Event Date: 
Wednesday, April 3, 2019 - 7:00pm

Have you ever wanted to win on Jeopardy?  Well now you have that chance, and the prize is a career as a professional Charter pilot.  Join us as master of ceremony Ben Taber reveals the top 35 questions used by intake recruiters to test pilot knowledge.  Do you have what it takes? Are you willing to risk your aviation reputation on the final Jeopardy?

But seriously, some of you may be interested in a future career as a professional pilot.  We have invited Ben Taber, noted aviation lecturer, to share with us the intake questionnaire used in screening pilot applicants at his charter organization.  Passing this quiz is the first step in the hiring process. It lets them weed out the future captains from the sky jockeys.



Capt. Bennett Taber is a check airman and training captain with over 20 years and 16,000 hours of air charter experience throughout the western United States. His first 500 hours of flying were conducted in Alaska. Captain Taber manages flight operations and charter sales for Dreamline Aviation in the San Francisco Bay Area and is a Dreamline Training Captain in Beech King Air aircraft.

SCFC is committed to promoting safety in general aviation through our regular safety seminar and guest speaker programs.  Space is often limited so it is important to sign up early.
