ETC Announces the Availability of its Pilot Selection System for Use By Commercial and Military Aviation Aeronautical Entities

Southampton, PA, July 12, 2010 — Despite recent downturns in the economy, air forces throughout the World as well as the aviation industry in general are continuing to grow. Pilots are in great demand, yet identifying individuals who possess the aptitude for flying is a long, expensive and uncertain process. ETC’s revolutionary Pilot Selection System can evaluate large numbers of pilot candidates in a short period of time and assist flight schools in improving their identification success rate. It is an efficient four-step proprietary intra-network system that leaves the most qualified pilot candidates left to train more rigorously for tactical and commercial flight. ETC’s Pilot Selection System features three sections: Personality Measurement tests including a personality and personal inventory; hands-on Pilot Aptitude Test utilizing ETC’s General Aviation Trainer; and Suitability for Flight Test (SFFT). From this battery of tests evaluators will determine the viability of the pilot’s progression.

Providing a high-fidelity, visual database with authentic motion cues, the SFFT takes the place of flight screening by an instructor pilot in an actual aircraft offering significant economic benefits. Further, additional emergency situations can be simulated that are impossible to recreate safely and without damage to a real aircraft.

The Pilot Selection System is supported by ETC’s 40 year history of serving aircrews around the World. ETC’s experience, dedication, quality and commitment is unmatched.
