This Paper introduces a research method and exemplary test results used to define operator's predispositions that are carried out by Department of Avionics and Control, Faculty of Mechanical Engineering and Aeronautics, Rzeszow University of Technology. Researches carried out under laboratory conditions define candidates predispositions to perform pilot profession and are one of the recruitment process elements for pilot specialty. Tests are carried out with the use of specialized informatics tool, that enable the evaluation of operator's predispositions and is not sensitive to candidate gender, race and origin culture. This paper presents and analyzes the results obtained during the researches conducted in the period from 2006 to 2008. An important part of the work is a proposal of a simplified informatics model of pilot. This model considers, in the operator's predispositions evaluation process, those elements of particular importance to perform pilot profession.
