Assuming you get the interview, the main disqualifiers would be weak IR skills, weak Jepp knowledge and a perceived unwillingness to do the dirty work (i.e. cleaning the interior of the plane on empty legs, restocking the catering and emptying the lav if necessary). There is also a heavy emphasis on personality as you will be interacting directly with the owners and playing the role of gate agent/flight attendant/pilot/psychiatrist.

Once getting to training you'll find that the Honeywell Apex has a steep learning curve. Do everything you can to study up on that before hand.

I suspect they will consider applications for FOs at 500 hours if they feel you have a good handle on all of the above.
I agree with everything but the Honeywell having a steep learning curve. Just as with anything in aviation, you get out what you put in. They teach you the basics and the rest you learn in the sim and on the line. They will hire at 500 hrs. One in my class was close to that (550ish) They need captains in a bad way, though. They also bring you up to speed on the Jepp plates during training. You will need to be familiar with them upon interview however.

Understatement of the year. 3 more put in their two weeks last cycle.

I'm guessing there will be more after the retention "bonus" debacle.

Default First Officer Application

I got an email from HR requesting my documents and the filled out application. Anyone know how long before they might give me a call.(if at all) They said it was for the FO class in late 2017-early 2018.

1. interview process
2. training process
3. average class size

Default Just Wondering - Fall/2017

I just applied to PlaneSense in DFW. Very responsive HR department. Responds to emails very quickly, not a common thing these days. I am looking into a captain spot in DFW for the Fall and am just wondering, (as i read different opinions and situations) what are the chances of getting on? The pool size, and how long between interview and class date usually? I would absolutely love to fly the nice PC-12's they have. But if it's a handfull of months between interview and class, i don't know if i want to do that. If anyone is a reletively new hire or is based in DFW, any help is appreciated! I currently have just over 2K TT and 1800 PIC
