The Complete Pilot Selection Handbook is a valuable reference book for all pilots. This book is designed for anyone who is considering becoming a pilot, cadets and even those who are already Captains. Every pilot must go through a selection process before they can join an airline, or even a flight Academy.
Why? Because not everyone will fit the bill, so to speak. When a company is preparing to spend thousands of dollars in training, they want to ensure candidates will be successful. Reputable flight academies have a rigorous selection process that filters out those who might fail. Who else must endure this process? The Cabin Crew. While the door is open to everyone, not all will walk through it.
This book provides readers with details surrounding all phases of the pilot selection. Some of the included topics are the initial interview, psychometrics, group exercises, simulator, core competencies required, and the final interview.
Captain Michel Treskin, co-author and pilot, has interviewed over 15,000 pilots to discover that only 30-40% completely passed the selection. This book will provide anyone interested in becoming a pilot the fighting chance for success.
