  1. Feb 20, 2020 Pretty much echoed what is already on here. I think I heard about 90% of these questions that are listed. Online interview was about an hour and 15 minutes. Know your IFR stuff! I was notified that I passed upon completion and was invited up to CT right after. Tradewind flew me up and paid for everything.  Givena a Sim.  (view the sim/scenario section of this website).   Felt comfortable during both parts. Very friendly...

  2. Feb 19, 2020 Had a quick phone call interview and just to basically it get to know the company and they could learn a little bit about me. Couple of days later I had a online interview for about an hour. This include about 20 to 30 minutes of typical HR questions and employee scenarios. Then there was about a 20 to 30 minute Of IFR questioning. He had me read back a couple of clearances and brief how I would perform an approach as well as a departure. We talked about an obstacle departure procedure and... Continue reading this interview experience

  3. Jan 08, 2020 As others posted on this website, Dan was the initial contact and the interviewer. He is very friendly and makes you feel at ease during the process. We talked about basic HR questions... who you are, where you've been, would like to go, situations encountered with a coworker or in the aircraft, ect. Then proceeded into the instrument information that he sends before via email... TEB2, KACK ILS24, departure from KPSF. Know the chart and how to read it well, take off and landing mins and...

  5. Dec 30, 2019 I had to do a skype interview because of how far away I live from CT. Then interview went relatively well, he started of with just basic HR questions and then we talked about several different approach plates.

He didn't seem... Continue reading this interview experience

  6. Dec 27, 2019 As others have said, the interview via Skype was straight forward and relaxed. I interviewed with Dan and he made the experience very simple and a pleasure. Several approaches and departures were given to me before hand to study and were discussed during the interview. Every question I was asked was on the study guide on this site. I would encourage you to be in the books before the interview regarding flying Part 91 IFR flying. Also, start putting yourself in the mindset of flying VIP...

  7. Nov 19, 2019 The interview experience was pretty much the same as what the other experiences state. It started with a Skype interview that consisted of IFR questions, I was asked to brief an approach into KTEB and KACK. I also briefed the departure for KTEB. They then asked me questions about the approaches and the departure and they gave me scenarios.  The key to being successful on this part of the interview is making sure your IFR knowledge is spot on review the approaches they give you before...

  8. The Skype interview began with basic HR questions (tell me about a time when..., how would you handle this situation, etc) then went into IFR questions. I was told to brief the Teterboro 2 departure as well as two instrument approach plates, then i was asked questions on those plates. Make sure your IFR knowledge is ON POINT going into this interview as Tradfewind does approaches down to mins all the time. After the Skype interview, I was flown to Connecticut to do the simulator eval. (view... Continue reading this interview experience

  9. Interview is pretty straight forward. Basic questions about you and you're goals. Instrument knowledge is a must, even with minimal actual experience the more knowledgeable you are the better. That's pretty much the key, be professional to represent the industry you are getting into and be knowledgeable about instrument flying and basic safety... Continue reading this interview experience

  10. The interview went exactly as stated by the others. We started off talking about my background, and then the HR questions on the study guide. It was very laid back. We then moved on to the technical questions. Again, just like the others stated. Study the approach plates and departure procedures they give you ahead of time. Know weather minimums. Practice briefing a first officer on these items as well. They will give you weather and ask you to brief how you would make the approach or... Continue reading this interview experience
