Over the last few years the aviation industry has reevaluated the core competencies an ideal airline pilot should have.
Besides technical skills airlines have started to put very strong emphasis on the personality, interpersonal skills and psychometric capabilities of their personnel.
These competencies are now evaluated during flight school entry assessments, during pilot training (like KSA100 in the ATPL(A) theory course) and throughout the pilot job interview and selection process.
Due to the EASA decision and Commission Regulation (EU) from 2021 it is not only recommended but mandatory for all airline crew to complete a psychological assessment before commencing line flying. That means European flight schools and airlines will have to check if candidates are suitable for becoming a pilot.
MyWingman can provide you with complex support if you want to start your education as a student pilot, you want to improve your chances of getting a job in an airline or you wish to implement or improve the selection procedures in your company.
I am an EAAP certified Senior Aviation Psychologist, KSA100 assessment specialist and Ground Training Instructor.
I have wide experience in European assessments and selection of student pilots, cadets and active pilots (FO's, CPT's) gained in numerous studies and through working with a range of airlines and training organisations. I have conducted and designed psychological parts of airline assessments, and tools dedicated for pilots. I am trained to conduct assessments using batteries of tests like COMPASS (EPST), ADAPT (Symbiotics) or the Vienna Test System (SCHUHFRIED)
" Throughout my career in the aviation industry I have met hundreds of pilots and many HR and selection specialists. I know how hard it is first to start the flight training, to get qualified as a commercial pilot and then to successfully navigate through the complicated pilot job selection procedures.
All this made me realise there is no professional support for pilots provided by an expert in the field of aviation psychology. I created MyWingman for pilots to assist them throughout their journey and improve their chances of landing their dream job."
