What is Project 2020?
Project 2020 is a Research & Development project established in November 2019 help us continue the development of the SurePilot™ Online Pilot Assessment solution in the next 12 months.
What are the objectives of Project 2020?
Our primary goal is to collect data from candidates who undertake SurePilot™ Online Pilot Assessments to help us assess test reliability, refine the processes we use to test candidates and to help us validate the SurePilot™ Online Pilot Assessment solution.
Why should I participate in Project 2020?
By participating in Project 2020, not only will you be able to take a free SurePilot™ Online Pilot Assessment, but you will also be contributing to the research and development of a contemporary pilot assessment tool that we hope will help to shape the future of aviation training.

The SurePilot™ Online Pilot Assessment, which normally costs in the region of £26 to £32, is offered free of charge to Project 2020 participants. It's an online computerised assessment that is completed on a normal desktop or laptop computer and is comprised of five tests assessing a broad range of competencies. It typically takes approximately 1 to 2 hours to complete. On completion of the assessment, you're presented with detailed information on your performance, including a 21-page PDF describing your scores.

What does it mean to participate in Project 2020?
Participating in Project 2020 is a very simple process. We're offering everyone who participates in Project 2020 the opportunity to complete a SurePilot™ Online Pilot Assessment completely free of charge and in return, we request that each test taker complete a 5-minute questionnaire. The data we collect from these questionnaires will allow us to assess test reliability, refine our testing processes and help us to validate the SurePilot™ Assessment for commercial use.

It takes less than 5 minutes to complete the questionnaire, but the data we require is vital to our research and development objectives.
How do I complete the Project 2020 Questionnaire?
The Project 2020 Questionnaire is completed in two parts. You'll complete the first part during registration for your SurePilot™ Online Pilot Assessment where we will ask you a few questions on your age, location, educational level and aviation experience.

The second part is only relevant to those individuals with aviation experience, and subject to the answers provided during your registration, you may not be required to complete this part. The second part of the questionnaire asks for further information about your aviation experience.

If you are required to complete the second part of the questionnaire, you will prompted to do so by a message shown throughout your SurePilot™ User Area when you are logged in. The information required can be entered via your Manage Account page when you're logged in.

The entire process to complete both parts of the Project 2020 questionnaire takes less than 5 minutes.
