Aptitude Testing Practice – Symbiotics

ADAPT Online Pilot Aptitude Testing

Partnered with FlightDeckFriend.com

Pilot Aptitude testing is a very important element in the pilot recruitment process. They are designed to allow the assessor to gain an understanding of an applicant’s potential to succeed in both the training process and ultimately in their role as a pilot, prior to any specific training taking place. Airlines use Pilot Aptitude Testing to identify suitable candidates and predict future success.

Prior to your pilot aptitude test, taking online practice tests can help you familiarise yourself with the pilot aptitude testing process, helping you to lower test anxiety and help you to achieve your true capability. We have teamed up with Symbiotics to offer you practice bundles allowing you to take advantage of substantial savings and practice the ADAPT tests used by airlines and training organisations across the globe.

During the early stages of the challenging path to becoming a pilot, you will be required to pass a number of aptitude tests (sometimes referred to as psychometric tests). These tests have been specially designed to demonstrate that you have both the aptitude and traits to be successful in both the training to be a pilot and your career as a pilot.

Our partners Symbiotics are the owners and only providers of the genuine suite of ADAPT pilot aptitude tests that are used by flight training organisations, airlines and business jet operators in over 50 countries around the world. The ADAPT solution is used by these organisations to predict your future performance as defined by ICAO’s pilot competencies.

The assessments are designed to measure specific skills and aptitudes including Psychomotor skills, Cognitive skills, Problem Solving and Decision-Making skills. Tests include

  • Maths Test
  • Physics Test
  • Cognitive Reasoning Test
  • FAST Practice Test
  • Co-Ordination Test
  • ADAPT Personality Questionnaire
  • Aviation Interview Practice (online)

All of Symbiotics tests have been created by a team of experienced psychologists using genuine and authentic measures.

It may not always be obvious how best to prepare as airlines and training schools do not always provide details of the specific aptitude tests you will undertake during the assessment process. This being said, however, in our experience most assessments follow similar subjects so we recommend practicing the following tests to improve your chance of being successful: Maths, Physics, Cognitive Reasoning, English, Multi-Tasking (FAST) and Hand-Eye Co-Ordination.

Symbiotics have grouped these key practice tests into bundles that include 3 month access to multiple online ADAPT practice tests, featuring immediate reporting and personalised revision guidance notes.
