January 22 (Wed) 7PM - Do You Have What it Takes?

Event Date: 
Wednesday, January 22, 2020 - 12:00pm to 1:30pm

 

What is the most intense job interview you have ever had?  When you knew you really wanted the position but also knew that one wrong answer would get your resume deposited in the circular file.  For Commercial Pilots trying to enter the world of charter aviation and/or corporate flying, that first job interview may seem daunting.

SCFC has invited Ben Taber a Training Captain for Dreamline Aviation, to reveals the top questions used by intake recruiters to test Commercial Pilot knowledge.  Do you have what it takes?  Are you willing to risk your aviation reputation?  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.

If you are ever wondering what a professional flying interview feels like, you don’t want to miss out on this opportunity to experience it yourself.

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.
