What can I expect from the interpersonal test?
There are many people who dream of spending their lives as pilots and earning money in this way. In fact, it is a real dream job, but for most people it will remain so.
If you want to become a pilot, you will not only face numerous hurdles on your way into the cockpit, but you will also have to prove your qualities in the interpersonal test at many airlines.
This is a very extensive recruitment test that is carried out at Eurowings or DHL, for example. In the following, we will show you which tasks have to be mastered in this test, how you can best prepare and what other requirements are placed on you as a future pilot.
Interpersonal test: What exactly is it about?
The Interpersonal Test is a test procedure carried out by airlines such as Eurowings to recruit new pilots. Applicants have the opportunity to apply for a career as a pilot or to undergo ATPL training with the Group both as ready entries and as ab initio candidates without a pilot’s license.
In both cases, a selection process is carried out, which is divided into a Basic Qualification and a Corporate Qualification.
Both tests are carried out by the company Interpersonal in Hamburg, which is where the name Interpersonal Test comes from. It is important to know that this test is not a performance comparison, but rather a process that focuses on the applicant’s personality.
