The information on this website has been submitted to us by candidates attending Air Astana assessment and sharing their experience with us. The content and computerised pilot tests on this page should only be used for preparation purposes.


1 - Technical Interview

Technical Interview
The EASA ATPL questions consist of more than 1300 ATPL questions that are commonly asked during airline interview and assessments.

The topics covered are Air Law, Aircraft General Knowledge, Flight Planning and Monitoring, Human Performance, Meteorology, Operational Procedures, Principles of Flight, Performance, General and Radio Navigation, Instrumentation and Mass and Balance.


2 - Simulator Assessment

Simulator Assessment

Simulator briefing for me and more 3 pilots, after that individual quick interview about aviation background and few technical questions, they asked me to explain mechanical backup, TOGA LOCK function, definition of stall and its associated pitch tendency (high speed swept wing aircraft and on small single engine plane)

Simulator session, AMS to BRU, captain as PF, engines were started but we had to taxi from terminal to Rwy 24, normal takeoff and climb, crossing FL 080 HYD G Res OVHT, perform ECAM, landing assessment, CCCP, company says it may be repaired in BRU, continue to destination, go around, landing gear not retracted, simulator freezes, end of exercise.

Captain repositioned to take off, engine failure without damage, reaching status page,simulator freezes, end of exercise. 

First officer take off, after rotation loud bangs on engine 2, pull speed, engine stall paper C/L, after turning anti ice ON, engine recovered, repositioned for ILS approach raw data with auto thrust ON. Interception and landing performed with crosswind of 25 kts, BIRD ON. Subscribe to see more simulator assessment feedbacks!

Math Test

This basic test in applied mathematics screens your understanding of the basics: multiplication, division, subtraction as well as speed, distance and time calculations. By taking this test, you can assess your mathematical skills according to the very same standards used in the industry and be thoroughly prepared when applying for a job in aviation.

The math test features a practice section with over 100 questions, each with a detailed explanation of the answer. The test section itself consists of 24 random, time-limited questions with answers.

Short Term Memory

Both short-term memory and tolerance for stress will be assessed in this simulation. You will constantly be confronted with new information about altitude, heading, airspeed and radio frequencies and asked to memorize and reproduce this information.

Short Term Memory features 3 different levels (easy, medium and hard). Each level has time-limited rounds in which you have to memorize the information and answer each question correctly. At the end of the test, a score will be calculated.

Spatial Awareness

This is a test to assess your spatial awareness and ability to read instruments. In other words, you need to understand the aircraft's attitude and position in physical space. You will be asked to pick the correct aircraft on the basis of the readings on the cockpit instruments.

The Spatial Awareness test features a practice section with 20 questions, each with a detailed explanation of the answer. The test section features 3 different levels (easy, medium and hard). Each level will have a 10 random, time-limited questions and a exact score will be calculated afterwards.


This test measures your multitasking skills. You will constantly be receiving information (digits) and you will be asked to enter them in the primary flight display by using the arrows and numbers on your keyboard. At the same time, alert signs will be displayed that need to be eliminated.

The Multitasking test features 3 different levels (easy, medium and hard). Each level is time limited. At the end of the test, a score will be calculated based on how accurately you entered the numbers in the primary flight display and eliminated the alert signs.

Advanced Flight Control

This test measures your psycho-motor and multi tasking skills. Test takers must adjust airspeed, heading, altitude and slip ball coordinator simultaneously to maintain the given target values.

The Advanced Flight Control has a 5 minute time limit. A score, based on your performance will be given in percentages. For optimum results, we recommend the use of a joystick and rudder pedals for this test.



4 - HR interview

HR Interview

We have created a question bank based on the questions we have received from candidate’s attending the assessment and sharing their experience with us. The questions are split into two sections. Competency based questions and flying based questions. Few examples below:

• Why Air Astana?
• What would you do if a passenger from first class is drunk and harassing the passenger next to him, what would you do?
• Tell me a about a time when someone overstepped your command

Question bank features 40 questions.
