The demands placed on individuals in technically diverse roles continues to evolve at an ever increasingly fast pace. However, aptitude and ability tests used to select individuals into these roles haven’t.

Until Now.

Our tests are brand new to market and offer something beyond traditional pilot testing methods.

We work with industry leading experts, Eikonika & Psytech and supply aptitude and ability testing that have been designed specifically for technical roles in the aviation industry. The tests can be used to help select both ab-initio and fully qualified pilots as well as R-PAS pilots, Air Traffic Controllers and other technical roles. All our tests are set in the aviation context and therefore act as an excellent realistic job preview for candidates.

Turn Key Solutions Available.
