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. Nov 09, 2022 Interview went well. The questions on this study guide were pretty accurate. Very scenario based. Had be brief the KTEB 4 departure. They asked me to explain the plate as if they were a brand new instrument student of mine. They liked that I briefed to the minimums needed section first. Then I was asked to brief the ILS 24 into Nantucket after the tower was closed. (view the study guide of this website).  I passed and now am going in for my sim eval in a few...

  2. Oct 26, 2022 Interview exactly as described by others. First interview was all very basic HR question. Second was all IFR questions. Study the tech questions and you will do fine. It was straight forward, just study the approaches the company sends you. They will tell you what airports and approaches to get familiar... Continue reading this interview experience

  3. Oct 23, 2022 Interview was very straight forward. I was honestly very surprised to see that pretty much every question asked on the HR/Technical were included on this study guide. HR is very easy, it's basically them talking to you about the company the whole time, and occasionally asking about you. The technical is very IFR heavy..... and it is OKAY IF YOU DO NOT KNOW SOMETHING ON THE SPOT! Treat it like a checkride and prove to them efficiently that you know where to look it up. I was thrown a couple... Continue reading this interview experience

  4. Oct 20, 2022 Interview went smooth! Very IFR heavy. As long as you are able to give good read backs to your instructions and follow/brief the plates you should be okay. Questions in the study guide helped! We went through the instrument departure from kteb from there fly ifr to kpsf and them another ifr takeoff to kack. They will be evaluating your decision making and ask what or why are you doing x... Continue reading this interview experience

  5. Oct 18, 2022 HR interview was very laid back. Was taken through presentation about company and asked questions about my qualifications and flight time throughout the presentation. Received a couple of "Tell me about a time when" questions (the existing gouge on AviationInterviews is pretty spot on) as well as questions like "How would your closest family and friends describe you?" Interviewer was interested in my extra-curricular work with aviation organizations, as I have a good... Continue reading this interview experience

  6. Oct 13, 2022 It was a really good experience. It’s IFR based so having a solid IFR knowledge it’s a must. You have to pass through 3 stages, the HR, technical and then the sim evaluation. Here they want to see you thrive but you have to demonstrate that you got what it takes. Really awesome... Continue reading this interview experience

  8. Aug 06, 2022 Submitted application. Took almost two weeks to do the "HR" interview. Got on a microsoft teams meeting with standards captain who said the HR interview was supposed to be done over the phone with an HR rep from company. (They never called) So we did a 45 min "HR" style interview which was mostly the captain talking about the company for maybe 80% of time. Rest was very basic questions.  Technical interview was scheduled for a month later on microsoft teams. Got on... Continue reading this interview experience

  10. Mar 22, 2022 The interview was fantastic. Dan called me the day before the interview and asked pretty general questions.  (view the study guide of this website).   After he gave me a brief on the company, we scheduled a zoom meeting the next day. To get ready for the interview, do your research on Tradewinds, and study your approach plates and Departure procedures. The questions on this site are pretty accurate to the interview...
