Tell him to join aviationinterviews.com and pay the $10 fee or whatever it is now and the interview will go exactly how all the reviews and question list on there says.

Read Jepp plates pertaining to DFW, arrivals, departures, taxi diagram.
IFR questions: when do I need a second t/o alternate, RVSM, etc.
V1,V2, accelerate-stop etc. but nothing else related to jets or systems or anything.
HR: act like a normal human and be able to talk to the guy about something.

Tell him no sim ride, no written test, no hogan or personality test, and the best part is if he can pretend to be normal, and like able for 3-4hrs, this could be the very last interview in his career.

Was just reading some interview experiences on aviation interviews. One said something about a baron sim ride? Is that for the direct entry captains or was it an old review?

Do the DECís go thru the same interview?

Could be an old interview. There was a time where everyone did a sim ride. I think the only time they use it now is for someone without recent flight experience.

Pilots with prior 121 experience skip the technical interview and only do the HR interview.

So if a guy wasnít current but went out and rented a 172 for a hundred hoursó-then no sim ride?

No offense, but if you need to spend the time and money for 100 hours in a 172 to avoid a sim ride, this may not be the job for you.

They started to do that again? I did my interview 2 years ago and couple of months after me they stopped doing it.

For me it was intercepting/tracking VOR Radials, a hold, VOR approach at DFW to go missed, and that was it basically.

I do technically have over 100 hours in the last year, but since it's a single pilot plane and we fly it as a crew, I have less than 100 logged time. Our hours have dwindled.

I interviewed about a month ago.

They pay for airfare and a hotel the night prior if needed. Day of, the shuttle leaves the hotel for Envoy HQ at about 0715 for a 0800 start. Checked in and they had us review some paperwork and gather up all our documents and logbooks to give to them. They then gave us about an hour brief going over their recruiting brochure. After that we were taken one by one for the HR and technical interviews. Each one was conducted separately. We had one guy in our group that had to do the sim, he hadn't flown in about 10 years. He did it in the E145. Not sure if they just don't have the baron that everyone is talking about anymore or if they used the 145 for him since he was a prior KC-135 pilot. It's accurate that you only need to do the sim if you've flown less than 100 hours in the last year. They provide lunch for you as well.

The HR consists of basic HR questions. The technical is basic 121 regs for alternates, airspeeds, etc. It's also heavy on Jepps for the DFW area (pretty much what most have already stated). Gouges are dead on for everything they are currently asking.

If it doesn't go well for you they will ask you to leave once everyone has completed their interviews. If you do get a pre-job offer they will take your fingerprints and do a drug test then let you go. After the background checks are done they will hold a Captain's Review Board and select whether or not you are actually a go or no go. That took about 3 weeks for me. If you pass that you will get your Conditional Job Offer in your email and then get put into a hiring pool because they are really behind right now on Captains and don't want to flood to many FOs into the system. Hopes this helps.

Aviationinterviews lays it all out on the table. They have every possible HR and technical question that could possibly be asked in the Envoy specific interview. You will probably not be asked a question that is not on that website!!!!! Most of the answers to the technical questions are actually there too! Pay the $20 or whatever it was and use that website.

Me personally, before I went to interview I printed out all the questions, made a answer to every possible HR question (because I'm traditionally terrible at hr). I studied the tech questions and read through the jeppesen charts guide. Here's the link.
http://ww1.jeppesen.com/documents/aviation/business/ifr-paper-services/glossary-legends.pdf
On my study breaks/days off I worked on my logbook and got the mountain of paperwork neatly in order.

Did I mention to pay for aviationinterviews? It has half of the answers and all of the exact possible questions you will be asked.

That website is the gouge and there are dozens of actual envoy experiences on there!

The sim is a Frasca set up like a Baron.
You will only do a sim ride if you do not have 100 hours in the last 12 months.
The 145 sims are at the AA training academy and you will not be going there.
The Frasca is at Envoy HQ/schoolhouse where you will be doing your interview.

Man, it's been 8 years or so, since I interviewed with Envoy, (Eagle at the time...). Not sure if it's changed, but I DO remember this: They were VERY strict on the accuracy of your hours. IE, What's on your airlineapps hour matrix when you apply, better match accurately in your logbook when you show up for the interview. And have all of your significant events tabbed (ie checkrides, the line entry of when you hit certain minimums, like 1500 hrs, ect.). I triple counted every total in my logbook. Made sure everything added up (day + night = TT, IFR + VFR = TT, ect...), and updated the airlineapps just before the final submission that makes it on the desk the day of the interview. Any hours I flew between that day, and the interview just simply didn't get logged until after the interview. I imagine the same accuracy is in order for when you start training, for your 8710 (IACRA) the day of your type ride / ATP ride.

Yeah basically my experience as well. They work up the logbook review during indoctrination like it is the second coming of christ yet I honestly cant remember the examiner giving it more than a second look. I am sure they did and I just was excited to be getting it done, but it surely wasn't a big drawn out ordeal. In addition, I didn't have a traditional logbook, digital only and due to an issue many years ago, I had to provide 8710's to back up my data, so I would be a worst case scenario in terms of verifying everything.

A lot depends how much flight time and ratings you have. They want to make sure you have all the flight time you need so you can get your ratings. Now, Iím sure they want to document any qualifying time towards captain upgrade. They want to be able to force you to that left seat as soon as they can, especially if they are paying you bonus as an HVA.

I had my my ATP, but no qualifying time when I started. They made a big deal about bringing it to Indoc, but no one looked at my logbook then and I didnít need it for the type ride either.

Old guy here with exp, got an interview in June. Getting hints about what to expect from the previous replys. I guess i'm signing up for the HVA deal. Looks like life on RR in LGA, but to tell you the truth--I don't really mind it.

So about the sim deal--is it set up with a g1000 as a Baron or ??

The last one (frasca) that I flew was in the late 80's and it was a pile of junk.

If youíre worried about currency go to a flight school and do an hour in the Sim to brush up and blow out the cobwebs before game day.
