I’m aware that it’s mostly HR questions however would greatly appreciate if anyone would let me know about any technical stuff.
Most threads I’ve read are a bit dated so looking to get the most current info.
Good luck! I really enjoyed my time at Porter. The people you work with are what many past employees miss the most.
Think along the lines of the CAP Gen.
- Approach bans
- RVOP / LVOP
- SCDA Approaches
- LNAV/VNAV, LPV Approaches
- RNP-AR Approaches
- CAT II Approaches
- Holding Speeds
Also know a few things like:
- GDP / APREQ / TMI
- CFRI / Contaminated Runways / TALPA
- Deicing/Antiicing / HOT Tables
Hope that helps,
I'm not going to spoon feed them the answer, and the candidate shouldn't expect it either.
Put yourself in the interviewing boards members' shoes. How would one differentiate between the candidates, if everyone provides the same "canned answers".
The answer is rhetorical of course, the main aspect of the interview is behavioral/personality oriented as mentioned.
The technical questions is to see what experience level they're at. If you've operated at a 703/704, some of those terms aren't new. If you've come only from instructing, then you have some homework/research to do. The ideal candidate would be prepared, and willing to go beyond the minimums set out to get the job.
Does that make me a sadist? Hardly ... You're applying for a 705 job! In my eyes, it's the the 'major league' if using a sports metaphor. You're expected to have the basic down, with some knowledge of how the game is played.
If I was on the interview board, I'd look for a candidate that I can get along with personality wise (you may have to fly with this person on a 4 day pairing); someone who is willing/able to be taught/mentored (they are future Captains in my eyes); and is able to operate an aircraft safely in a two-crew environment.
As a candidate, if you'e able to learn quickly, are actively involved, and have a sense of the operation; you become an asset to the company.
The dynamic in the flight deck becomes more of "two people operating the aircraft safely, taking people from point A to B". How you convey that to the interview board is the challenge.
All the best to those who apply!
