Orals

Thanks for that Information. Maybe AIFA wants to/already has a contract with KQ for Pilot Training. Those successful may be split and go for training in different schools rather than, for example, 43 only.

From their Facebook page, AIFA seems to be a new school and they have new planes. They have been training Chinese cadets and they want to expand their training portfolio.

On another note: what was the purpose of those tests? They caught us off guard.

Careful Magnate, the rules of this forum are that you must speak in English only. You might find yourself blocked if you carry on..

From what i perceive, the first one (the pictures) just tested your perception about situations, your interpretation of them and your ability to express both. For the computer ones, the first one (aeroplane with three axes) tested your mechanical reasoning and the second one tested your memory

Oral Interviews Update

I thank God that KQ have honoured their promise to communicate by today. They have said they will communicate next week since they have not yet received the interview results so let's practice patience

AB Initio Aptitude Test

Hi Everyone,

Just got the email a couple hours ago. Have been following this forum for over a year now and am glad I can finally be appart of it lol.

Scheduled for the 22nd at 730am dunno how my mind is gonna be working at that time for an aptitude test but looking forward to it and to meeting everyone whose going to be there.

I have read the earlier posts but does anyone have a book or tests that would prepare us as I have not taken an aptitude test before.

Thanks,

Direct Entry

For those going for the interviews-direct entry, we wish you all the best. I wonder if you will be taking the same tests like we did in the earlier stages.

For the rest, we hope KQ will communicate early in the week to avoid undue anxiety.

All the best to everyone. May God be with us.

Aptitude test

Hi guys? I have been invited for the aptitude test on 22nd February, but I happened to lose my original Identity card last week, could I use a coloured photocopy of it together with waiting card plus a police abstract?
