These study guide questions were submitted by real pilots who actually interviewed with GoJet Airlines
Why GoJet? Stated growing up in STL, knew about company, and was actually given a chance/interview with no ATP There are several bases that are relatively close to home.
What was my most difficult situation on an airplane? Landing Huron after freezing rain, had to go around Total electrical failure on a XC flight.
What would you bring to this atmosphere? Professionalism, leadership and world experience
Tell me about your flying background and why do you want to come to GoJet? I want to come to GoJet because I care about the professional environment.
What was your most memorable experience in an airplane? Flying a helicopter at night in Afghanistan responding to troops-in-contact with rapidly deteriorating weather and mountains on 3 sides of us
Describe the fuel system in the most complex aircraft you have flown. You have a fuel bladder with a fuel lift pump installed in the bladder, you have a in line fuel filter, before fuel is sent to the FCU, where it is then regulated and dispensed into the engine. We have center tank and main tank, fuel moving from the center tank to the main tank by transfer ejectors and from center tank to the collector tank by scavenge ejectors gravity line used as back up then from collector tank to the engine driven high pressure fuel pump by main ejectors back by boost pumps.
Tell us about the systems on the aircraft you are currently flying The aircraft has two primary and secondary electrical, hydraulic and fuel systems, and a primary and secondary fire suppression systems in case of fire in flight. The aircraft has a APU unit built into it, which once operational powers the electrical and hydraulic systems for before take off checks. If you're flying an aircraft, you should be able to discuss any of it's systems.
Brief this ILS approach plate. They are currently using LIDO approach plates
How is the final approach fix defined on an ILS? The fix from which the final approach (IFR) to an airport is executed and which identifies the beginning of the final approach segment. It is designated on Government charts by the lightning bolt symbol, designating the PFAF, for precision approaches; or when ATC directs a lower-than-published glideslope/path or vertical path intercept altitude, it is the resultant actual point of the glideslope/path or vertical path intercept.
On the Lido charts, it appears that the final approach fix for a precision approach is called the final approach point and is depicted by a white capital letter “P” inside of a black circle.
What difference does it make if visibility goes below minimums and you are outside the FAF? For most Part 121 and 135 operations you are not allowed to begin, continue, or perform the instrument approach procedure if the reported weather is below the landing minimums when located outside the final approach fix. Under part 91 operations it maybe legal to do the approach but you meet the flight visibility requirements of 91.175 to land.
