The Admission Test at GreyBird Pilot Academy
GreyBird’s admission test primarily serves the purpose of convincing us that you can achieve your goal. We want to invest time and effort in you, and we do not want to be part of a journey that is not realistic.
Realizing the dream of becoming a commercial pilot is possible for most people, if you are willing to make an effort. Our test is not aimed to fail you, but we want to know why we should let you pass. The test consists of different elements which all serve different purposes. The elements are:
- A math test that also includes some physics-related questions
- A Raven test
- A DISC PPA analysis
- An Interview
Class 1 Medical Certificate
A valid and current Class 1 medical is mandatory for you to be accepted at GreyBird Pilot Academy, but you do not need one to pass the admission test. A medical certificate is costly. Thus, there could be a great deal of logic in postponing the cost of the medical certificate until you have passed the admission test. See more information here.
Language Test (The International Programme)
If you are aspiring to join GreyBird’s international programme, you have to pass an English language test. There are a number of different test suppliers, most of which require that you go to a local test center to take the test. Most of the tests cost approx. DKK 2,000. We recommend that you take the TOEFL online test, as it is widely recognized, the setup is very professional, and you can take the test online. For more information on TOEFL’s online test, go here. You must pass the test at Level B1 of the Common European Framework of Reference Languages (CEFR) or Level 4 of the International Civil Aviation Organisation. Having completed the test, you need to forward the result to us with your application to join the international programme.
