Are these materials and the POH issued to us in ground school?

What other materials will we receive?

Can anyone recommend a good/accurate PC-12 version for the Microsoft FS-X flight simulator?

You'll get all the materials needed to get through ground school when you get going in class. Get the computer based training done BEFORE class starts. There is a POH available online that you can reference through class. In fact, virtually all study materials are online so you can reference them any time. They will be available through the employee website. MaxMar's references are good ones. Unless you have someone with legacy PC12 experience to work with you on FS-X, skip it.

I have to schedule my technical interview once i know my work schedule over the next week. What can I expect? I know basic IFR will be part of it. I've never flown part 135 or 121.

They gave me the ILS KIDA approach to review(prior to phone call). Know basic VFR cloud clearance and speed restrictions in various airspace. IFR max holding speeds. Thunderstorm avoidance distance. Know systems of an aircraft youíve flown recently as theyíll ask some technical questions regarding this. Know 91.175, and other various IFR regulations. Part 135 reg. Knowledge isnít necessarily a requirement.

It shouldnít be a problem. Turnover is high.

Default Helicopter turned fixed wing

Hello everyone,
Very interested in this company and becoming an FO. I have 975TT and my CFI/II in helicopters. Out of the 975 TT, 156TT are in fixed wing. I have my commercial license in ASEL/AMEL, and my instrument. Would having lower fixed wing time be a problem? Thanks for the help!

They need captains, get to 1200 and get instrument current if you arenít. Met all other part 135 mins. Good chance youíll get a call.
