  1. Interview sample 1

    Apr 23, 2024 Most of the questions were straight from the study guide and most of the interview was spent on Jeppesen charts. I would recommend studying the approach plates as that is where a lot of applicants make mistakes. Other questions were reading a METAR and TAF and were asked about take-off and destination alternates. Know how to read RVR and Remarks for the METAR, for TAF be very careful to look at 1 hour before and after the arrival time. If you have multi they will ask you to explain VMC and...

    Apr 19, 2024 The interview was a great experience. The two FO's who conducted the interview were very nice, knowledgeable, and professional, and they made it a very comfortable experience. We started with about 5 HR questions, nothing crazy ("What would you do in this situation?" type of questions). After the HR portion, we moved right into the technical portion. The scenario was a flight from DCA to CLT. We started by reading the METAR for DCA and pointing out things that were concerning, such... Continue reading this interview experience

  4. Interview sample 4

    Feb 29, 2024 Interview was straightforward and simple. The AviationInterviews notes, (study guide) were very good and accurate to the interview. The interview itself lasted for about one hour and the questions were very simple. I didn't feel like there were any "gotcha!" questions that were unable to be answered. Most of the questions revolved around training that I had already received throughout my time as a pilot the last two and a half years. I would recommend AviationInterviews to anyone...

  5. Interview sample 5

    Feb 22, 2024 Interview was very straight forward. If you prepare using the study guide PSA provides you there should be no issue. The interview consisted of two FO's at PSA introducing themselves and asking some icebreaker questions. Then one FO proceeded to ask me HR questions. These were the standard HR questions you may be familiar with. Questions like "Why do you want to work for PSA?" and "How would you address a situation when your captain and FA are not getting along?". Once... Continue reading this interview experience

  6. Interview sample 6

    Feb 21, 2024 The interview team was great and created a very laid-back, chill environment. They asked a few HR questions before moving on to a question-answer, instrument checkride style of quizzing. You will be asked things about instrument procedures, SIDs, STARs, holds, airport diagrams... all Jeppesen charts. Also, a few questions at the end about your particular aircraft's engine and fuel system. I was personally asked to explain a carburetor. They let me know at the end that I had passed both...

  7. Interview sample 7

    Feb 21, 2024 This was for the Senior Cadet Interview. Before the interview they send you a study guide which was very helpful. They first started off by asking me to read a metar (KDCA), and asked whether I would need a take off alternate and considerations I would have given the weather. They then asked me me to read a TAF (KCTL) and determine whether I would need an alternate, I didnt but they asked if i would file one anyways. From there they moved into take off minimums. They then asked me what a SID... Continue reading this interview experience
