Do airlines require pilots to take an aptitude test? Are there any other similar kinds of tests that airlines perform?

    $\begingroup$ What kind of test do you have in mind? Airlines are businesses. Perhaps you mean airline crews, who are humans? $\endgroup$ – mongo Aug 1 '17 at 13:46

Yes they do, and so do some independent training organisations. For instance EPST markets an aptitude test called Compass, developed to test the suitability of candidates before they engage in pilot training.

Some airlines only hire self funded students (who have paid for their own CPL, type rating etc) and they can be flight tested in the simulator.
