ADAPT pre-pilot test
Taking the controls of an aircraft is something many people want to try at some point in their life, with some wondering what it’d be like to be a pilot or co-pilot.
Until now the low-cost options were limited to a trial flight at the local aero club, which gives a feel for the sensation, or getting to grips with a flight simulation computer game, which really only tests how good you are at computer games.
Now those with a fancy for flight can see how adept they are with ADAPT. The sophisticated online tool is provided by ServiceIQ as a solution for flight training schools to meet the pre-test requirement for people wanting to achieve the New Zealand Diplomas in Aviation (Aeroplane and Helicopter) and Massey University School of Aviation Bachelor of Aviation degree programme, although anyone who wants to see if they have the right stuff can give it a go.
More than 1000 tests have been taken, and feedback is that ADAPT is a very useful pre-test tool.
Taking the ADAPT pre-test costs $80+GST, with the results calculated and emailed to you within a few hours.
