantic Flight Training Academy assessment.

A Super Plus Subscription can be purchased instantly online and will provide access to the content shown below:

Num Reasoning (Type 1)
Numerical Reasoning 1 analyses your ability to interpret information, using figures, tables, graphs and statistics and come to conclusions on the data, just like Cut-E.
Num Reasoning (Type 2)
Numerical Reasoning 2 analyses your ability to interpret information, using figures, tables, graphs and statistics and come to conclusions on the data, just like Cut-E.
Visual Reasoning 2
Visual Reasoning 2 requires the candidate to identify a pattern and route from a collection of images by selecting from four available options.
Verbal Reasoning (Type 2)
Our verbal reasoning content, with multiple passages per test, accurately mimics the questions posed in a large majority of pilot aptitude and psychometric tests, including CEB/SHL, Talent Q and Cut-E.
Visual Reasoning 4
Visual Reasoning 4 presents four images each containing numerous scrambled lines and tasks the candidate with identifying which image hides a shape within.
Visual Reasoning 3
Visual Reasoning 3 presents cube nets with each panel containing a symbol. Candidate must identify which cube net relates to the three-dimensional cube.
Control
Control assesses and enhances candidate ability in hand-to-eye coordination and selective attention using multiple control axes and visual cues.
MultiTasker
Encompassing multiple tasks in to one activity, MultiTasker assesses and enhances candidate ability in multi-tasking, hand-to-eye coordination and selective attention
Perspectives
Perspectives assesses and enhances spatial awareness, tasking the candidate with matching sets of multicoloured cylinders orientated in to different perspectives.
Switch
Switch establishes an understanding of memory capacity and selective attention skills, tasking the candidate with efficiently acknowledging change.
Orientation
Orientation assesses spatial awareness and selective attention skills, by tasking candidates with identifying friend or foe aircraft.
Bearings
Bearings assesses user understanding of their position in physical space, known as spatial awareness, using common flight instruments.
Adjust
A challenging activity, Adjust assesses multi-tasking, spatial awareness, hand-to-eye coordination, selective attention and mental mathematic skills.
Grid
Rectangular grid containing a variety of different coloured shapes. The candidate must examine the grid and determine which shape does not represent the provided values.
Align
Multi-tasking activity with three different activities which must be monitored and successfully completed simultaneously. Horizontal and vertical control mode are provided for practice.
Spin
Rotating tube containing a variety of different two-dimensional shapes, which must be correctly navigated (or flown through) to ensure continued progression through the tube.
