The ability evaluation of pilots is the basis of the three basic construction, and the quantified pilot abilities are required as basic data in various aspects such as precision training, qualification management, and safety management. The International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) has published 9 core competencies of pilots (manual flight control capabilities, automatic flight control management capabilities, program execution capabilities, the ability to master and apply knowledge, communication skills, problem-solving and decision-making capabilities, situational awareness ability, fatigue management ability and team management ability), but ICAO did not elaborate on how to quantitatively evaluate these nine abilities, and the current industry's common practice is mainly to adopt manual evaluation methods. Subjective factors are too large to be objectively, fairly, scientifically and comprehensively conclusions.
