Cool GAPF Test

Hi people,
Has anyone taken the GAPF test required to join Intercockpit. It seems that this test is more difficult compared to the PILAPT or COMPASS test methods used in the U.K.
I would like to hear from peoples experiences

The gapf test is not that difficult if you're reasonably intelligent, a nice person, and able to work in a team. It's got a lot to do whether you're suited to becoming a pilot. There's little you can do if you aren't up to it.

The test is made up of 3 parts, an intelligence test, a motor skills test and then a personality test. In the intelligence and motor skills test, your ability to concentrate is also tested. The personality test is quite varied, but so some extent tests to see what you'll do if you're stressed/tired, whether you the type who likes to argue, which is dangerous in a cockpit. Remember there are maps in a plane, so there are going to be arguments :-)

Either way, there's not that much preparation that you can put into it, other than a few hours of ms flight sim and a good night's sleep the days before the gapf test.

Good luck!

sounds to me like classroom theory is only a small part compared to other residential full time providers of ATPL theory

and bristol gs theory is mainly computer, e learning etc based and only a small part class room based

I'm at Intercockpit, and as mentioned above they do use the Bristol GS notes, which are mostly very good.

Generally at Intercockpit we have 4-5 weeks 'self study phase', followed by an internal test, then 2 weeks fulltime lectures 'classroom phase'. The cycle repeats itself over the 9 month 'Theory Phase' after which you should be ready to take the German LBA (JAA) exams.

I find the theory/classroom mix to be adequate as most of the material needs to be learned off by heart. From my point of view, the understanding part is more than adequately covered in the lectures.

Hope this answers the question, if not PM me...

Dear maidude,why you have to do practice in ms flight simulator?Especially if you are going there to get the gapf test for an ab initio program(so you are unexperienced generally).

PLEASE GIVE US more information about that because i will take the gapf test in few days,so if you can give us as more as you can.

***please answer anyone who taken this gapf test
