Pilot Assessment
In All Degrees

PILOT-360 is the most efficient and cost effective way to ensure the psychometric ability of a candidate for successful training and a successful airline career.

Competence Based Pilot Assessment

The pilot competencies, developed by EASA and ICAO, that every professional pilot, regardless of his or her role, should develop during training and deploy throughout this professional career are:

Application of

Application of procedures and compliance with regulations


Aeroplane flight path management, automation

Aeroplane flight path management, manual control

Leadership and

Problem solving and decision making

Situation awareness and management of information


When measuring pilot aptitude, PILOT-360 uses the following measuring dimensions, which are all directly related to the nine pilot competencies listed above.

English language proficiency

As an indispensable ingredient to communicate and ensure learning facilitation and global pilot mobility.

Basic mental abilities

Components are: memory capacity, speed and accuracy of information processing (perception, classification, transformation), spatial abilities (static), technical comprehension, reasoning (information processing with basic figures), logic abilities, long-term concentration.

Composite mental abilities
Components are: allocation of attention, multi-tasking (different tasks combined), psycho motor abilities (pursuit tracking; compensatory tracking), spatial abilities (dynamic).
Operational abilities

Components are: problem solving and decision-making, workload management, situation awareness and management of information.

Social-interpersonal abilities

Components are: communication, leadership and teamwork.

Personality traits

Components are: professionalism (professional motivation, self-discipline, self-criticism, self-organization, safety motivation, stress-coping with social confrontation, information load, time pressure), and application of procedures and compliance with regulations.

Why PILOT-360?

PILOT-360 is highly effective and cost efficient. When correctly implemented, PILOT-360 can contribute to cost savings for the flight school or airline while selecting the most suitable candidates. Experience has shown that the costs associated with implementing a pilot aptitude testing system are significantly lower than the consequences of high failure rates resulting from immature selection or screening processes.

About PILOT-360

Safety is our industry’s number one priority, and accident prevention critical. Being a professional pilot is a very demanding role and is directly linked to the safety of an airline’s passengers and its financial health. To increase operational safety, the civil aviation training community has globally started to shift from the traditional task-based training to competency-based training and assessment. This is where PILOT-360 was formed.
