FEAST 1 Test: Practice REAL Examples (2021)

About the FEAST Eurocontrol Test 

Let’s briefly look at each stage of the FEAST test, so you can better grasp how to prepare.

During each test segment, you will receive short 10-minute breaks to allow you to refresh and continue. On the real test, these short breaks will be invaluable for you, since in some questions you'll have as little as 6 seconds to memorize complex numbers and variants:

Note that test results are scored electronically, and you will, therefore, know immediately if you have scored high enough to move to the next stage of testing.

The FEAST Test Explained Section by Section:

FEAST 1 – Cognitive Abilities and English Tests: The first test will take about 2.5 hours and is focused on cognitive ability and knowledge of the English language along with listening comprehension. Questions will test your multitasking abilities, logical reasoning, attention to fine detail, visual perception and spatial orientation.

Here's a spatial orientation sample question from our FEAST PrepPack™. This question is almost identical to the question types you'll encounter on the actual FEAST 1 test:

FEAST Test Sample Question Spot the Side  

This question type might seem easy for you. In fact, if you had enough time, you could probably answer all of these questions correctly.

The problem is you don't have time. On the real test, you'll have less than 2 SECONDS to answer each of these question types. Now that's a pretty tough challenge. 

Ready for another sample question?

The following is an example from the Cube Folding section, an infamous test section in which many candidates tend to fall:

Did you spot the correct answer? On the actual test, you'll have only 1 minute to answer each of the questions in the Cube Folding section.

And since we know that many find this section extremely challenging, we've added an exclusive guide in our PrepPack™ with tips and tactics that will help you cut the solving time in half!

Moreover, the preparation pack includes practice tests for all the different types of assessments found on the FEAST Phase 1:

  • Conflicting Paths Practice Test
  • Number Recall Practice Tests
  • Cube Folding Practice Tests
  • Spatial Reasoning Practice Tests
  • Gauges Memorization Practice Tests
  • Correlative Orientation Practice Test
  • Speed Reaction Practice Tests
  • Symbols Memorization Practice Tests
  • Flight Strategy Practice Test
  • Ball on the wall Practice Test
  • Follow the Dot Practice Test


Try to get as many correct answers as possible on the FEAST 1, because if you score a minimum of 70%, you'll be invited to move on to the second round of testing, the FEAST 2:

FEAST 2 – FEAST DART Test and FEAST Multipass Test: The second test is about double in length as the first one and takes about 4 hours to complete. Round two includes two work samples: the Dynamic ATC Radar Test (DART) and the FEAST Multipass Test. 

Both these tests are sophisticated and require an acute ability to multi-task; however, they require no specialized knowledge and are replete with detailed instructions to ensure that every faucet is fully clarified before beginning.   

FEAST 3 - FEAST Personality Questionnaire (FPQ): This segment of the test aims to measure your personality traits and behavioral characteristics. You are presented with phrases and scenarios and need to answer them on a scale of 1-5 (agree - not agree.) The test takes about 35-40 minutes to complete. You will find useful preparation material for this part of the FEAST assessment, so you can familiarize yourself with the personality questionnaire and understand what is expected of you.

Note: We currently offer thorough prep only for the FEAST 1

FEAST 4 – Medical Examination: 
The last stage is the medical exam, the only part in all FEAST tests that you cannot prepare for. The medical review is conducted according to national regulations. 

Who Needs to Take the FEAST Test?

The test is applicable for several positions and specialties that encompass air traffic control, including:

NAV Canada Air Traffic Controller (ATC):

  • Area Controllers (IFR) – In this position, you will use sophisticated equipment to ensure the safe flight of multiple aircrafts across multiple routes. For instance, if a plane is traveling too fast or if there is not enough distance between two aircrafts, it is your job to warn the pilots. 
  • Tower Controllers (VFR) – These guys are in charge of making sure that runways and taxiways run smoothly and that the air space in and around the airport is orderly. Depending on the airport, you may have to work in large groups, so teamwork is crucial. 
  • Flight Service Specialists (AAS) – These specialists are tasked with providing pilots with crucial information, including which runway to choose. Some also need to keep remote airports update with information like emergency landings and more.
  • Flight Service Specialists (FIC) – These guys are like in-flight weather forecasters, plus they help lead rescue search efforts in the event flights go off course or missing.

NAV Canada FEAST Test Regions and Countries 

The First European Air Traffic Controller Selection Test, provided by Eurocontrol, is administered by NAV Canada in many regions across Canada, covering all 7 flight regions across the country. Furthermore, much of Europe uses the test, excluding Serbia, Romania, Belarus, France, and Italy.
