ACA SYMBIOTICS
 
Dear Aspiring Pilots,

Many have written in to ask about how airlines select aspiring pilots for the ab initio (fresh student without any flying experience) program using the ADAPT system. I have been able to get a brief sample of the BIO SYMBIOTIC program (see video above) for your reference and guidance.

From ACA SYMBIOTICS - The FAST test is part of the ACA Pilot Assessment Process: This Module takes approximately 15 minutes to complete.

You will be required to:

- Follow verbal and written instructions
- Monitor a cockpit view and flight path
- Fly a 'crash' course
- Answer cognitive questions. The types of cognitive questions you will be asked are:
- Numerical Reasoning
- Verbal Reasoning
- Abstract Reasoning
- Perceptual Speed and Accuracy
- Spatial Relationship Reasoning
- Working Memory

Investment in flying to become an airline pilot is a very expensive endeavour for those without financial assistance. It is also very competitive and unless you excel in the aptitude test, your dream may be a long way off. Therefore, unless you are selected by an airline that guarantees you a flying job, you have to think very carefully whether it is worth your time and money to pursue this profession privately.

In Malaysia, the Director General of the Department of Civil Aviation stated recently that, “There is not much change in the unemployment rate of pilots in Malaysia since last year”

Further, the number of unemployed licensed pilots as of August 2012 stood at 1,174. He said the employment of pilots like any other profession in the world would be based on the supply and demand in the job market and the excess was noticeable since 2011 and soared last year when many of them made complaints to the DCA.

I wish you all the best.
