Top 10 pilot interview questions and answers

Hi Captain Lim,

I stumbled upon your website while looking for some information on interviews for second officer and would really really appreciate your advice and enlightenment.

My boyfriend had graduated from a renowned flying school in the UK for almost close to a year now. He had been to two interviews for two major regional low cost carriers and unfortunately failed both interviews. I understand that reasons are not provided after you were not selected, but I am really curious as to what might have been the factors that could have led to him not getting through.

He recently got rejected at Stage 3 of the selection, which was based on group work and a face to face interview. As per his academics and track record, he's performed well. As an individual, he's an excellent team worker, as well as an calm and composed boy.

He's in his early twenties. I do not know whether his age was an issue, but from what I remembered, the airlines that he both interviewed with, he spoke to some individuals who were working for the airline and was told that they could help him and give him some advice. I'm not so sure if that could have jeopardized his interview instead. He's currently very depressed and clueless.

Your reply would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Eunn,

Age is generally not an issue. During the face to face interview, things that get one rejected may be the attitude, maturity and the inability to take pressure induced by the interviewers.

Since he is already a pilot graduate, he only needs to improve on his interviewing skills as there are no mention by you about your boyfriend’s other pilot abilities necessary such as,:-

• Good communication skills
• Ability to make decisions under pressure
• Good mental calculation skills - hence must have a good grasp of Mathematics
• Good at problem solving
• Lots of self-confidence
• Good physical fitness
• Fluent in English

I know there are many pilot graduates looking for jobs in the limited number of vacancies available today and only the very best are selected. It is a very competitive field out there.

Hope the videos above and below would help your boyfriend in his next interview. He has to try a little harder and I am sure he would be successful in securing a flying job in the end!
