Headquartered at Hong Kong International Airport, Cathay Pacific is the flag carrier of Hong Kong operating international scheduled passenger and cargo services. The airline recruits both qualified and unqualified (ab-initio) pilots. Cathay Pacific utilises a computerised pilot aptitude test to assess pilot candidates.
For more information, please visit www.cathaypacific.com.
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.
Cathay Pacific utilises a computerised pilot aptitude test to assess pilot candidates prior to recruitment. ATPL knowledge has also previously been assessed by this airline during the recruitment of pilots who have completed the ATPL syllabus and have obtained a CPL and/or CPL IR.
The online preparation software provided by PilotAptitudeTest.com will provide great benefit to candidates attending an assessment with Cathay Pacific. PilotAptitudeTest.com also provides a database of ATPL questions at additional cost to subscribers which Cathay Pacific candidates will find beneficial.
It should be noted that since our inception in 2012, a substantial number of Cathay Pacific candidates have used the online preparation software provided by PilotAptitudeTest.com.
