Skytest for European Flight Academy

Hey guys, I read that the Skytest software offers a specific software for the DLR BU/GU qualification for the selection process for the ATPL course at the European Flight Academy (Which I'll be applying to later this year) . Does anyone have experience with skytest and specifically with this specific software?

I have used SkyTest for other selections, namely L3 Pilapt, so not the same version you need for EFA, but I can vouch that it was pretty accurate of what I faced at L3 and the way it prepares you is good. It has training assistant tool so helps you work on your weaker areas.

I think the version for EFA is this one: https://www.skytest.com/IP-BQ-Eurowi...lification.htm

Website is very helpful and kept up to date so if you ever chasing the correct version just use the drop down on their website and find the airline/flight school.

Well, each flight school that offers an integrated ATPL programme would put you through a mandatory intense selection process that tests your mathematical, physics and situational awareness abilities. In addition there are group exercises that tests to see how well you perform as a team. Lastly there is a final interview with the flight school and or airline that aims to see how you are as a person and if you would fit the characteristics of a pilot. If you're successful, you would be called for a Class 1 medical exam to see whether you're fit to fly, the exam looks at hearing, eye sight, physical examination, height/weight, etc... And once done with all of that, you've entered flight school!

You have the added complexity of Brexit as welll, a school like EFA require you to be an EU citizen so not sure how it will all work after (if) Brexit goes ahead
