The first important step in becoming an airline pilot is our extensive screening procedure.

Skywings Pilot Screening

Our screening procedure is thorough by design. This way, you get a clear view of your future chances of success, not just in regards to graduating as a professional pilot, but also for any job interviews at an airline. Find out more about our screening procedure on the selection procedure page.

What should you expect?

We select the right candidates through our screening procedure. After all, a successful airline pilot needs to be able to develop their “pilot DNA”: a combination of knowledge, skills, and attitude. That is why we’ll test your motivation, attitude, and self-reflection on top of your knowledge and skills.

For our final decision, we’ll look at your results as a whole, meaning one bad test won’t automatically mean you’ve failed. As of now, about half of our candidates pass their entrance exams.

The screening procedure takes about 3 days in total

What impressed me immediately on my first day, was the staff’s professionalism and especially their motivation. With decades of experience working in commercial airlines, each and every instructor is able to transform students into professional, skilled pilots. By communicating openly, they’ve managed to create the perfect atmosphere that both stimulates hard work and allows students to really enjoy each flight. They’re the best school around!

Ever since I first contacted Skywings, I noticed their highly professional, direct, and expert way of communicating. Throughout the training, their expert instructors make sure students feel appreciated and prepare them, step by step, for the professional pilot’s life. And they even go to the extra mile by offering professional guidance while you’re out hunting for your first job in a cockpit.

I enjoyed my Skywings training a lot. They don’t just offer best-in-class training, but professional guidance by airport industry players as well. They make you feel appreciated and give you the chance to develop yourself and to become the best version of yourself, both professionally and personally. There’s a relaxed atmosphere, where you can just be yourself in a fun, friendly environment.
