FREE Red Wing Aviation pilot interview information and gouge

Red Wing and XOJET gouges were pretty spot on. I was expecting a lot more questions than I got. The first interview was conducted with an HR rep. We went over who I was, why I wanted to fly, why I chose Red Wing, and answered some very simple technical questions (everything was in the gouges). Then I was able...

  1. Feb 01, 2023 The phone interview was scheduled a few days after I submitted my application. Around a 30 minute call with basic get to know you questions, flight experience/hours then she threw in a few technical at the end (RVSM, V1, RVR). I moved on to the next stage where you sit through a 1 hour presentation about vista (those meetings happen on Tuesdays). Very well put together and seems like a great company to work for. My individual interview was the next day with the chief pilot of XO and HR.... Continue reading this interview experience

  2. Jan 31, 2023 Same experience as most. HR presentation that morning. My interview was at 1600. Mostly CRM, threat management, and personality questions. TMAAT question.  Study the gouge there weren’t many technical questions. The interview only lasted 30 minutes not sure if that is good or... Continue reading this interview experience

  3. Jan 18, 2023 No surprise questions if you study the guidance from this web. Who you are, how soon can you start, how do you and your family feel about the 15/13 schedule. Why Red Wing? Your strength and weakness. Then some basic instrument questions like holding time. How far should you be away from thunderstorm. Seem that they are now merging all the vista company in operations, because the HR asked several times if I accept to fly for another Global Vista... Continue reading this interview experience

  4. Jan 17, 2023 Really chill and easy interview if you be yourself, study the gouge and do your research. I am not going to repeat what was written before, just I want to mention two things not mentioned before. - Don't Panic if the status changed from "under review" to "Hidden (XXXXXX)". This means your applications is moving forward. - Email your recruiter if you don't hear back from them in a week. I was reassigned... Continue reading this interview experience

  5. Jan 17, 2023 Second interview; was a zoom meeting for the company presentation made by Chief pilot and VP of recruitment. There were a total of 13 people in the zoom meeting, I assume mostly were pilot applicants. Some were dressed professionally, while others were not. 45 minute presentation about Vista Global, its subsidiaries, fleets, operations, past history and fore-casted growth. Appears to be a well funded and organized company. Later in the day I had my one on one interview with CP and VP of... Continue reading this interview experience

  6. Jan 17, 2023 First interview was the phone call interview; asked about MEL, MDA vs DA, TMAAT, flight hours that you have, Icing questions. Second interview started with the presentation, an hour later. Went through HR. HR questions were pretty spot on from here and went through what would you do if…… They gave me 3 scenario as a CFI, What would you do if your teaching someone how to do an ILS, and they went 3/4 below Glideslope and what happen if they’re correcting for it but...

  7. Jan 10, 2023 I applied in early fall when I only had 800hrs TT, 38hrs Multi and 70 hrs night. A week later I got a call from RWA recruiter that I need to get to minimums to be considered, but they will keep my application active. Once I have minimums, update my application and email the recruiter to start the process. Early winter when I got all my minimums for the job, so my status changed from Under Review to Hidden. I emailed the recruiter to ask about that and they said that my application in moving... Continue reading this interview experience

  8. Jan 09, 2023 I had been in contact through email since last fall. Was asked to resubmit resume once I hit 1,000 hours. Emailed updated resume before Christmas. Followed up after Christmas and was told I was assigned to a recruiter who followed up a week later and scheduled the phone interview. Primarily was an HR interview. Tell me about your work experience, flight experience. Why should we pick you over other candidates? Went over total flight times, time in last 90 days and last 12 months. Technical...

  9. Dec 20, 2022 Initial Interview: Submitted the application. Was emailed back within 2 days to setup initial phone interview. Phone interview was very straight forward. My interviewer was from JetEdge as they are all under the Vista Brand. Walked her through my resume. General HR questions about you and getting to know you. Straight forward HR stuff from the gouge. Got into the technical portion 5 or so questions pretty straight forward again from the gouge. What is a FAF, VDP, how far does the FAA... Continue reading this interview experience

  10. Dec 20, 2022 First round was a 40 min call with a recruiter. They asked about current position and what it entails, any accidents, incidents, FAA Violations, any failed check rides. Just be honest. She then moved into technical questions. (view the study guide of this website).  The second round was with the head of HR and chief pilot for XO jet. Started off with why Red Wing Aviation, what are you looking for in a company.  Chief pilot gave an instrument approach question.  And then... Continue reading this interview experience
