Prior to selection, all shortlisted candidates are required to complete a skills assessment test (SAT) facilitated by CAE Australia Flight Training at Moorabbin Airport.
It is a computer-based aptitude test consisting of psychometric testing, hand-eye coordination, motor skills, spatial awareness, ability to manage a dynamic environment, and personality type. SAT sessions will be held prior and during the selection round. A non-refundable fee is payable prior to taking the test.
Although not an entry requirement, students must also satisfy the statutory Class 1 medical requirements of the Civil Aviation Safety Authority if undertaking practical flying training to commercial level.
