It was all very simple...the Interview questions on this website were almost exactly what they asked me. I felt very prepared walking in. They flew me out for the interview, I arrive to the DPJ office a little bit early so I had to wait. I got introduced to everyone and... Continue Reading this Interview Experience

  1. Mar 13, 2023 Overall a very laid back interview, really a conversation getting to know each other and learning about the history and company culture. Big areas asked were STAR/SID/Approach plate(Be familiar with Jeppessen plates)... Also know callouts and emergency procedures for a previous airplane you've flown(CE560 in my case). Multi engine aerodynamics, and instrument regulations. Be able to describe personal customer service... Continue reading this interview experience

  2. Mar 09, 2023 Interviewed via Microsoft Teams with a current FO. Very relaxed and low threat. Started with general background questions. I am a military rotor guy so we talked about what I saw as the challenges I would face transitioning to the civilian world. Went over my resume then moved to the technical questions Overall it was a pleasant experience. Unfortunately I was informed the next day that they have put the brakes on hiring FOs currently so my resume and interview have the green light and they... Continue reading this interview experience

  3. Feb 28, 2023 This was throughly the Delta propel partnership. Interview was very laid back. Interviewer started with asking me about how I got into aviation to know me and I also asked him how he got into aviation. He then asked if I had any questions about working at Wheels Up. I had a couple of questions prepared about life style and what a normal day is like. He then talked to me about some perks working for Wheels Up. The technical portion began with him asking me what is my normal preflight... Continue reading this interview experience

  4. Jan 20, 2023 Very laid back interview process. Covered some basic personnel questions and moved right into some IFR basics. I had reviewed Jeppesen approach plates, but was actually asked questions from FAA charts. Definitely review SID's and STARS's and you'll be fine. There were some weather questions related to alternate requirements. There were no gotcha questions and the whole process took about 1.5 hours. There's a bit of a backlog of pilots due to some training cancellations so training was... Continue reading this interview experience

  5. Jan 09, 2023 This interview is quite relaxed and not that formal, nor is it intimidating. It is about getting to know the pilot applicant's personality. The interviewer also explains about the Wheels Up background, culture and some key particulars of the pilot job here. Perhaps since I'm an "old airline dog", it may have been tailored a bit towards a part 121 retiree here today. I was asked my thought process of taxing out to the runway of a V1 engine failure. What were my thoughts prior to... Continue reading this interview experience

  6. Jan 04, 2023 I applied last month. Honestly, wasn't expecting to hear back from them because it took so long. When I did hear back from them, I got an email in my spam folder that wanted me to schedule an interview. I took the next available slot which was the following morning. I hopped on zoom and the interview was very fast-paced. We opened up by talking about my flying experience, why I want to fly for Wheels Up, and the experiences I had in the cockpit. The only technical thing we went over was... Continue reading this interview experience

  7. Dec 12, 2022 This was for the Delta Propel partnership. The experience was very laid back and was more of a conversation than an interview. Talked about how I got into flying and why I was looking at Wheels Up rather than a regional. Basically walked through an arrival, briefing a STAR and approach into Portland. Talked about alternates and when we need one (part 91). Are we able to shoot an approach if the ceiling is lower than mins but have visibility. A lot of ADM based question. Overall, a simple,...

  8. Dec 08, 2022 I interviewed for the Delta Propel Wheels Up position. The whole interview was very laid back and very conversational. Pretty much the only HR question was "what's your flying story/how did you get into aviation?". Most of the interview was talking about the company, what it's like to work there, what to expect for training, etc. As for technical questions, I was asked to brief a STAR and an approach. For the STAR, I was asked about the altitudes on the chart (hard altitudes vs the... Continue reading this interview experience

  10. Oct 31, 2022 This interview was part of the Delta Propel Pathway Program. Very laid back and straight forward. I was only asked a few technical questions and most of the interview was just a discussion about what it's like to work for Wheels... Continue reading this interview experience
