I've actually been on the line now for just over a month. The job is awesome and the people with this company are even better. There is no interview as they need pilots immediately! Talk to Gary(recruiter) and he will get you squared away. Make sure and download Austin's website material and know it before you show up. Be instrument current as pilots will be washed out if your abilities... Continue Reading this Interview Experience

There is no scrwing around. If you are not current AND PROFICIENT then don't waist your time. theay really need pilots but... Continue reading this interview experience

  4. i only can say good things about flight express. the interview process was very laid back. the recruiter is one of the most excellent persons to deal with. very informative and he is always there to guide you. the sim ride was straight forward, no surprises, no failures. Austin, the manager of training only wants to see your instrument skills, and that they are up to speed. then you have the HHRR with the D.O. who ask you questions about yourself. The ground training was intense, then again,... Continue reading this interview experience

  5. I figured I would finally post to this website. I have been on-line for awhile now, and Flight Express is a fun job. Interview experience was different than any I have ever had. If they like you, you begin training THE SAME DAY of the interview. With that in mind, pack heavy and be prepared to be sent to your base right out of training. INTERVIEW: You begin the day with Austin Collins, the Manager of Training. He is very serious in the SIM. You start out with a 0/0 departure. He resets... Continue reading this interview experience

  6. Sim ride came first (PCATD) with the Dir. of Training, Austin, in an A36 Bonanza. Look closely at the altimeter, he resets it to 29.2 to try and trick you, gives the altimeter setting as 29.92. 0-0 departure from BNA, vectors to an ILS app., I think he gave me the ILS 2R. Missed approach and head for the holding fix, I didn't have to hold because there were alot of sim rides waiting behind me. Be instrument current and maybe get some time in a PCATD. Follow a precedure, thats what he really... Continue reading this interview experience

  7. Went in and did the PCATD first. It is a BE-A36 profile and the sim is pretty easy except to taxi. I heard it's different than the old sim they used to use. It was a SID out of BNA to an ILS, go missed then hold (never did). Austin, the Dir. of trng. does the sim. Nice guy but very serious in the sim. Kept me in the dark about the app to set up for but I think it was the 2R. The wx was almost 0-0 at t/o and just under mins at ldg. I actually saw the rw when I was going missed. No...

  8. The interview as very laid back. The sim ride was very straight foward. Depart ORL using a DP, get vectors for ILS7 and then hold and that was it. Just make sure to be familiar with NOS charts. No technical questions. There were I think five of us and they chose 2 to start the next morning. Just be yourself. They just want to know if your committed to the company before they put invest in training you. Hiring is going strong. They were interviewing for the next class while we were...

  9. The interview started by meeting the director of training, Austin. He sat me down in front of the sim, explained a few things and then gave me a few minutes to look over the v-speeds and checklists. He then asked me to fly a departure out of Orlando Executive, followed by some instructions from ATC. Then I shot an approach to mins into Exec. followed by the published and into the hold. That was it. I then met with the Director of Operations. No tech questions, just a good old fashion... Continue reading this interview experience

  10. its been six months since i have been hired but i saw that FLX was added so i thought i would comment. the interview process is very straight forward. the sim ride is in a bonanza with the director of training and followed by an hr interview with the director of opperations. the dt wants to know that you can fly. i had 0/0 departure from orlando exec. with the dp followed by the ILS 7 to the MAP (don't forget the intermediate level off) enter the hold make 2 turns and i was done. there is a...

  11. Feedback from: William R

    I liked the practice questions from actual interviews, also the option to study for more than one company. It definitely helps with the actual interview!
