Does anyone know where to find an interview gouge for the ATR FO position? The usual suspects don't have many up to date reports. Worst thing to do Is get caught like a deer in the headlights with the technical portion...if they get into the nitty gritty.

I heard there may be a class in late April for C208. Not sure about the ATR's.

Well darn missed the opening in SEA looks like they hired someone before I was able to finish up my night hours.

Maybe next time ....

Seems like they base it off experience. I had some 135 time going into the interview and they didn't really ask anything technical, only a couple "tell me what you would do if..." I heard others that were instructors when getting interviewed got a couple tech questions.

Don't sweat it too much, I haven't heard anyone say that the interview was tough. Its all over the phone too, so just have an IFR cheat sheet in front of you so that you don't space out and say something stupid

The interview is casual, HR phone call with TMAT and WWYD questions. If that goes well, you talk to one of the CPs. They both know what they are looking for experience wise, so neither of them are going to try to getcha with obscure questions.

In other news, this was announced today.

I saw that today in the morning. It looks promising, just like the regionals are doing. How long in theory could the process take say starting at 1200 on the Caravan, to FedEx? Also I heard Empire is getting the new Cessna Skycouriers in 2020.

Guys in my base are flying 10 to 28 hours a month in the 208. Not sure about other bases. The ATR crews are flying about 1.5 times that.

I believe the program requires a min commitment to Empire of 36 months and 500 121 pic, and Fedex wants 2500 total.

From a start of 1200 total time like you specify, figuring 25 hrs a month my math garners me 52 months, or 4.3 years at my domicile.

That of course doesn't factor in any other variables.

Provided a guy meets all the other requirements Fedex wants, one could build the time a lot faster in other ways.

I guess the variable is how much weight they are going to give Empire connection.

The Cessna twins...weren't those getting built in China and now possibly Trumped?
