I have an Interview with Susi in a few weeks, just wondering if anyone knows if the Caravans they operate up there are equipped with ADF's? Trying to decide whether or not to do an ADF endorsement before I leave for Jakarta. Any Info would be very much appreciated. Cheers
A good friend of mine works with suzi air , he got recruited in jan 2011. I remember him telling me that the interview with the chief pilot was quite difficult and they expected him to have a sound knowledge about the caravan's ! and he was asked a question like how many feet is there in a nautical mile and u gotta calculate mentally .then describe in detail on how do u conduct an instrument approach and they want you to be really articulate . then some tests on the computer where u gotta shoot an ILS ( throttle will be controlled by the examiner ) . and brush up on the G1000's aswell . gud luck with ur interview !!
Also don't forget that when you fly in indonesia, the only relevance your aus license has is if it has cpl, ir, me. Although all of then are required in aus operations in indonesia work a little differently, not something I would worry about.
Most of them are on the map and not powered unless prior arrangements..Fuel for the generator is expensive.
Even if it was up and transmitting, you would use the WAAS plate and go for the coordinates instead. If the beacon was working, it would just be a procedural backup. Tell Susi I miss that expensive Gin.
They dont grill you on any ATPL questions. In the past they would grill you on different things depending if you had an instructor rating or not.
The guy who used to do the interviews has moved on to much better things, so im not certain what the questions are.
In the past you would have to explain how a wing stalled using the whiteboard. possibly some MET stuff. Look at an approach plate and discuss what looked good and bad about it. How you may handle a captain that seems to be doing the wrong thing etc.
The SIM check is relatively simple and the exam on the Van is ok too.. If your an Aussie you may need to study things like MORA and MOCA, things that are not used here as well as STANDARD holding patterns, which is a little different seeing we have both left and right patterns here too..
Who are you Davve to demand an answer from your prospective employer? Are you Ibu Susi's gimp? Heaven forbid attitudes like yours. Nobody owes you a living. Go anywhere with that attitude and you WILL be miserable.
