HOW TO PREPARE FOR THE AIRLINE PILOT INTERVIEW

In addition to writing down your prepared answers to the questions, we also recommend that you say the answers out loud enough times so that you sound natural and spontaneous.

COMPETENCY-BASED INTERVIEWS

A few airline-interviewing panels are now using CBI (competency based interviews). Top marks will be given to answers containing PAR (problem action result) whilst nil marks will be given if you can’t think of an example! Marks are given for the amount of evidence and the quality of the example. You can ask to return to a question later – but you MUST answer it. It’s vital that you answer all questions.

AT THE AIRLINE PILOT INTERVIEW
Take all of your necessary documents with you. Be on time – if necessary stay the night before and make a dummy run so that you know where it is. (We know of somebody that turned up late and he didn’t get the job.) Make sure that you are smart and presentable. Absolutely no jeans or trainers!

  • Appear confident and do not slouch. Have a firm handshake, maintain eye contact and smile!
  • Do not waffle and remember to pause, think and then answer (even if you know the answer). Speak clearly.
  • If you don’t know the answer, ask for clarification before telling them that you do not know.
  • Be polite to all members of staff; they may ask one of them what they thought about you! Remember that they all want you to pass, be yourself.
  • Practice the following questions. Think carefully about, and find your best answer to, each question. Write down your prepared answers to each airline
    Pilot interview question that is supplied both on this webpage and also within the workbook.
