SkyTest® to release interview prep books

We just released our interview study books SkyTest® Airline Interview and SkyTest® Airline Interview - The Exercise Book. While SkyTest® preparation software is the tool of choice to prepare for pilot aptitude screenigs, it is the later-stage HR interview that decides whether an applicant is actually hired or not.

SkyTest® Airline Interview addresses the theoretical concept that guides each airline interview and offers a look "behind the scenes" of pilot and air traffic controller recruitment. Applicants who understand scope and intent of biographic or situational interview questions are more likely to present complete and well-worded answers.

Interviewers will challenge applicants out of their comfort zones and ask tough questions to pull relevant information. To resonate with this demand, applicants need to discover and revisit their individual stories. SkyTest® Airline Interview - The Exercise Book guides readers step by step through exercises to develop a successful and individually-adapted interview strategy.

Airline Interview English

German editions of both books top the sales ranks of airline interview preparation literature in their markets and fetch great customer reviews.

SkyTest® Airline Interview (ISBN: 9783744822510) and SkyTest® Airline Interview - The Exercise Book (ISBN: 9783744822541) are available at 19.90 EUR (incl. VAT and complimentary international shipping) each at skytest.com. Cheaper e-book editions are available at at Amazon Kindle-Shop, Apple iBooks, Google Play. The German versions of these books are available on our German website www.skytest.de (2017/05/29)

New training modules for Technical Comprehension

Technical comprehension tasks are part of most pilot pre-hiring screenings. The DLR runs a test that asks its taker to assess technical situations rather than performing calculations by physical formulas. Such may refer to mechanic gear or lever tasks, electric circuits or background knowledge tests. Your basic grasp of technical relations is what counts.

We supplemented our SkyTest® preparation software products for DLR 1, Swiss, Middle East Pilot Screenings and UK Pilot Aptitude Screenings with six dedicated technical training modules.
