The official hiring process is to apply on their website and wait. The unofficial hiring process is to talk to them in a deployed location or have someone bring your resume in to their chief pilot.

My personal experience is I walked a resume in to their lead pilot while deployed with the AF. I had an interview there, and he passed on my info to the chief pilot. I was called for a phone interview about 6 months later (I wasn't available until then) and after that I was hired. No test, no sims, just basic questions about willingness to live in crappy locations and what you know about their mission.

I have a phone interview with the CP at L-3 next week. Is that all I will expect? Does he ask any other questions? Thanks for your help

I had a chat with those guys last week at an undisclosed location and they said the same thing. know a guy, meet a guy, get a phone call/interview, get a contract, sign contract get a plane ticket in the mail. The irony is even w/ Fed Ex type mins I don't have any turbo prop time and that's becoming an insurance req. I'd have to go slumming to get the type of time they want.

Ironic that I don't have any precious jet time and only have turbo prop time; it was my t prop time that got me the job, not jet time.

I am an ATP MEL with 3000 total, 1000 turbine (helicopter), 500 MEL, etc. Been deployed 3 times, and have flown ISR missions in Iraq and Afghanistan. I have a SECRET security clearance.

I have zero king air time (or turboprop), and didn't get an interview. They really want turboprop time.

I have the opposite problem, over 8,000 hrs. of turbo prop time. But I don't know anyone at any of the ISR employers.....yet.
