He also wanted to know the top altitude on the particular transition we’d be flying. I was the shown the ILS 35 into KAVL and asked to brief the approach. We then talked about weather inside and outside of the FAF and more questions.  Know the symbols on the plates, aids and stars. We covered Vmc and multi engine aerodynamics along with systems on my most recently flown aircraft. (view the study guide of... Continue Reading this Interview Experience

  1. Sep 09, 2021 Fairly standard interview faire I'd say. Although the most unique part about CommutAir in my experience was the requirement to memorize aircraft callouts as well as some speeds, and the written test that had to be completed prior to the interview. We started off with a brief overview of the company presented by the HR representative and any questions I had about life at CommutAir. We then conducted the TMAAT portion. This portion is themed primarily around "Tell me things about yourself... Continue reading this interview experience

  2. Sep 02, 2021 Very standard stuff. Went through a company presentation initially after introductions. Then HR portion- TMAAT focused questions: Emergencies, good CRM, bad CRM, etc. Tech portion was very standard and straight forward. Asked about CRJ engine starts (a plane I haven't flown in 4 years, so I didn't remember specifics). Then talked through a flight from EWR to JAX with an alternate of SAV. Same as everyone else with low weather- looking to mention low vis taxi chart, hot spots, take off... Continue reading this interview experience

  3. Aug 23, 2021 Started out with HR Question, tell us about your background, what got you here and what you see for your future. Then what do you think makes a flight safe. Tell us one of your strengths. Tell us about a time you had an emergency. Then Technical portion, pulled up taxi diagram for EWR, picked up an IFR clearance then briefed the taxi to 22R @W, know where to find hotspot info. Then know your call outs they give you before hand. We had to divert to SAV, briefed the RNAV approach. Asked for... Continue reading this interview experience

  4. Aug 20, 2021 Know your TMAAT Questions answers, they did focus on asking me something about myself that didn't come across in my application, something special about myself, and a time I had conflict resolution. Have a few questions ready to ask about the company, know UAL core 4. The Tech Side, know holding speeds 230 below 10k, how to read SID, STAR, and ovi approach plate. Read through the gouges, and the tech questions on here and you'll do great. be yourself. Remember they can train you for the... Continue reading this interview experience

  6. Aug 03, 2021 Interview sequence were as written in the gouge. Very accurate. Pleasant experience. HR questions were standard as listed in recent interviews. Asked about why CommutAir as your choice, I mention it is because of being close to base options. Asked about any failures , I was honest and mentioned some of my failures early in my aviation career. No hard questions to worry about but just be straight to the point. Got the call back 20 mins after the interview with a joining date. Technical... Continue reading this interview experience

  7. Jul 29, 2021 Pretty straightforward, the questions on the gouge were a great help. We started interviewer saying he wasn't looking for perfection for an FO interview, but wanted to get a general sense of my line of thought for scenarios (captain interviews obviously different and more technical). Started talking about a coffin corner, about 121 instrument items like when a departure alternate is required, looked at approach plates. As long as you can read one, and know where to find items you'll be... Continue reading this interview experience

  10. Jul 16, 2021 Very short and easy interview. HR asked 6 or 7 questions. One was "tell me something about yourself I can't get from your resume." The technical was relaxed but lasted a little longer. Went through a METAR and TAF, then asked if we could shoot an approach at a certain time. Briefed an approach plate. Asked about hydraulic system in previous aircraft. Asked about fuel system in previous aircraft. Asked how many miles out and at what rate we would descend if we need to lose 20,000ft....
