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.

Virgin Atlantic utilises an online computerised pilot aptitude test to assess candidates as part of their application process for direct-entry pilots.

The online preparation software provided by PilotAptitudeTest.com has been traditionally used by a substantial number of candidates being assessed by this type of computerised pilot aptitude test at a variety of different airlines and flight training organisations.

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 CEB.
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 CEB.
Verbal Reasoning 1
Our verbal reasoning content, organised by excerpt, accurately mimics the questions posed in a large majority of pilot aptitude and psychometric tests, including CEB/SHL, Talent Q, COMPASS and Cut-E.
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.
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
Guidance
Tasking the candidate with controlling multiple intermittently changing datums, Guidance assesses and enhances selective attention and hand-to-eye coordination skills.
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.
Bearings
Bearings assesses user understanding of their position in physical space, known as spatial awareness, using common flight instruments.
Flight Director
This highly accurate test simultaneously assesses and enhances multi-tasking, hand-to-eye coordination and memory capacity skills.
Adjust
A challenging activity, Adjust assesses multi-tasking, spatial awareness, hand-to-eye coordination, selective attention and mental mathematic skills.
Memory
Memory assesses selective attention and memory capacity skills, tasking the candidate with efficiently memorising and inputting four sets of data repeatedly.
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.
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.
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.
Science
Our science database, organised in to easy, medium and hard difficulties, mimics the questions posed in a large majority of pilot aptitude tests. Feedback provided on answers.
