Can I become a pilot?
Do you have “pilot DNA” running through your veins? It’s made up of 3 major elements: knowledge, skills, and attitude. You should already have some basic knowledge and skills: more specifically, a thorough knowledge of maths, science, and languages, i.e. secondary education (general or technical education). As a pilot, you’ll also need a specific set of skills related to hand-eye coordination, stress resistance, and 3D insight, all of which will be tested in our COMPASS test. Finding the right attitude is up to you: as a pilot, you’ll be evaluated constantly throughout your life, so a healthy dose of self-criticism is essential. Punctuality is another vital element in your career, and that goes for your flight training as well. Pilots should also be team players: your fellow students and future colleagues and crew are not your competitors, but your teammates. A healthy sense of duty and respect for authority and rules are part of the right attitude as well.
