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. Sep 25, 2023 HR was straight foward. Technical definitely study like an IFR checkride. And Sim Eval be ready to fly the most sensitive sim ever. Study IFR a lot like plates, departures, enroute, clearances. Be ready to brief plates. Readback clearance and take off minimums. Be familiar with garmin 430 and 530. Be familiar with the Northeast... Continue reading this interview experience

  2. Sep 14, 2023 The interview is conducted in a 3-part process. The HR interview was over Teams, and I was invited to do this less than a week after submitting my application. This one was the least intimidating as they present a slideshow to tell you about the company, the contract, and the flying. After this, the recruiter (who was a PC-12 Captain) asked about my goals, why I wanted to work for Tradewind, and a few TMAAT questions. After this, he told me I passed to the next round-the technical. I was... Continue reading this interview experience

  3. Aug 30, 2023 The initial phone interview was mostly HR and company presentation. Then a indepth Sim/Scenario, (view the study guide of this website). Find a very crappy SIM to practice on first! Good... Continue reading this interview experience

  4. Aug 16, 2023 Sent in application as current UAL Aviate participant. Received an invite to interview. First stage was the HR portion. Second stage was the technical portion a few days later. Third was a sim eval the next day. Gouges were spot on. HR portion was standard. Tech portion was a mini IFR ride so study up. Sim eval wasn't difficult if you practice at home on a home sim. Don't blame the tool. Just fingertip fly it. Received an offer on the day after finishing the sim... Continue reading this interview experience

  5. Jul 19, 2023 The HR interview went well. We went over the repayment agreement it the commitment is not fulfilled. The technical portion was a week later. It was a lot of IFR knowledge. You are given the option to use government charts or Jepp charts. That was nice so you don’t need to worry about not being proficient in one or the other. The interview was much like it was described on the site and the study guide was extremely helpful on the technical interview. The desktop SIM was where things...

  6. May 03, 2023 Tradewind has a very thorough, 3-part interview process. The first was a Microsoft Teams meeting with the recruiter going through a powerpoint that explained the basic operations of the company, what the requirements of the job would be, and some of the benefits. During the meeting, the interviewer asked questions as to how I fulfilled the requirements, and asked me to give a brief overview of my flying history. The technical interview was also done via Microsoft Teams, and essentially... Continue reading this interview experience

  7. Apr 17, 2023 HR interview was very straightforward; it is mostly them asking a bit about your background and then presenting the company, basic pilot expectations, etc. Have your times ready from your logbook and educated estimates as to how many hours you’ve done in the past 3 and 6 months. They want to see how actively you fly. They’ll also explain the training contract ($35,000 contract, I believe for a year and a half commitment; the clock doesn’t start until you upgrade to...

  8. Mar 14, 2023 HR interview is pretty straight forward, all questions listed in the study guide were asked. Recruiter tells you about the company and throws in some qualifications/tell me about a time questions which are all very easy to answer. Technical interview was more difficult than expected. Mine consisted of questions about the G430, some regulations (91.175 in particular) and the structure of the technical was a standard 3 day leg working as a northeast pilot for Tradewind. asked about the TEB4...

  9. Mar 13, 2023 I have an accident. Once I told them on the interview, they said they will call me back. They ask about my flying experience. What do I know about company. How much flying time do I have. Do you have any accident or incidents. What is my goal in the future. Do I want to go to airlines. Where do I live. How I will commute to the job. About the potential salary and job responsibilities. Do I have the passport. If yes. How... Continue reading this interview experience

  10. Mar 06, 2023 The interview is conducted in 3 phases as stated before: HR, Technical and Sim Eval. The HR interview was very casual and I was given a powerpoint presentation which was basically all of the information on their website compiled into a slideshow. We went over the training contract pretty thoroughly and he wanted to emphasize that I understood the agreement. I was asked why I want to work for the company, why I would be a good asset, a couple "what if" questions and that was about... Continue reading this interview experience
