Arrange an Assessment

Our integrated assessment consists of two parts:

1) Psychometric and Aptitude Testing which can be completed online at home. Practice is recommended to familiarise yourself to the style of questions asked. Contact one of our training advisors for more information at enquiries@afta.ie.

2) Simulator assessment and interview which are held Monday to Friday in our academy. Preparation is key.

The CUT-E Test

When you contact one of our training advisors you will be emailed a link to complete this section of the assessment at home. This is a computerised pilot screening system which assesses work related behaviour, situational behaviour, deductive-logical thinking, inductive-logical thinking, spatial orientation, reaction speed, monitoring ability, multi-tasking capabilities and complex control.

The Simulator Test

After a short briefing you will be instructed to perform some basic manoeuvres. This is to see your ability to handle aircraft, your learning curve, management and capacity.

The Interview

This part of the process is an opportunity for you to tell us why you would like to join the Fully Integrated GlobeAir Pilot Training Programme.

The instructors want to be sold on your commitment and dedication towards the training and career. You will be tested on your technical and non-technical skills.

Non- technical skills include areas such as communication, leadership and decision making. Technical skills would include, basic knowledge of aircraft systems, principles of flight. There will also be some mental math’s questions included here.
