For the second year, the Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University campus in Berlin hosted a two-day training course on "Using psychometric profiling tools to increase the effectiveness of pilot selection and training". From 11-12 February 2019 participants were provided with introductory topics in psychological profiling directly applicable to aviation selection and training. The course is recognized by the European Association for Aviation Psychology towards accreditation.
The participants learned about personality traits that predict pilot behavior and how to increase its effectiveness in the selection process, as well as in aviation training using psychometric profiling tools.
During the practical sessions, the candidates evaluated real-life selection scenarios for First Officers and Captains. The instructor Karina Mesarosova stressed the importance of a holistic approach within selection and training of pilots.
In addition, the attendees learned about the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) recommendations and the new EASA regulation that requires operators to undertake psychological assessments of aircrew during recruitment.
