Default Grand Canyon Airlines

Hello guys!

Any GCA pilot around? I had a phone interview a couple of days ago for a March 31st class, and I'd love to get some "fresh" details about the company.

Some guys had to pass a written test and a simulator, but some people did not apparently.

I've been reading interviews and information from the forums from the last 10-12 years, but nothing from the last 1.5-2 years, so I don't know how the process looks nowadays, if it's changed or if stays the same.

I know the twin otter ground school is at boulder city, or it used to be.

Any help would be much appreciated.


Thanks!

There are several good videos on YouTube on how to start a Twin Otter. They taught me how to start a Twin Otter and they might be helpful for you too.

I just accepted an offer from them to fly the C208. Interview was with two of the senior guys. I did not have a sim, had to brief an approach, read a TAF and METAR, and answer some scenario based questions. It went well. We have indoc on the 31st.
