Good Stuff

Well done to all those who passed the Aptitudes on Thursday...psychometric awaits..go for it..practice drawing straight lines using both hands now..and think of all the creative things you can make out of just crooked lines,bent lines etc..and see how many letter 's' can you right in 6 seconds,9 and 13 seconds,in reverse and the two combines..more like S2S2S2..

captainpilot, i recieved my e-mail on 18th and they even took the liberty of calling. skills kevo thenx alot for the heads up. are there specific fieldz they will test us on as it was in the 1st aplitude test? for those going for their 1st aplitude on the 22nd they basicaly test how fast and accurate you are. but dont attempt questions you dont know. they have five fieldz they will test you on, that is: mathematics, instrumentation, mechanical reasoning, general science and shape identification. they are very easy questions you should not worry, the only paper i would like to point out is the general paper. it entails of chemistry and physics questions learnt in high school. such as the effect of acid on litmus paper. all the best guys and say a prayer. it helps

Pyschometric Test

The psychometric test is a Morrisby profile test(there are free samples from google)The tests include:determining the patterns of coloured beads,maths(sequences and series)verbal reasoning(like writing down things that are made of wood and are round,things with flat surface etc.)mechanical reasoning,pulleys,stability of loads,which fluid cools faster in various containers with different surface areas...each sections will take 15-30 minutes.You probably won't finish any sections unless you're super fast but the most important thing is to try and maximize your score by getting full marks in the questions you manage to attempt.Its a test which tests your level of speed,accuracy and thinking.Cheers.

Yes I already got my email on 2/21 they just need me to scan in all my info, but not sure if I'm sending the correct American equivalent would be for the following:

O Level Certificate- American High School Diploma also have Bachelor of Science in Aviation Science.

Performance A- High Performance & Complex Engine endorsement in logbook

Gas Turbines- I have completed extensive coursework through the Aviation Science degree program and have research experience with a Pratt Whitney Turbine Engine.

Kenyan CPL with Instrument Rating- FAA CPL MEL/SEL & Instrument Rating

Confirm Total Flight Hours- Logbook my total time is at 286.4 flight hours and only 6 hours of that is sim time.

Can someone please assist, I'm really excited about this opportunity and want to make sure that my application is complete.
