Airways Aviation, a provider of pilot training, and Symbiotics, experts in psychometric assessment for the aviation industry, have partnered to support cadets by providing their ADAPT assessments ahead of commercial pilot training.
Airways Aviation operates one of the largest fleets of privately owned training aircraft worldwide. Its vision is to train, educate, shape and deliver a new generation of aviation industry professionals as they assert themselves as a dominant private provider of quality aviation education and training globally for civilian and military customers.
Symbiotics has a deep understanding of the aviation industry’s unique requirements and the critical skills, attributes and competencies needed in aspiring pilots. Both organisations will work together using Symbiotics’ ADAPT assessment suite to ensure a confident selection process, whilst supporting Airways Aviation with its commitment to providing a higher level of professional pilot training.
Airways Aviation Global COO and CCO Alexandre Alves said: “Having such a geographical dispersion, working with different aeronautical regulations, with airlines, whitetail students, military customers and other stakeholders brings a lot of challenges to Airways Aviation operations. One of the challenges is to maintain a standard of quality in all regions of the world. Despite originally having assessment processes in place, we concluded they were not providing enough reporting or assessing all the topics we needed. Knowing the ADAPT assessments and in particular the Symbiotics team behind it, Airways Aviation management concluded it was the solution we needed. This will allow us to have an assessment standard globally and provide detailed reporting to our B2B customers feeling comfortable we are enrolling the best future pilots and cabin crew possible.”
Providing pilot, cabin crew, maintenance and ground services Ab Initio training, Airways Aviation academies are approved by EASA (Europe), CASA (Australia), CAAC (China) and ICAO (through several local authorities).
Having trained over 35,000 aviation professionals since inception, Airways Aviation has to date enrolled almost 1,000 students throughout the different courses in 2023, and the plan is to double it in 2024.
