Stage 1 and Stage 2 are done remotely, from home. The 360 test is quite hard, the questions are harder than what you do in the practice. And for stage 2, the psychometric test, there were around 300 questions and some more math and visual memory tests.

Thank you so much! 🙏🏽
Hi, Stefana!
Whereas I cannot answer your question, I myself have a question for you 😄: when did your brother took the stage 2 test? I took it also 1 week ago and still didnít get any response.

Ah, I understand. It is very short notice, quite difficult to arrange the logistics and prepare for the next stage, especially if you work full time.

A little help

Hi, I was pre-selected by wizz air and I have to do the final exam (the one that takes 400 min). I already did all the 60 min test.
I was hoping that someone here that did the final test can elaborate the 13 segments of the test.

Hi, some information which might be useful for everybody:
Trener Flight Academy will be the only flight school available for the Wizz Air Pilot Academy and Wizz Air She Can Fly programs in 2024. The class sizes at Trener will be increased to provide the same capacity as for the previous years with two available flight schools so do not worry about this!

Planned course dates have been confirmed for Early March, Mid-June and Mid-October!

Stage 1 and 2 online screening is continuous, Stage 3 and 4 assessments take place in Budapest (1-2 dates/Month are expected to be organized). Response time from Wizz can vary after Stage 1/2 tests as the evaluation process needs some time but do not afraid everybody will get the results. For the length of contracting it is advisable (but not mandatory) to attend the assessment not later than 2 Months prior your preferred course start date.

Good luck for the application!

The Stage 3 (group exercise) results are presented on the spot, only those who pass will attend Stage 4 (interview). If you complete the interview standard time of reviewing and response about the results of the whole assessment is 2 weeks. Be aware at Stage 4 recruiters evaluating the whole picture of the candidate so if you had some smaller issues at previous stages but passed (i.e. lower score on Math/Phisics on Testair) you can expect some additional questions regarding those fields.

Hi everyone, I'm a seventeen year old student and I'm still attending high school in italy, but as soon as I graduate I would like to try to get into the cadet program. I have a few questions for you and for the more experienced that I hope you can answer:1. Does Wizz Air accept Italian candidates? 2. What do the tests consist in and which are the sites where I can practice? 3. what are the physics and mathematics topics usually asked and that you must know? 4 If I don't pass the selections, is it possible to try again? And if so, is there a time period to respect before applying again?
Like you I have a great passion for aviation and this cadet program means a lot to me, so I beg anyone who knows anything to reply. Thank you all in advance for your help.​​​​​​​

Hey Stefana, thanks for your info. I was wondering what Stage 2 was like im a bit more depth, do you have any example of the maths? Was it like mental arithmetic? Also with the visual memory stuff, do you have any examples of that? Sorry for stressing! Was it hard overall? Thank you

Hello Guys, I'm Simone. I'd like to start the selection for WAPA. Are Italian candidates permitted to start the programme, or only the eastern people?
Also, I want to know from the people who have already done Stage 1 and Stage 2:
1. Do you recommend/have tried SkyTest, LatestPilotJobs and PASS assessment softwares? Were them useful for Stage 1?
2. What kind of questions were there in the psychological test, phase 2? Are they like the psychological questions you are asked in medical class 1, for example?
Let me know asap please. Thank you!

Did you attend stage3/4? Would you be able to share more information on scenarios, questions, what to expect? We have the assessment on the 10th Jan.

Stage 2 wasnít very hard, you have a lot of personality questions, Iíd say anything between 200-300 of them. For the math questions, nothing too complicated -you had a screen were you had to navigate an airplane based on some commands, to calculate some easy math questions - the trick was that you have to do all at the same time, your attention has to be distributed in several parts of the screen. After you finish this, there are some questions on what you saw while you were flying the plane. Not complicated, but just need to be really focused. You do this exercise twice, I guess the idea is to improve from the first attempt.

The average completion ratio for the program is higher than 95%. If you pass the selection process you have a very high chance that you will be able to complete the program but it is still an intense "University-alike" course with weekly 5 days of study at school and then further study at home. Thus the general core reasons among unsuccessful cadets are behavioural issues, lack of motivation, concentration or not enought effort on studying for a consecutive 18-21 month.

As it is the mutual interest of every parties (cadet-flight school-Wizz) to complete the training for the enrolled candidates all support is given if a cadet faces some difficulties during training and there is always 2nd chance provided on internal checks. Till today every student who was able to complete the training according to the required standards was hired by Wizz Air.
