Default Up comining Compass interview

The letter said you have to take a knowledge test as well as a sim evaluation . Does anybody know what you need to study for this knoeledge test? Heading out MSP Thrusday. I hope I do all right 11,000 Hours Saab , Beech 1900 Type.

So ahh, what's the story with the NWA guys? Are they behind this, or is this going to be one of those situations?

11,000 hours on the Saab? Why not go to CAL or SWA, or any other airline in better shape?

Because CAL SW have not called me for an interview . it's not as easy as you think to get some of these good airlines attention as one would think. With all you turbojet jocks out there it seems that turboprop CPT are not that marketable.

I hear SWA is partial to prop guys, particularly 1900 drivers. Well, either way best of luck, I hope you get it, if it's what you want.

One thing they did not give me was a Phone Call they sent me a Fedex letter and a E-mail with interview date. I applied on Mar 1 recieved letter on Mar 30. I interview on Friday. I have not flown in a year almost so I hope I will do OK in the sim.

I know 2 guys who were captains on the SF340 that both got jobs with SWA, I wouldn't give up if I were you. Plus one of them didn't even have the 73 type when he got the job offer.

I have been driving all night and getting ready to go to Bed.
I Don't have a flying job right now so this is a good chance to get back in.
It looks like things maybe getting better in this industry. I miss a lot
