What does this regulation mean for your aviation company?


The regulations from the EASA AMC.1.CAT.GEN.MPA.175 (b) define the requirements for the selection process for pilots who are to work for a complex operator. But even non-complex operators have to orient themselves to the regulations. According to the definition from the regulations of the EASA AMC.1.CAT.GEN.MPA.175 (b), a complex operator is a flight operation that employs more than 20 FTE pilots.
But what do the regulations say in detail? As the person responsible in your flight operations, what do you have to do in order to recruit pilots in accordance with the rules?
The air operator is obliged to carry out an aviation-psychological assessment within the scope of the selection process at least 24 months before the start of the line-flying of the pilots. This aviation psychological assessment, which we call Corporate Qualification, must check the following areas:

  • Cognitive Abilities
  • Professional and Operational Competencies
  • Personality Traits
  • Social Competencies according CRM principles


The "cognitive abilities", i.e. the mental abilities of the pilots, are checked with us as part of the basic qualification. The "Professional and Operational Competencies", the flying skills and abilities are part of the simulator screening. The "Personality Traits" and "Social Compentencies" are carried out as part of the psychological assessment. At interpersonal, this step is called Corporate Qualification. Due to these requirements, a three-stage selection process, as recommended by the IATA, is the optimal process to meet the needs of your aviation company in a targeted manner. Our team of competent and experienced assessors and aviation psychologists is ready to work with you to define the optimal, flexible, fast and economical process for your pilot selection.
