The following simulation based selection systems have been developed in cooperation with CAE Elektronik GmbH, Stolberg.

The portofolio includes development and empirical evaluation (psychometric, predictive) of diagnostic instruments and test systems in order to assess

a) Personality Features like half standardised interviews and corresponding rating systems

b) Mental Performance like psychometric paper pencil tests PC-based psychometric tests and simulation based testing systems

c) Social Competences like group scenario tests and corresponding rating systems.

d) Pilot specific Operational Competences (simulation based) like psychomotor abilities, spatial abilities, multitasking, strategic information processing, problem solving)
