Selection Tips

Tips to help you prepare for an L3 Airline Academy assessment.

L3 Technical Assessments

Prepare for the Cut-e aptitude & numeracy tests.

Day One

L3 Airline Academy typically split their assessment process into two components, although this might well vary depending on any partner airline requirements.

The first of these is known as the technical assessment day which looks to assess both your aptitude for flying and numerical ability. For many years L3 made use of PILAPT testing but in 2018 made the switch to Cut-e assessments (pronounced cute) administered by a company of the same name.

There are several components making up the L3 Cut-e test which come together to assess your numerical ability, spatial awareness, reaction speed, monitoring skills and multi-tasking ability. While any test sounds daunting, thankfully there's a few things you can do to help ease the nerves and prepare for the tests.

I have described the new Cut-e technical assessments in length within a Cut-e blog post. Click the button below to read it.

L3 Non-Technical Assessments

Read about the group exercises and one-to-one interviews.

Day Two

The second day of the L3 Airline Academy selection process will see you take part in non-technical exercises to include one or more group tasks and a one-to-one competency based interview.

Note - If airline partners are involved, i.e. easyJet or British Airways, then the tasks on the day may well vary but tend to follow the same layout. Some partner airlines might even ask you to attend further assessments at their own offices.

I recently published a blog post about the non-technical assessment day, the STAR Framework and the NOTECHS framework. Click the button below to read it.
