Re: Jazz Reqiurements?

For the people who are hating on the low experience pilots coming in, just accept the changing conditions of the industry and encourage and motivate the new candidates coming in. It is no one's fault that there is a pilot shortage, so just ACCEPT that this is how things are and work together to kee...

How does that work? At AirlinePilotCentral, it gives $81/hr for year one @ 80/month, that's $6480 x 12 = $78k :?:

~ 64% from Jazz ( 80% of 80%..)
~ 16% from Sky and GGN

Sound about right?

'Name a time when...' questions

Does anyone have a link to, or list of, 'name a time when...' questions as they pertain to aviation? I've done a bit of Googling, and there's lots of gen about 'name a time when you didn't meet your sales quota' and so forth - all standard office-monkey questions but not much on aeroplanes..
