Interview as previously stated. 2 Day process in Dallas, first day was the PST (which is now being given in LAX and online as an option). I don’t care what anyone says, there is no way to prepare for the PST. It’s broken into 6 parts, 4 of which are timed. There is no such thing as doing well on the PST, it uses machine learning. The better you do, the harder it gets, especially for the math portion. The best preparation you can do for the PST is get a full nights rest and not have any distractions like hunger or your phone buzzing while you take it. Be...

  1. Nov 08, 2022 Excellent experience. We all showed up at 8:30am in JFK at the TWA hotel. We all registered there were about 200 applicants. After signing in they did a presentation on the airline that was informative. Then we were split into groups 1-8 for meet and greets. Half the group waited out in the hallway and had an opportunity to do the application review I highly recommend doing this. Then they switched. The meet and greet was very laidback and comfortable. Then about 30 minutes later I was doing... Continue reading this interview experience

  2. Nov 01, 2022 Great experience with American. Very professional, lines up with all the other feedback on this website. Only thing to add is that you need to be prepared to defend your decisions when asked technical questions. They will continue to probe after you’ve answered. Just be confident in your answers and explain why you’re making the decisions you’ve made. Last, be... Continue reading this interview experience

  3. Nov 01, 2022 The experience was great and as previously stated. Be prepared to really back up your answer. I had some questions that I had not see asked on here. Be yourself and seen if you can find common ground with your interviewing pilots. Answering the questions correctly is only part of it. They are also trying to figure out if they could sit next to you in the cockpit for 6 hours at a... Continue reading this interview experience

  4. Oct 25, 2022 Everything on Aviationinterviews is spot on. I also hired a consulting company but found I didn't actually require the extra help. Overall the interview was simple. If your application is selected you will schedule an HR Zoom interview. This takes about 30 minutes. Then you schedule the in person. Make sure your name in The application website matches your passport (very important). Company should email you with lodging anywhere from 1 week to 3 days out. They put their applicants in the...

  5. Oct 25, 2022 The interview was a pleasurable experience. They did very well to make us all feel at ease. After assembling in the building and making our acquaintance with each other, we were then lead to the auditorium for a 20 min video. After the video we were met by one of the fleet managers who gave us the briefing on what was to come next for the interview. We were all lead to the DC-3 where we were met by our captain pairs to interview us. I had an introduction (2 mins) and 4 TMAATs then 2... Continue reading this interview experience

  6. Oct 25, 2022 Interview experience was the same as others listed here. Very laid back and professional. HR interview was conducted via Zoom a few days prior to the face to face in Dallas. Face to face interview was conducted by 2 AA pilots per applicant and consisted of a short intro followed by multiple TMAAT questions that are all listed on this website. Got the CJO a few days later and was told to expect an early next year class date. Study the questions on this site and just be... Continue reading this interview experience

  7. Oct 25, 2022 Previous descriptions pretty spot on. Make sure you have application entirely filled out before even getting to DFW, including all docs uploaded to pilot credentials. Hotel and transportation provided. Bring all your stuff, there will be a place to keep your bags during the interview. Started in the pilot recruitment office for document collection and logbook review. This is where people are pulled if there are question about something in their logbooks. Taken from there to the museum... Continue reading this interview experience

  9. Oct 19, 2022 Of all the interviews I’ve had, this one was probably my best experience. You’ll show up and they’ll review your documents. Make sure you have EXACTLY what they ask for. You’ll go to the theater to see about a 20 minute introduction of the company. After which one of the recruiters spoke with us while the interviewers were getting ready. I interviewed with 2 captains and it was very laid back. I got 3 TMAAT questions, 2 scenarios and 2 WWYD questions. My... Continue reading this interview experience
