Pilot Interview Demo

Hello Captain Lim,

I am a big fan of your site and thank you for setting up this wonderful and informative site.

I have to go the Air Asia 1st Assessment test on 6th April. Some of those who went for the 3rd one said, according to one captain, they will be having the 6-stages assessment instead of the old system of 4 stages. The new six-stage assessment is similar to the SIA interviewing process, having 2 interviews, 1 assessment, 1 psychomotor test, 1 tea party (last) and one medical examination.

What I want to ask here is, are those interviews and other tests the same as in SIA or slightly different? And why 2 interviews but not one? I am shy to say that I am afraid of interviews and some pilots in the interviewing board will try to make us panic with pressurized scenarios - this makes me worry even more.

Hope to hear from you soon.

Daniel

Hi Daniel,

I believe the change in format for the recruiting process is mainly due to the large number of applicants for the limited places available. So it is a question of supply exceeding demand. Only those who really excel will be taken in.

Yes, the interviewing process is getting more stringent – probably similar to SIA or even more than that as Air Asia is the only airline in this region still recruiting for good pilots at the moment.

I wish you all the best.

Interviews Are Advantage
Hi Daniel. I'm replying to you based on what I have gone through when I went through the Six Stages before being selected. In my opinion the interview stages are where you can score more and increase your chances of getting selected. Show your personality in the interviews. Good personalities will definitely get a Thumbs Up. Be knowledgeable, But not too much. Be Honest. If you don't know answers to any questions don't stress out. just tell them you don't know.(But There is a limit though).Every stage plays a major Role. Be Calm and Cool throughout the whole process and show your skill. Good Luck Mate!!!
