Hi there,

Yeah thanks Localiser for the lowdown on the BA selection.

I must say, I was shocked to see the amount of tests BA put you through. It's quite scary to go out and spend >40K and 2000-3000hrs later get nocked down at the selection. I don't think they even gave as many tests for the trainee CEP scheme.

What percentage of pilots are successful at this selection?

Do BA consider each test as the same level of importance. For instance, would they say the MicroPAT test more important than the verbal/numerical reasoning tests and possibly the interview as the most important?

I would understand BA giving these tests to 18-28 year old sponsored cadets but not to guys who have went out, spent the money and proved they can fly a boeing /airbus!
