Safety and Human Performance

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.

 

The majority of accidents are caused by human error as the growth of technological advancements accelerates, the need for Pilot Aptitude Test (PAT) across the dimensions of performance potential, social interaction, and personality traits is undisputed.

Measuring Pilot Potential in Potential Pilots

Our PAT aligns with the latest International Air Transport Association (IATA) guidance material and best practices within aviation.

 

To gain an understanding of your potential success in the training pipeline, we assess your aptitude (English language proficiency, basic mental abilities, composite mental abilities, operational abilities, social-interpersonal abilities, and personality traits) to ensure you are the right fit for the role before you invest in your pilot training.

8 Core Competencies for Flight Crew

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

  • Communications

  • Workload management

  • Leadership and teamwork

  • Problem solving and decision making

  • Aeroplane flight path management - manual

  • Aeroplane flight path management - automation

  • Situational awareness and management of information

  • Application of procedures and compliance with regulations

Do You Have What It Takes?

PAT is to find out whether the abilities and traits necessary to develop those competencies are inherent in your character.

Assessment fees: S$247.53 per candidate.

All You Need To Know

What is not tested?


In an online assessment, it is difficult to determine some interpersonal skills, such as how willing you are to help or how you get on with people. These areas will be determined in group exercises and interview.




How are individual tests structured?


At the start, a short introduction describes exercises or questions. This is followed by an interactive section in which the test is explained in greater detail and the actions you need to take (e.g. click or drag and drop) are demonstrated. You will need to follow the specific action outlined in order to move on to the next part of the instructions. Therefore, you will be clear about what is required and how to do it. To ensure that you have understood what needs to be done, and to prepare you for the test itself, you will be asked to complete a few example questions or exercises. After completing the examples, the most important points regarding the test are summarised.




What type of computer do I need?


Any computer can be used - PC or MAC. You simply need a stable internet connection, a browser, and working speakers/headset. It is best to use one of the newer browser versions. For optimal viewing of the online assessment, we recommend that you set your screen to a resolution of at least 1024 x 768 pixels.




Do I need any other equipment?


For some of the tests, it is useful to have a calculator or pen and paper. The introductory notes will let you know if any further equipment is needed.




Is specific prior knowledge or experience required?


No.




What can I do to counter nervousness?


Getting nervous does not automatically make you a nervous person. Being nervous is related to a situation - in this case, taking an online assessment. You know that you are expected to perform, but the performance might not be as good as you want. Remind yourself that nervousness is absolutely normal. A certain amount of pre-test nerves has a very positive effect: it channels your attention and mobilises your energy. You will probably feel a little better when you know what to expect.




When should I take the test?


If you know that you best perform in the evening or at night, there is no reason why you should not complete the test at that time. The most important thing to remember is to complete the test when you feel well and alert and are not likely to be disturbed. Do not complete the test when you come home from work or school, feel tired, or after doing strenuous exercise.




How long does an online assessment take?


You will need to complete 10 tests and most tests do not last longer than 15 minutes. It should not take more than 2 hours.




Can I take breaks?


Once you have started a test, you cannot interrupt it. Please ensure that you are not disturbed during this period. You do not have to complete all of them at once. You will be given a few days to complete all the necessary tests - but please check the deadline given to you for the final submission of the tests. The amount of time you need to complete all the tests is not monitored and has no effect on the results.




What do I do if a test suddenly does not respond?


In rare cases, technical problems can lead to the test suddenly freezing up. For example, if the browser crashes while you are working on the test. However, this is not a catastrophe. Simply contact us at pat@reviongroundschool.com




How do you know that I completed the online assessment myself?


First of all, you should be aware that it is never permitted to allow somebody else to complete the tests for you.

If you are invited to do the online assessment for the purpose of admission to Revion's programmes and if this should come to light, you would be automatically excluded from the selection process. Also, re-tests are often carried out at a later stage. This means that, if you are invited to the assessment centre after the online assessment, you may be asked to repeat a module from the online assessment. Clearly, if you have not completed the test before, as you wanted to inflate your scores with someone else completing it for you, you will struggle to do this at the re-test stage.




How fast do I have to work in order to pass the online assessment?


Try to answer the questions quickly but carefully. Avoid making obvious mistakes by not working faster than you did at school or during your studies. Incorrect answers tend to affect the overall results negatively so any avoidable errors can affect the final result to your detriment.




What happens after the online assessment?


If you are invited to do the online assessment for the purpose of admission to Revion's programmes, we will be in touch shortly to inform you about the next steps. If everything went well, you will be invited to the assessment centre.




Do I get feedback?


Each of the tests generates a feedback report that provides a thorough and meaningful explanation of the results. We will make this report available to you via email.
