Psychological Assessment

Psychological Assessment

The likely suicide of the pilot of Germanwings Flight 9525 has meant a re-examination of the issue of aircrew mental health, leading to the forthcoming EASA recommendations on the topic. This is likely to require operators to undertake audited psychological assessment of aircrew during recruitment, and monitoring and supporting pilot mental health during normal line operations.
Core Aviation Psychology has built up extensive experience in the psychological assessment of aviation staff including pilots, licenced and unlicensed engineers and other aircrew over the past 3 years. We have assessed more than 200 pilots and 150 engineers, and have an unrivalled database of profiles of successful applicants in both groups, particularly in the commercial rotary-wing sector.
The benefits to you of our approach to psychological assessment are:
  • It is fully compliant with the forthcoming EASA requirements on aircrew psychological assessment
  • It is evidence-based - we use only proven psychological tests and approaches
  • It is cost and time effective, can be carried out at your chosen location,  and can fit around other selection processes such as medical examinations and simulator assessments
  • We report rapidly - a verbal report on the same day followed by a comprehensive written report in 5 working days. We produce useful and jargon-free reports! Please contact us for a sample report
  • We can compare an individual against our unique comparison group of successful applicants for pilot and engineer posts in commercial aviation
