The assessments will determine whether candidates have the right skills, attitude and profile to meet the required competencies of the job and of the airline. Every Airline is legally obligated to ensure that, via a solid selection procedure, their candidates have sufficient capacity and qualifications to start with the Airline as a trainee (ab-initio pilot), as F/O or as Captain.
