    What is the Flying Aptitude Test?

    From what I understand is it is a test which involves you flying a plane in a simulation while asked random questions like 42 - 13? Does it not test your physical ability, such as put you in 0 Gs? If not is there a test that requires you to fly the aircraft upside down or falling?
