Airline Pilot Assessment

Airline Pilot Assessment

How our assessment process works

Wings Alliance Airline Pilot Assessment mirrors the style of real airline selection, and is conducted by a team of current airline trainers and specialist staff.

It tests your performance against criteria employers are looking for, and it consists of three phases:

  1. We will ask you to record and upload a personal statement and complete some online testing before attending the second phase.
  2. The live-online phase consists of an interview, a briefing exercise, and some more tests.  During the online assessment you’ll also have the opportunity to chat to a Wings Alliance training advisor about your training plans and the benefits of Wings Alliance membership.  You will be needed for about 2-3 hours.
  3. The final phase is normally conducted as part of our APS-MCC – the final day of training will help you prepare for your hopefully imminent airline applications and selection and consists of a group exercise, another interview, and training in how to best present yourself.  Sometimes we will suggest that you do this phase earlier to give you more time before your airline assessment to practice the techniques we will teach you.

After the second and third phases we will give you direct and honest feedback.  Unlike training providers who use their assessment or ‘selection’ as part of their sales process, we have nothing to gain whether you decide to train or not, and, if you do, whether you train with us or not.  So we have no incentive to encourage you in one direction or another.  Therefore, you can trust our opinion as unbiased.  We aim to provide you with the information to make informed choices, and the training to enable you to present yourself in the best light when you eventually face airline selection.

Why choose our airline pilot assessment?

  • You will be able to make an informed decision whether this is the right career choice for you – before you have spent time and money on training.
  • The process will give you experience and confidence – you won’t be going into your first airline selection process ‘cold’.
  • We will help you develop the competencies required of an airline pilot – increasing your performance in training and chances of selection by an airline.
