Checklist Personality Profile (CPP)                        

CPP is a personality questionnaire designed to measure a broad range of personality traits that are important in the function of an airline pilot. The questionnaire automatically generates a report, in which these traits are combined to form relevant competencies, such as stability, flexibility, self-discipline, team orientation, independence, leadership, and assertiveness.


Over 200,000 candidates worldwide have participated in a COMPASS assessment since its inception and there are high levels of correlation with success in flight training.   For around the price of just one hour of flying, this test represents a highly cost effective way of indicating suitability for flight training.

Results:   Individual results from the comprehensive battery of tests are printed in an easy to understand format allowing immediate assessment.
