How COMPASS works?

COMPASS Pilot Apptitude Test Center in Mumbai, India where you can Prepare for Jet Airways COMPASS Pilot Apptitude Test or Spicejet COMPASS Pilot Apptitude Test Indi​a.

How COMPASS works:

The COMPASS software is installed on a pc that is equipped with a joystick and rudder pedals.

Once the COMPASS installation is completed, and the connection between COMPASS and the centralized COMPASS server has been verified. The system is ready for pilot candidate testing. COMPASS operates stand-alone and does not require an active internet connection. Results are stored on the PC and can be uploaded to the server to be verified at any time.

Pilot screening process:

After a short explanation of the test, the candidate pilot can start the COMPASS Aptitude tests.

The tests are started from the main menu and are automatically run in sequence till all the tests are completed. The typical time from start to finish is between 90 minutes and 2 hours. Once the tests are completed, the test results are uploaded to the main sever to be automatically verified.

Depending on the type of pilot selection, Ab Initio or Advanced, the candidate is tested on the following skills:

Skills tested by COMPASS (for Ab Initio pilot selection)

  • Eye-hand-foot co-ordination (Control)

  • Eye-hand co-ordination (Slalom)

  • Short term memory (Memory)

  • Mental arithmetic (Mathematics)

  • Spatial Orientation (Orientation)

  • Multi Tasking (Task Manager)

Skills tested by Advanced COMPASS (Aptitude test for experienced pilot selection)

  • Complex Control Task (CCT)

  • ATPL Theoretical questions (ATPL)

  • Short term memory (Memory)

  • Mental arithmetic (Mathematics)

  • Spatial Orientation (Orientation)

  • Multi Tasking (Task Manager)

COMPASS test results

The scores of the COMPASS test are available directly when the results have been uploaded to the server. The results of a COMPASS test show the score for each skill tested. This allows the Airline or FTO that is using COMPASS pilot selection to show the candidate on which skills he or she was proficient or not. The presentation of tests results in this manner make it very clear to a pilot candidate why he or she has been accepted or rejected for the next step in the pilot candidate selection procedure.

The test results of each COMPASS testing session are stored locally on the compass PC.
