Crew_Life_Part_2

Immediately after completing training you will be propelled into the aviation world of “crew life”. As a new first officer you will be accompanied by a captain and flight attendants who might use crew jargon. We want you to be prepared to jump right into the conversation with them. Below are a few of the terms you’ll hear from your crew:

Nap: Occurs when a pilot leaves their designated hub late at night to arrive to their destination early in the morning. Upon arrival to their destination they have 3-4 hours at the hotel to rest and then immediately following fly back to their hub. CRJ pilots commonly refer this as a nap however ERJ pilots tend to call these “standups”.

Severe Weather Avoidance Plan (SWAP): When severe weather disrupts air traffic near a hub an airline will declare SWAP, which develops a strategy to manage the severe weather event while maintaining the daily operations of the airline. SWAP will hold the airline to a different set of rules when it comes to rescheduling, canceling flights, and other avenues of maintaining the safety of both passengers and crew during extreme weather conditions.

IROP (Irregular Operation): This occurs when a flight fails for any reason to operate on schedule is cancelled, or has a change of equipment which cannot accommodate all confirmed passengers boarded the aircraft during the check-in process.

Time-Out: Crews are limited to the amount of duty time they are legally able to complete each day due to FAA regulations and union contractual agreements. This period of time ensures that crews are able to get the mandatory rest they need in order to safely operate their next scheduled flight.

We want to help you make the smart choice for your future by providing you with the information you need to know. If you have any questions about our crew life or work rules, visit flysmartchoice.com. In the upcoming weeks, we will be bringing you more aviation vocab terms.

Interview Anywhere Map CLE-01

 

At ExpressJet, we understand that you may have flying or other obligations that prevent you from traveling to a traditional interview in Atlanta or Houston. We are committed to providing you with flexible availability that will allow you to interview with our chief pilots, who will serve as your advocates throughout your career, at any of our bases, at any time.

Here’s how it works:

  1. Complete an application at expressjet.com/apply or via AirlineApps*
  2. Choose a date and base to visit at tinyurl.com/XJTChiefPilots
  3. ExpressJet recruiters – all pilots themselves – will contact you to confirm a date and time
  4. Interview with a chief pilot, tour the base and – hopefully – leave with a conditional job offer (CJO)!

*Candidates must be within six months of earning ATP/R-ATP requirements

Why would I want to meet with a chief pilot?
Chief pilots are your support system at each base. Their role is multifaceted, focused on being an advocate and mentor for their pilots. They also oversee flight operations and performance in their base, and they’re the person you’d come to if you have questions about your schedule, have a family emergency or need career advice. It’s always good to get to know the “boss” before you start a new job, and this is your opportunity to see how great ExpressJet’s leaders are.

What is a chief pilot interview?
The chief pilot interviews are exactly like our regular pilot interviews in our Atlanta or Houston offices. You’ll meet with the chief pilot and a recruiter, complete a knowledge/skills test and an HR interview, and – hopefully – leave with a conditional job offer (CJO)! Besides not having to travel far if you’re local to a base, you’ll also get to tour your future digs, meet your future boss and get a taste of what your days will be like as an ExpressJet first officer.

Where can I interview?
You can interview at any of our crew domiciles: Atlanta, Chicago, Cleveland, Dallas, Detroit, Houston or Newark.

When can I interview?
Anytime. You tell us your availability and we will do everything we can to make that happen.

Where do I schedule my interview with my future chief pilot?
First, make sure you’ve completed a first officer application at expressjet.com/apply. Then, sign up for a base and date at tinyurl.com/XJTChiefPilots.

Once your information is received, a member of the ExpressJet Airlines Pilot Recruitment team will be in touch to set up your appointment. We’ll see you soon!

AP3 Camp Stats-01
