Overview

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.

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.

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, please read our Knowledgebase article on FTE Jerez 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.

Mimicking tasks within a jet aircraft, Aspects assesses and enhances candidate ability in spatial awareness by incorporating aural statements and visual imagery.
MultiTasker
Encompassing multiple tasks in to one activity, MultiTasker assesses and enhances candidate ability in multi-tasking, hand-to-eye coordination and selective attention
Control
Control assesses and enhances candidate ability in hand-to-eye coordination and selective attention using multiple control axes and visual cues.
Command
Incorporating control and acknowledgment of cues, Command assesses and enhances multi-tasking, selective attention and hand-to-eye coordination skills.
Tracking
Tracking assesses and enhances candidate multi-tasking and hand-to-eye coordination skills with the use of two control axes controlled by opposing inputs.
Guidance
Tasking the candidate with controlling multiple intermittently changing datums, Guidance assesses and enhances selective attention and hand-to-eye coordination skills.
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.
Mental Mathematics
Our mathematics database, organised in to easy, medium and hard difficulties, accurately mimics the questions posed in a large majority of pilot aptitude tests.
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.
