Study the Aspen and Rifle approach and departure plates. Questions will be asked about climb grads, radio set up on the approach into Aspen, etc.
Be prepared to discuss your background. They like Part 135/fractional background. Some 121 guys on board.
Very low stress interview, a get to know you type thing. In a few months they may give you a sim session in PBI when the Piaggio sim comes up. So now you get to skip that. Interview probably in PIE or CDW. Depends on where you live.
I think whats going on at nja is the best thing to happen to g.a. in a long time. I disagree with some of their tactics, such as same pay for all fleets, and retro pay, but their going to get something, that means the rest of us frac guys will get more. The frac life has now become a stepping stone job, when it should be a career job. Now back to your regulary scheduled program.
I heard a good avantair story the other day. I guess you guys got a new owner/customer and they had to do there first 5-6 trips in a BE-200 due to unavailable Piaggio's. I would be very pissed if I was in that boat.
Are you coming on as PIC? I've been in FL now for a bit more than 2 weeks. First week at Flightsafety, then over to PIE. PM me and I can give you some scoop. I can attest to the fact that for a turboprop this thing is a rocket!
I just saw a Piaggio ad with the Collins-equipped Avanti. Will Avantair be getting any of the upgraded cockpit versions themselves? What percentage of any new Avantis will be the upgraded version in the future?
Also, any recent news or rumors about more jet aircraft in the future (beyond the few Premier Jets already on the property)?
