The PSA Story

P

SA Airlines has a long history that includes more than a few name changes, but never a change in the commitment to our customers and employees. The regional carrier went from a small commuter airline, Vee Neal Airlines operating in Latrobe, Pennsylvania, to a wholly owned subsidiary of US Airways Group in 1987 as Jet Stream International Airlines. In order to preserve the trademark of an earlier acquired west coast carrier, US Airways changed the name of Jetstream International Airlines a final time to PSA Airlines in 1995. After the acquisition by US Airways, PSA flew under the US Airways Express brand, and operated a fleet of 30 Dornier 328 turboprop aircraft. In 2003, PSA began its current relationship with Bombardier by integrating the CRJ 200 and CRJ 700 regional jets. Now PSA is the largest Bombardier carrier for American Airlines and operates nearly 400 daily flights to more than 80 destinations. In 2013, US Airways and American Airlines’ historic merger formed the American Airlines Group, Inc., which announced a large investment in their wholly owned regional carriers. AAG announced a regional jet order that included firm orders for 30 Bombardier CRJ 900 NextGen aircraft to be operated by PSA Airlines. Additionally, this past February, American Airlines announced that it would continue to invest in PSA, exercising an additional 24 of its 40 CRJ900 NextGen options for PSA service along with transferring 47 CRJ 700 aircraft to PSA - bringing the total committed aircraft to 150 CRJs. The firm fleet plan put in place by American Airlines makes PSA the fastest growing regional airline in the industry. To date, the airline includes more than 2,200 employees and will add

more than 1,000 more professional men and women to the team.

What does it mean to be the fastest growing regional airline? PSA’s fleet growth has resulted in more than 600 newly hired pilots in the last year and a multitude of career and advancement opportunities for every work group. In addition to adding 101 aircraft to the fleet, PSA built a new Operations Control Center in the airline’s headquarters of Vandalia, OH and opened a new pilot base in Cincinnati, OH along with 2 new maintenance bases in Nashville, TN and Cincinnati, OH. In 2014, PSA hired 50-60 pilots each month, delivered up to three brand new aircraft each month and continued that growth through 2015. 2016 will bring more aircraft, more growth and more opportunities for the employees at PSA. In September, PSA and the Airline Pilots Association reached a tentative agreement that if passed, will incrementally double the number of PSA pilots that will flow to American Airlines without an interview.

More Planes, More Options PSA’s current fleet consists of 35 CRJ-200 model aircraft with 50 economy seats, 22 CRJ-700 model aircraft with nine First Class and 54 economy seats and 30 CRJ-900 NextGen model aircraft with nine First Class and 67 economy seats. The CRJ-900 fleet will grow to 54 aircraft by August 2016, and 39 CRJ-700s will join the fleet during 2017. The committed PSA fleet of aircraft is setting a new standard for comfort and convenience in regional air travel.

Interview with Captain Valarie Zimmerman, Lead Pilot Recruiter Pre Interview: Craig: What can an applicant do to increase their chances of being called for an interview? Valarie: One of the biggest mistakes we see is an incomplete or partial application. Many applicants omit previous employment information if it is not aviation related. We may end up not selecting very qualified applicants based on incomplete applications. C: V:

What is the process once a new pilot candidate applies at PSA Airlines? Once the pilot candidate completes the online application at www.psaairlines.com, the recruitment team is hard at work to review the application within 24 hours. Once the pilot’s qualifications have been reviewed, the recruiting team reaches out via email to coordinate space positive travel arrangements for an interview. All of the pilot interviews are held in Charlotte, NC at the American Airlines Training Center.

Interview: C: V:

Can you walk me through a typical day of interviews? The interview day begins with a greeting from the interview team. We like to take time to introduce ourselves and discuss the growth and opportunities available at PSA. After introductions and questions, we administer a 25 question written exam. We then break to individual panel interviews. The panel will spend some time discussing HR questions, weather, FARs, Jeppesen review and CRM. There will also be a technical review that will cover instrument flight rules, chart knowledge, aerodynamics and other relevant topics.

14 | Aero Crew News

Written test: C: V:

Is there a written or computer test? There is a 25 question written test.

C: V:

What can you recommend applicants study for the written test? When is the written test taken? The questions are similar to those seen on the ATP written. Candidates should also be familiar with instrument flight rules and instrument approach procedures. The test is completed prior to the panel interviews. The applicant must pass the test with an 80% or higher in order continue in the interview process.

Simulator Evaluation: C: V:

Do you have a simulator ride? No. At this time, PSA is not administering a simulator evaluation for First Officer candidates.

Post Interview: C: V:

Do you tell applicants they are hired in person that day? No.

C: V:

How long do applicants have to wait to know if they are hired? We do our best to notify pilots as quickly as possible. Once the decisions have been returned, an HR representative will notify the pilot if he or she will be moving forward in the hiring process as early as 24 hours but no longer than 1 week.

Back to Contents


Interview cont... C: V:

How soon can an applicant expect a class date after being hired? PSA is starting a new pilot class every other week. We attempt to offer every successful pilot a class as quickly as possible. For some pilots this has been as quickly as 1 to 2 weeks but is averaging about 30 days.

General: C: V:

How many pilots does your airline expect to hire? PSA is looking to hire 1000 pilots in the next 24 months.

C: V:

Does PSA have any kind of pilot referral program? Yes! Current PSA pilots can earn up to $1000 for each successful pilot referral.

C: V:

How long before a new pilot can expect to upgrade? PSA is experiencing historically low upgrade time right now. A new pilot can expect to be eligible for upgrade as soon as he or she meets the requirements of FAR

121.436. For a new pilot without any prior 121 experience, this is averaging about 1.5 years. Pilots who meet the requirements of FAR 121.436 can expect to upgrade after logging 300 hours with PSA or about 8 months.

C: V:

Can you describe the career path agreement that PSA has with American Airlines? Yes! PSA Airlines has a well-defined career path with American Airlines. American Airlines will interview every PSA pilot in seniority order and hire 4 PSA pilots per month. The PSA pilots that have interviewed with American Airlines have enjoyed great success under this program. So far over 60 PSA pilots have moved on to American Airlines. In September, PSA Airlines and the Airline Pilot’s Association reached a tentative agreement that if ratified, will convert this special selection process to a pure flow and incrementally double the number of PSA pilots that will flow to American Airlines.

XOJET pioneered a refreshing new way to fly private, one focused on people, flexibility and value. Unlike our competitors, XOJET replaces the complications and rigidity of traditional fractional and jet card programs with the ultimate ease of use – simply known as on-demand flying. In 2015 alone, XOJET delivered a 20% increase in direct sales driven by a 56% increase in program sales, one of the fastest growth rates in the industry.

Our modern day solution continues to serve a growing client base of over 5,000 worldwide, specifically catering to the most sophisticated leisure and business flyers across all industry sectors. With our pilots at the forefront of the XOJET experience, our clients have come to appreciate the very best flying experience the industry has to offer. OUR MISSION Our mission is to be the trusted advisor and service provider of choice to the most sophisticated private aviation consumers, both businesses and individuals. We serve our clients by bringing them the very best service and people the industry has to offer.

October 2015 | 19


OUR FLEET XOJET owns and operates the industry’s largest super mid-size fleet of Bombardier Challenger 300 and Cessna Citation X aircraft. With a mix of over 40 modern jets, our complementary fleet types are the quintessential luxury private jet experience, offering XOJET pilots and clients the speed, comfort and economics for true North American flying. The Challenger 300 fleet is quieter and more spacious than any private aircraft in its class – and is the preferred jet among Fortune 500 executives. While the time-saving Citation X cuts a typical San Francisco to New York flight to just four hours and twenty minutes, traveling at nearly Mach 0.92. Together, our jets deliver an outstanding combination of performance and comfort. FLYING FOR XOJET XOJET is a company with a strong sense of values focused on our people. We are committed to supporting the highest standards of business ethics in every aspect of our operations. We vigilantly embrace safety, integrity, transparency, collaboration and continuous improvement, and we expect everyone to play a key role in maintaining and upholding these values. We invest the time and energy to recruit and hire great aviators who are also good people we will enjoy working with. Whether you fly with XOJET for two or twenty years, we hope you will make lifelong friends. Flying for XOJET, each day brings a different destination. We complete thousands of trips per year to coastal metropolitan centers like New York, Los Angeles, and San Francisco. In addition, our clients frequently travel to picturesque mountain destinations such as Aspen, Jackson Hole, and Bozeman, as well as sun-seeking island havens throughout the Caribbean. The variety of missions we fly is frequently cited as one of the highlights of the job. On the road, we strive to provide a safe and comfortable quality of life. XOJET pilot committees rigorously vet preferred overnight hotels and benchmark against a quality standard. In addition, crews may request rental cars – adding convenience and mobility to overnight stays. XOJET crews enjoy positive space travel on commercial airlines from their home airport to their Challenger 300 or Citation X jet.

Lastly, your rotation schedule is determined for a full year in advance. As a result, enjoy planning your time away from work with certainty and every other weekend off-rotation. All training is paid by the company and is conducted during scheduled rotations, so it does not interfere with days off. The vacation schedule is also determined for a full year, enabling you to plan time off well in advance. Initially, pilot employees accrue one week of vacation starting immediately on their date of hire. Over time, XOJET pilots may take 20 consecutive days away from work up to three times per year, depending on seniority. OUR FUTURE Next year, we celebrate 10 years of excellence, and with the backing of two of the world’s largest and most respected private capital investors, TPG Capital and Aabar PJS, the sky is no longer the limit. We anticipate further growth within the industry by expanding our world-class services through fleet additions, strategic partnerships, and more.

Exclusive interview with Chris Crocker, Chief Pilot and Oxana Shepel, Senior Human Resources Specialist, Recruiting and Compliance. Craig: How do you select applicants to be brought in for an interview? XOJET: One of the most important things about XOJET is our culture and that our people truly matter. We vigilantly embrace compassion, integrity, collaboration and continuous improvement, and our employees play a key role in maintaining and upholding these values. It is extremely important to us to ensure that we hire good people who support our high standards of business ethics in every aspect of our operation. We therefore strive to hire only the best!

Initially all pilots are screened for the flight time requirements, technical ability, experience and background before we bring them in for an interview. We are very proud of our diverse workforce and seek out pilots with a varied background to include corporate, 121 military and retirees. Our planes are piloted by some of the industry’s most talented crews.

Craig: XOJET:

What can an applicant do to increase their chances of being called for an interview? We place a high value on internal recommendations. Many applicants are recommendations from current or former employees. These can be friends or co-workers with whom the employee has previously worked. We place a lot of trust and value in our employee recommendations. Our employees take great pride in their recommendations and don’t make them lightly. They are “good people” and they typically want to surround themselves with other “good people.” In turn, we find that referrals really want to work here and be part of the culture that we have created.

Craig: XOJET:

So what do you do if you don’t know someone at XOJET? Attending a job fair is a great way to get to know us. Many of our applicants have come to our booth at various events just to hang out. We always have some of our pilots on hand available to answer questions and give firsthand knowledge about the job. It is a great way to hear more about us and see if they might be a good fit.

You can also say hello to one of our crewmembers at an FBO. They are happy to tell you about the job, the company and the great pilot team that we have at XOJET. They are the typically the happiest ones in the FBO, just look for the ones without the ties!

If you don’t know someone at the company or are unable to attend a job fair, we encourage you to apply online by visiting our website @ www.xojet.com/careers and submit an application. For additional questions, please contact PilotRecruitment@xojet.com

Craig: XOJET:

How critical is it to attend a job fair to get an interview? It can be difficult to determine whether someone is a good fit from an impersonal application system. We place huge value on the ability to meet someone in person.

Craig: XOJET:

What is the best way to prepare for an interview with your company? First and foremost, just be yourself! After that, a little preparation can go a long way. During the phone screen process, come prepared to discuss you resume, training, work and flight history. Be upfront and honest about challenges in your career and the reasons for your interest in XOJET. We are not interested in perfection but we are interested in finding the right person to join our team.

For your technical screen brush up on standard ATP knowledge. Be familiar with NOTAM’s, weather, charts, and Part 135 regulations. However, during your interview we take into consideration your current operational regulations.

Be prepared to discuss experiences where you learned from mistakes and went above and beyond. Lastly, be prepared to tell us about yourself. Integrity and humility are key elements in our culture. Who you are beyond the pilot, what you value, and what is important in your life.

Craig: XOJET:

Can you walk me through a typical day of interviews? Once the pre-screening process is completed which includes a technical interview, we fly all applicants to our Operations Center in Sacramento, CA. Candidates are overnighted in a local hotel and treated to dinner the night before the interview with members of our pilot group, our flight operations management team and Human Resources. Many times a member of our Executive Team will also join in. Our candidates are very important to us and we truly appreciate and value their time.

This is a great opportunity for applicants to get to know us and talk with some of the folks they may eventually fly with. This is a casual, low-stress event and typically puts


applicants at ease. We find it is always helpful to see a friendly face the next day.

The next morning candidates are taken to our Operations Center where they are given a tour of our facility and introduced to more of the team. They will then go through a series of 5 to 6 panel interviews with various employees throughout our company. All employees are involved in our interview process so the panel may include management, schedulers, sales advisors and most certainly fellow pilots who volunteer to interview. Typically we conduct two or three panels in the morning then take a break for lunch provided by the company. During lunch other employees throughout the company like to stop in to say hello. The final panel interviews take place in the afternoon, then a car service will transport candidates back to the airport for their flights home.

We really try to provide a relaxed atmosphere throughout the entire process in order to relieve some of the stress and nerves that get in the way of getting to know someone. We also limit the number of candidates in our on-site interview sessions to six so that everyone has the opportunity to get to know us as well.

Craig: What kind of questions can an applicant expect to be asked? XOJET: This question is challenging to answer. Our interview process is all about getting to know the person. If you get this far into our process we know you can fly and meet our high level of safety standards. Now, we want to get to know you more as an overall person and ensure you will you enjoy working at XOJET. We also want to ensure you are a good person who is enjoyable to work with. Therefore each interview is a little different. You can think about our process as more of a series of conversations. It is also important to note that this should be a two-way conversation. We want to ensure you are making a good decision to fly with XOJET. Therefore, we encourage candidates to ask lots of questions. Craig: XOJET:

Can you give me some examples of the TMATT questions that you like to ask? Tell me about a time you had to make a decision that has defined who you are now? Tell me about a time you wish you could change a decision you made? Tell me about a time you made someone’s day?

Craig: XOJET:

If the TMAAT question being asked does not apply to that applicant can that question be skipped? This rarely happens in practice. In most cases these type of questions could apply to anyone.

Craig: What are some of the biggest mistakes that applicants

22 | Aero Crew News

XOJET:

make during the interview process? Most of the time applicants don’t really make a mistake, rather it becomes clear that they may be better suited in a different environment. For this reason it is important to be candid and honest throughout the process. We don’t expect people to have never made mistakes. To the contrary, we find the best candidates tend to hold themselves personally accountable and are able to articulate what they have learned from their mistakes.

Written test: Craig: Is there a written or computer test? XOJET: No Simulator Evaluation: Craig: Do you have a simulator ride? XOJET: No. Our technical interview ensures the candidate’s ability and knowledge level. A very high emphasis is placed on this technical screen to meet XOJET’s industry leading standards of safety. Post Interview: Craig: XOJET:

Do you tell applicants they are hired in person that day? We try to notify candidates as soon as possible after each stage in the interview process and we know it can be stressful to wait for that call. As previously discussed, our interview process includes many employee volunteers, and we value input from everyone involved. As a result, it does take us a couple of days to finalize the process. In most cases candidates can expect to receive a phone call within 1-3 days. Importantly, a candidate will NOT receive a form letter if they have taken the time to come meet with us. Regardless whether a candidate is right for the job, we treat everyone with respect and always deliver a personal phone call.

Craig: XOJET:

How soon can an applicant expect a class date after being hired? Interviews are generally scheduled so that candidates who are offered a position have an opportunity to provide two weeks’ notice to their current employer. If a candidate needs to provide additional notice, later class dates can usually be accommodated.

Craig: How many pilots does your company expect to hire this year? XOJET: It’s hard to predict precisely, but likely in the ballpark of forty. These new hires tend to occur roughly evenly throughout the entire year. If you are reading this article and XOJET sounds like the place you would like to call your home away from home, please reach out to us. We would be pleased to answer any of your questions.

Contract Talks

Moving Expenses

Written by: Scott Stahl

W

hen considering total compensation packages for an airlines, the benefits must also be weighed as compensation; as many of the Contract Talk articles have alluded to. Given the volatility of airline operations (especially at the “Fee for Departure” or “Regional” level), it is not uncommon for crew bases or hubs to shrink, expand, close, open, or relocate altogether there is a good chance that a pilot’s base will change multiple times in their careers. Obviously, if there is a base change, a pilot is faced with one of two options. They can either relocate to the new base, or they can commute to the new base. Many pilots choose to commute, but many also decide to relocate due to the time investment and difficulty associated with commuting to a base. One of the benefits that some airlines will provide, but others won’t are coverage of moving expenses associated with a base change. Of course, some companies may cover certain costs, but not all, while others will cover everything, and some will cover nothing. This coverage can have a profound effect on the difficulty associated with base relocations. Let’s consider an example: We will assume that Airline A covers all actual moving related expenses and provides movers (with a 12 month limitation on coverage from time of transfer), while Airline B doesn’t cover any. In the case of Airline A, when the pilot is notified they will be changing base (sometimes with only a few weeks notice) it will be required for the pilot to notify the company that the move will need to take place. Once that occurs, the company will provide moving service that shows up at the old location, loads the furniture, and transports it to the new location free of charge. If, in the example of Airline A, the pilot also has a family that is not able to move right away (school is in session, etc) then they will be provided with this covered moving coverage for up to 12 months from the time they are notified. This provides much greater flexibility for the pilot and their family during the transition period, and once ready to fully move, the company will still provide the transportation and cover the expenses.

In the case of Airline B, it will be left to the responsibility of the pilot and their family, to not only plan the move but also to pay for it and execute it. If the pilot is commuting in the time between the pilot’s transfer and the actual move, this can have a tremendous impact on quality of life and job scheduling, as they may have to use vacation time or other compensated time off in order to have the time required to move. Of course, that doesn’t cover the potentially thousands of dollars related to the cost of the move. Some companies may not elect to provide the actual moving service, but may reimburse for expenses related to the move within a certain time frame. In this case, it is important that the moving crewmember keep track of all expenses and costs associated for reimbursement of expenses. This provides a pretty good amount of flexibility on the part of the crewmember, but it is also has the same drawbacks of the crewmember having to actually plan and execute the move, while covering the initial up front cost of the move until reimbursement is complete. While such expenses may not be common to a crew member, with the very unpredictable cost associated with a move, as well as the large time investment required to move, it can have a profound effect on the crew’s direct compensation for the year, and can also have a large effect on quality of life for a number of months. Either way, moving benefits are one of the seldom used forms of compensation that can have a measurable effect on a crew’s quality of life in tumultuous times.

he following pages contain over 30 different contractual comparisons for 10 separate mainline airlines. Almost all the data was collect from each individual airlines contract. Our goal is to provide you with the most current and up to date data so that as a pilot you can choose the right airline for you. Every pilot looks for something different out of the airline they work for. Whether it’s living in base, maximizing your pay, or chasing that quick upgrade, we will have the most current and up to date information. To do this, we are working with the airlines to make sure this data is up to date and correct. Good luck and fly safe! Aircraft Types
