The PLAAF announced (July 16) that its pilot recruitment campaign for 2020 has begun and that more than 3,800 fresh high school graduates who have passed the preliminary and second round of selection are now in the final-stage test. The official in charge of the Pilot Recruitment Bureau of the PLA Air Force said that because of the COVID-19 pandemic this year, no recruitment test base was set up in Beijing this year for the first time. Instead, three pilot cadet recruitment test bases were established in Jinan of Shandong Province, Chengdu of Sichuan Province and Changsha of Hunan Province. More than 2,000 candidates from 16 provinces including Shandong, Henan, Heilongjiang, etc. will be examined in 16 batches in Jinan, while more than 1,800 candidates from 15 provinces including Sichuan, Shaanxi, Xinjiang, etc. will be tested simultaneously in Chengdu or Changsha. Prior to testing, all recruiting staff and candidates will be required to take the nucleic acid test (NAT), and for the first time, expert examiners will carry out comprehensive medical tests covering more than 100 physical examination items in 10 categories, and more than 400 psychological tests on 4 testing platforms. It said more than 90 medical experts and over 70 psychologists have been selected by the PLA Air Force for this pilot recruitment campaign. The entire selection process will be carried out under real-time monitoring and be completed by early August.
