Cadet Pilot Interview Question Database

Our Cadet Pilot Interview Question Database has helped hundreds of aspiring pilots successfully pass flight training school and mentored airline pilot cadet program interviews. With intense competition for places on airline pilot cadet programs, it’s essential that you are thoroughly prepared for your selection day. You need to put in hours of work beforehand, to ensure that you stand out from the rest.

Please note that our Cadet Pilot Interview Question Database is the same document as our Pilot Interview Question Database. The document is suitable for interview preparation for all levels of pilots, whether prospective or current. Some questions will clearly be more relevant than others, but it is an exceptional tool to help you prepare for your cadet pilot interview.

Why Choose Our Cadet Pilot Interview Database?

You can expect a multitude of HR/Competency and Motivational questions as well as a basic level of technical questioning.

It consists of over 350 questions including both competency and technical based. It has been created by recruiters who have specifically conducted Cadet Pilot interviews.
