BA Cityflyer, a wholly owned subsidiary of British Airways, operates both international and domestic services from London City Airport. BA Cityflyer utilises pilot aptitude tests for the assessment of pilot candidates. FTE Jerez, who operate an MPL scheme in partnership with BA CityFlyer, also utilise computerised pilot aptitude testing to assess prospective candidates.

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.
BA Cityflyer may recruit directly, or may outsource the assessment and subsequent recruitment of pilot candidates to organisations such as FTE Jerez, CAE Oxford Aviation Academy or L3 Harris.
In the event that you are being assessed by FTE Jerez as part of the MAPS (Mentored Airline Pilot Scheme), please read our Knowledgebase article on BA Cityflyer MAPS (Mentored Airline Pilot Scheme) 2022 to aid your preparation for assessment.
In the event that you are being assessed by CAE Oxford Aviation Academy, please read our Knowledgebase article on CAE Oxford Aviation Academy to aid your preparation for assessment.
In the event that you are being assessed by L3 Harris, please read our Knowledgebase article on L3 Harris to aid your preparation for assessment.
The online preparation software provided by PilotAptitudeTest.com has previously been used by a number of BA CityFlyer candidates to great benefit and has also been used by those BA Cityflyer candidates assessed by FTE Jerez, CAE Oxford Aviation Academy and L3 Harris. Both routes to assessment require the successful completion of a computerised pilot aptitude test, and thus candidates should use the online preparation software provided by PilotAptitudeTest.com to prepare for assessment.
