How is AMF going? Any hiring or growth expected over the next year or so? Also, i hear most new hires going to Burbank and Oakland... is there any base transfer once you are in place?

f16. They have a class starting monday. Dozen or so guys. People leave the company here and there (I don't have numbers) but get your 135 mins and turn in a resume.

Socalskip, word from BUR is pilots around your times were hired recently.

May have already been posted, but what is usually covered in week 1? Any suggestions on ground school?

Thx!

Week 1 involves indoctrination. Indoc. involves a summarization of instrument procedures, WX, Part 61, 91, 135 regs, and you go over the Operations Manual.

Thanks UND. Is there a test of some sort on the first day of indoc?

undflyboy06 08-08-2010 04:44 PM

No, not on the first day. The test is on Friday at the end of your first week. The test involves material that was discussed during indoc. They also give you study material on the side that goes over some material that is from the AIM. I can't remember if that information was on the test, but to be safe I would look at that also.

Iím trying not to create any stress, but it is one of those tests that you have to pass in order to continue on with training. I can't remember, but I think you need a 70% to pass and it ranges from 20-30 questions. Sorry I can't remember the exact number.

It's really easy though. I've only heard of some time building FO's that have failed it.

Just because it's easy doesn't mean they shouldn't study.

I'd be shocked in this industry if someone had a shot at a job, that they wouldn't study

O I agree completely. I'm just saying if you fail this test you obviously didn't study, and it shows a complete lack of motivation. But if you do study it is nothing to worry about.
