Default SA-227 information manual and limitations needed

I was wondering if anyone have a Metroliner SA-227 lying around for sale. It could be AC or AT doesnt matter. I have an interview with a cargo company here locally and would like to study up on the aircraft. Also any limitation information would be great. Please help me out.

All you really need to know is to keep your airspeed at redline on downwind.... redline minus 10 on base..... final you pull the power levers back to ~25%.... flaps flaps gear flaps.... screeeeeeeech......"Well.... we're here."

In all seriousness.... you won't be expected to know much if anything about the SAT Sewer tube... and maybe its just me but it might look bad if you go in and start spouting numbers and get them wrong.

My advice.... sit back relax and enjoy the interview.... and if you get hired.... then worry about sucking all the knowledge presented to you in class.

Who are you interviewing with if they are going to ask you questions about an airplane you've never flown? or maybe you have flown one?

Not at any place I have ever interviewed, unless of course you had flown that particular a/c before.

Generally they want to know all about the plane your currently flying. It shows that you can be trained.

B18onboost if you listen to nothing else the rest of your life listen to this....stay away from Sierra West or the only book you will be reading on a regular basis is the one dealing with emergency procedures. The aircraft are garbage with a capital G!
