So, you’ve read our post “How long in advance should I prepare ahead my first selection” and now you’re wondering which selection to prepare for first.

This is a valid question as of course, you want your efforts to be rewarded, and for that work on a specific target. Thing is, you never really know which one will contact you first. Sure you may have an idea based on who seems to be interviewing the most, but your file could be coming up the pile with another airline for a reason only they know… and then what ?

So the best answer to this question is to work generically for the first 3 months after you’re out of flight school. Doing that prepares you for any eventuality and builds your skill.

We recommend you start with Pilot Assessment’s pro package, which is a medley of the most commonly run tests. Work them. Work them hard. If you subscribe through us Pilot Assessments will convert the remaining time on your pro package to that of your airline of choice at no cost.

In the mean time, if your flight school hasn’t ran an ASP course for you, enrol without delay for one. You could decide, at this stage, to do the 121 interview and the Sim later, or you may want to do everything just to stay current. It’s entirely up to you.

Doing both Pilot Assessments and ASP will take care of that generic prep so when the long awaited email finally lands in your inbox and you only have a few weeks left to prepare, all you have to do is transition onto the airline specific Pilot Assessment package, study the airline in detail the way we will have tought you, revise the ASP framework and narrow your focus for success.
