“With almost 18 years experience in hiring and managing pilots, I thought I had a good handle on what to do. However, after attending your Pilot Selection Course in March of 2007, I began to realize how much I didn’t know especially involving government compliance.…..We had what I thought was a great hiring program, but I quickly realized we had no predictive validity. I could not prove that any test, interview or simulator evaluation actually worked in selecting the most suitable applicant….You showed us how this was a waste of time and money and how to correct the problem.”
