The Cadet Pilot Program for Air Asia India was introduced in June 2019. Fundamentally, it is one of the most cost- and quality-conscious cadet pilot programmes currently in operation in India.
Nationality –Must be an OCI card holder or have Indian nationality.
Age –The applicant must be between the ages of 18 and 32 on the day that the application is submitted.
Education –Attained a minimum cumulative score of 51% in Physics, Mathematics, and English in the 10+2 or graduated in Physics, Mathematics, or Engineering.
Medicals –Be in good physical condition and be in possession of a current, unrestricted Indian Class 1 Medical certificate.
Stage 1 – Suitability
Education, personality, medical history, and work preferences all play a role in suitability. At this point, Air Asia collaborated with Harrison, a talent management firm, to conduct personality assessments. This is the first stage of evaluation, and it takes about 30 minutes to an hour to complete the questions. This is a personality test that is not technical in nature.
Stage 2 – Proficiency
The second stage focuses on proficiency and includes verbal and language comprehension, mathematical skill, critical thinking, and psychological screening. The second stage is split into two sections:
Quantitative Critical Thinking & Personality Assessment Screener Test.
Quantitative Critical Thinking is a simultaneous equation maths test developed by the Harrison team to assess candidates’ comprehension, justification, decisiveness, and critical thinking. There is a time limit for answering as many questions as possible. Candidates begin the test at the most basic level, which is straightforward. The difficulty level gradually increases with each correct answer, and the time allowed to answer each question also increases with the difficulty level. When you reach Level 10, you’ll have 12 minutes to answer each question. If you don’t respond within the allotted time, the system automatically moves on to the next question.
Use the time provided for each question wisely, and double-check your answers, as the system will halt you if you don’t get the question right three times in a row.
The Harrison Test and the Personality Assessment Screener Test are comparable. Simple statements that you must either agree with or reject. If you respond truthfully, you will be able to go on.
Stage 3 – Aptitude
The third stage focuses on aptitude, which includes memory, multitasking, spatial orientation, and hand-eye coordination. The three components of this stage are the psychomotor, spatial orientation, and physics test.
You will be called to proceed to this level after two to three weeks if you passed the preceding two (2) phases.
Your ability to multitask and coordinate your hands and eyes is examined in the psychomotor domain. A Primary Task and several Secondary Tasks need to be finished in the specified time.
As an illustration, imagine that your primary duty is to maintain a cross using a joystick, and your secondary tasks are to recall numbers, do simple math problems, type numbers that appear on your screen, or respond to instructions coming via your headset.
A little tip: You will have 2 to 3 minutes of practise time before the test; utilise it well to familiarise yourself with the format.
Stage 4 – Personal Interview
Interviews with Indigo staff in a panel or one-on-one.
Note: We provide Hands on Simulator + Joystick practice till the student is confident in handling them with ease.
