Disclaimer: We hereby notify you that there is no express or implied affiliation or endorsement between the organisation listed below and, and that information herein is provided on an as is basis with no guarantees made for accuracy.

Cut-E was founded in 2002 by Andreas Lohff and Dr Achim Preuss and employs today more than 250 professionals worldwide.

Undertaking 12 million assessments each year in over 70 countries, Cut-E is a world leader in the design and implementation of innovative online tests, questionnaires and gamified assessments for recruitment, selection and development.

In early 2017, Cut-E was purchased by Aon, and subsequently you may be asked to undertake either an Aon or Cut-E assessment – they are both the same.

Cut-E has created a plethora of different assessment modules that can be tied together as part one large solution to assess candidates for a particular job role.

Cut-E have been known to provide cloud-based online assessment solutions to some organisations operating within the airline industry.

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.

In particular, the Cut-E online assessment solution can be utilised by an organisation such as an airline or a flying school to analyse specific areas of ability that they may require for a job role.

The Cut-E assessment of pilots tends to incorporate the analysis of numerical reasoning, verbal reasoning, deductive-logical thinking, inductive-logical thinking, spatial awareness, multi-tasking, reaction speed, memory capacity, complex control (hand-to-eye coordination) and the ability to concentrate and/or monitor.

Given that the Cut-E assessment is an online assessment solution, pilots candidates are typically invited to participate in assessment by way of an email containing an invitation. In some circumstances, pilot candidates may be required to participate in further activities in a second phase to verify their competence.

Activities suitable for Cut-E (Aon) Test Preparation

The Cut-E psychometric test that you are likely to face at assessment with an airline will assess abilities such as spatial awareness, numerical reasoning, verbal reasoning, technical reasoning and manipulating abstract or logical symbols within diagrammatic reasoning (also known as visual reasoning) tests.

We recommend using the content shown below to tailor your preparation specifically for the Cut-E psychometric test.

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 assesses and enhances candidate ability in hand-to-eye coordination and selective attention using multiple control axes and visual cues.
Encompassing multiple tasks in to one activity, MultiTasker assesses and enhances candidate ability in multi-tasking, hand-to-eye coordination and selective attention
Perspectives assesses and enhances spatial awareness, tasking the candidate with matching sets of multicoloured cylinders orientated in to different perspectives.
Switch establishes an understanding of memory capacity and selective attention skills, tasking the candidate with efficiently acknowledging change.
Orientation assesses spatial awareness and selective attention skills, by tasking candidates with identifying friend or foe aircraft.
Bearings assesses user understanding of their position in physical space, known as spatial awareness, using common flight instruments.
A challenging activity, Adjust assesses multi-tasking, spatial awareness, hand-to-eye coordination, selective attention and mental mathematic skills.
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.
Multi-tasking activity with three different activities which must be monitored and successfully completed simultaneously. Horizontal and vertical control mode are provided for practice.
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.
