Default Aperture Aviation

550 total time Commercial multi engine land instrument rated.

Just looking for an email or contact for the chief pilot or someone to give me

a rundown of what are the best steps to succeeding the interview and sim.

I won’t apply until I get my CFII renewed it expired 5 or so years ago.

Seriously at this point getting back in the game, any help is appreciated.

There’s another thread with the same name. I just checked their website and there’s a careers page with emails and an application...
A quick search on LinkedIn shows the chief pilot which you can connect through there. If you’re interested in a job do the leg work.

I applied there two years ago out of the blue. Just happen to see them mentioned on this website. I actually got an interview and an offer to come down to California for an in person. I declined, but the guy I talked to was real nice.

I just applied on their website.

Have a friend that worked there. They are a well run company and treat employees well it seems, but you will not get much flight time. My friend barely cracked 250 hours in one year of flying for them.

The real issue is, they fly dual crew on all of their missions. Good for safety of course, but there is no way for the non-flying pilot to actually log the time. So half of the time you are spending up in the air will be useless from a flight time perspective.

Always thought about this, but if you were a CFI couldn't you log the time? or as "safety pilot". I feel like there are ways around it.
