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. (view the study guide from this website).  Overall the interview was very easy... Continue Reading this Interview Experience

  1. Dec 07, 2021 The first stage of the interview process is a quick 20-25 minute phone call with a Tradewind recruiter. Simple questions to just get to know you as a pilot and for you to get to know a little about the company. Next step is the technical interview which is done over video chat. Brush up on your instrument knowledge from regulations to reading approach plates. Once that is complete, you will schedule your simulator evaluation in Connecticut. As already described, (view the sim/scenario... Continue reading this interview experience

  2. Oct 08, 2021 Technical/HR portion of the interview was fairly straight forward but very heavy on IFR knowledge. Know your takeoff minims and how you would fly a SID. Be ready to pick up mock clearances and apply them to a departure scenario. As for the SIM, no difficult approaches or emergencies were presented but of course as others have mentioned, use your trim. Specifically it needs a lot of nose up trim when reducing power. If you have flown desktop or any sim before it shouldnt be an issue, they... Continue reading this interview experience

  4. Sep 13, 2021 The first portion of the interview was great, it was a zoom call.  Discussed IFR regs and briefed SIDs and approaches. Felt welcomed and really wanted to join the team. The second portion of the interview is a sim evaluation, drove out to CT to do it. Went into the sim eval and was greeted with hostility, which made the nervousness worse. (view the sim/scenario section of this website).  The person doing the sim evaluation was not friendly at all which makes me question the team... Continue reading this interview experience

  5. Aug 11, 2021 The interview process started with an online HR technical portion over Zoom, which went very well. You answer basic human resource questions about situational awareness, CRM, personality, customer service, etc. I had Dan, he was very professional and personable and makes you feel like you’re having a normal conversation instead of an interview. From there, they move into IFR regulation questions, which are pretty basic (91.75) as well as knowing approach plates into their common... Continue reading this interview experience

  6. Aug 03, 2021 My interview was 1 hour and 15 min online. First section was pretty easy.   Mostly HR type questions.  (view the study guide of this website).   Then technical questions.  passed the first round of interview, going to their CT headquarter to have a sim check, was told it will be a Mooney, G430, X-plane desktop, and insisted me to trim the airplane because the yoke is very...

  7. Aug 03, 2021 Interview consisted of an HR, followed by technical (make sure you can read an approach plate, all symbols, minimums, etc..) The simulator consisted of 3 approaches. They gave me 3 approaches that I hadn't seen before, but if you understand the plates and procedures, you should be fine. I used a friend's desktop simulator to help me prepare for the evaluation. The airplane is very hard to control, I recommend you get some desktop experience before... Continue reading this interview experience

  8. Apr 27, 2021 Consisted of 3 interviews, a human resources interview, a technical interview and a simulator evaluation. The technical interview is all about instruments, a departure procedure briefing, and an approach. It is important to know every detail of the approach plate.  (view the Sim/Scenario section of this website).... Continue reading this interview experience

  9. Apr 21, 2021 Tradewind flew me out with 24 hrs notice after an HR/technical interview I did over then phone (I knew the interviewer so a zoom call wasn't necessary). HR is easy.  (view the study guide of this website). Also make sure to read back departure clearance with all SID/STAR instructions per usual, there is no rush at all. The interview took place in Oxford, CT, so I had to uber 90 min from KLGA (which they reimbursed). Then sim, (view the Sim/Scenario section of this website).  ...

  10. Apr 11, 2021 It was a three tiered process, initially I had a quick HR interview over the phone that took about 20 minutes. Then a couple days later I had an in-depth interview HR and Technical interview with the Director of Training. The gouge on this site is exactly what he asked. Prep well for his questions and you will be fine. Then after the HR and Technical interview was over, he immediately let me know that he wanted to move forward with me and fly me out to Oxford to fly the sim. (view the...
