Any ASA poolies out there that are waiting to hear on a class date? Are ther any guys(gals) waiting to go to the interview that need some heads up? I did my interview at the end of july and got my letter saying I was in the pool 10 days later.
I'm trying to get a heads up on how big the pool is.
PM me I'll help if I can

Hey man, I would be interested in some insight, I am hoping to get itnerviewed soon, a good friend of mine is taking my stuff into Julie and Loretta. I am going to assume that you fly for AirNow if you are in an E-110. Anyways, I would appreciate some info. The latest I have heard is a class in Oct and continue each month after that, like I said that is only what I have heard. Looking forward to hearing back. CYA

ASA pool

I have been in since June 27. Some of the my fellow Interviewies were called for the Aug 5 class. I also spoke w/ Capt Boyd today and she confirmed there is going to be a class on the 7th of OCT. She mentioned it might be larger than what they have been running or run two classes. Both Bases and all aircraft.

Spoke to Megan-the-intern in recruiting yesterday.

Good news: October class is on...will decide next week who goes. November class "very likely."

Not-so-good news: There is no "first in, first out"; this means someone who just got in the pool today could go to class before someone who's been swimming for months. Also, Megan said there is "about 100" people in the pool right now. Of course I asked her to put my file on top...she just laughed.

Any July 10/11 interviewees out there?

I just wanted to tell you new folks to email, Lwiekhorst@aol.com, if you want to, she sells a great book with systems and all the oral questions and answers, plus the ref for ASA. It is worth the money and is tit$$s on... A great study guide for ASA folks. I think it is around $25.00. Good Luck to all our new hires and poolies, Great company. If you need any help or have guestions PM me. I have moved on to the RJ and this is one nice airplane..

Her book is helpful but I'd be careful about relying on it while in class. It has a lot of good info but it also has a few errors and some things that aren't mentioned anywhere else that could trip you up. As an example, our company issued manual lists a cargo limitation of 3500# but her study guide lists 3500# and 75#/square foot as limitations. Quote those limits and you'll likely get a funny look from your instructor. The CRJ training at ASA is (in my opinion) top notch and if you pay attention in class and study what you are given you'll have no trouble.

Do not buy or study from the guide mentioned above. It says some strange things that can't be verified. Use only what the company gives you. It is absolutely enough information to do well.
Good luck....

Was informed last night that interviewing for the year was completed this week. They will stop interviewing with about 100 in the pool. Interviewing will resume some time next year. There will be more classes this year, they will draw from the 100 in the pool.
