Flight Aptitude Test advice - Aircrewman

MountainFox

Midshipman
Hi all,

I am soon to be taking my FATs for Aircrewman and I’ve read all the posts on here to death but thought I’d try and get some more recent info if anybody has experienced the dreaded FATs recently? Or is soon to!

I’ve been brushing up on my SDT and mental arithmetic. Can anyone give me an example of how a fuel consumption question would be phrased?

Also, does anyone know if the Aircrewman testing is indeed shorter/different to the standard test? Are the co-ordination tests still done with joystick/pedals?

And of course any advice? Probably for my own confidence more than anything because I’ve read nothing but negative info about it!

Thanks!

Good websites to help you practice for FATs:

http://www.speeddistancetime.info/index.php (personally spent hours on this before attending FATs)

The testing is shorter compared to the tests for Pilot/Observer, but it still takes a good couple of hours to complete. There's an app called CBAT which you can get on your phone which I found to be a big help before sitting FATS, as it helped with doing basic mental arithmetic and help for the CLAN test amongst other things.

Good luck mate!

Had anybody recently taken FATs for Aircrewman? I’m finding so much mixed info on what tests are actually taken, apparently there is no SDT tests for ACMN and I have been rinsing through them...

Just found my FATs result sheet which features Pilot, Observer, ATC, and "WSO (Info Only)" batteries. I am assuming that WSO is for aircrewman? I don't know for certain if it is, but regardless, here are the tests included on that battery:
  • Cognitive Updating Test, Situational Awareness Test, Spatial Integration Test
  • Target Recognition Test, Table Reading Test
  • Auditory Capacity Test
  • Directions and Distances, Instrument Comprehension Test
  • System Logic Test, Airborne Numerical Test
  • Rapid Tracking Test
  • Colours, Letters, and Numbers
Honestly, I have no idea whether this is the aircrewman test battery, but given that it was the only remaining battery on my RN FATs result sheet, I think that perhaps - deductively - it could be the aircrewman battery. I personally wasn't debriefed on that result as I was going for pilot and passed for all roles.

Hope this helps. Just ensure that you are prepared for whatever they might throw at you.
