Save resources in applicant pre-selection

The 2020 pandemic and accompanying travel bans have hit the airline industry hard. According to the latest global report from the Air Transport Action Group, the load factor has dropped from 84% in 2019 to around 58% in 2020. As a result, about 46 million people in the travel and tourism sector have lost their jobs. Of these, about 1.3 million were directly employed by airlines. Compared to 2019 employment figures, this represents a 36% decline.

However, forecasts by Oxford Economics and IATA Economics show that the airline industry will recover and the demand for air transport will increase by an average of 3% per year over the next twenty years. Not only will passenger and revenue numbers increase, but so will the number of airline employees. This means a massive demand for personnel with particularly high levels of responsibility, such as pilots and air traffic controllers.

Are you looking for pilots?

Selecting suitable employees for these important positions is time-consuming and costly, especially when there are many simultaneous applications. International societies (e.g., IATA, 2019) have therefore recommended a multi-stage selection process even before COVID-19, in which unsuitable applicants are identified before the more elaborate on-site tests.

Our Safety Screening Air (SAFESC) enables the screening of logical reasoning, numerical ability and the ability to concentration as well as optional job-relevant personality traits: uncomplicated, inexpensive and maximally flexible for you and your applicants.

Screen thousands of applicants with just a few clicks, in minutes.




Screening for the optimal preselection


The selection of skills tested with SAFESC was based on international guidelines, proven selection procedures and empirical studies.

SAFESC provides a quick overview of the results:

  • An overall evaluation in percent with a three-star system as an aid to interpretation
  • individual results with an evaluation in traffic light colors
  • different weighting of the skills in the area of road flows into the evaluation
