These study guide questions were submitted by real pilots who actually interviewed with PlaneSense
Why Planesense with your level of flight experience? Because I hear PlaneSense is an excellent company, I think flying a PC-12 would be much more fun than a jet. Also, the 8 on 6 off schedule fits into my lifestyle very well.
Tell us about you experience overseas? What brought you there?
Do you have any questions? Make sure to ask questions at the end. It will tell the employer that you’re interested in the company and that you want to learn more and grow.
