Pilot Interview Profile:

I flew for CCAC for 4 years and can tell you that it is a good 135 operation. The interview process is pretty easy. You can just get your way to Pierre SD and do the interview and the flight check with the Chief Pilot or you can go through training that they have in Minneapolis. The training must be paid for by you. The interview flight is pretty easy since it is done in a Navajo or a Seneca. You can be pretty sure that he will have you do all of the approaches into PIR and he may also give you a LOC BC for runway 13 that he makes up as he goes along. There is no published approach for the LOC BC 13 but he makes it up as you are flying and he does a very good job of it. Expect a failed engine or 2. Not full shut down = just zero thrust. Expect a DME arc, steep turns. Also know how to do the ILS 31 via the VOR transition since that is one of his favorites to have someone do. If you pass you will probably get checked out in both the Senecas, Navajos. Possibly also the 402s and the 414s. The oral for the interview is pretty much a cake walk. Nothing to really worry about. There is not a training contract but they do make you pay for your own training in Minneapolis if necessary. The Chief Pilot is VERY fair. They have bases in Minneapolis, Sioux Falls SD, Pierre SD, Rapid City SD, Fargo ND, Denver CO, and Minot ND. The average pilot flies approx. 100 hours per month with weekends off since most of the flying is bank stuff. Once again, for those of you looking to build time this is a GREAT company to fly for!! I enjoyed it!!!!!

Pilot Interview Profile:
I interviewed with Capital City Air Carrier in August and was offered a position almost immediately. They are lookingfor qualified individuals who are willing to fly a lot! Theinterview was relatively easy. It consisted of a 30 minuteflight in a Piper Seneca. We shot two approaches and hedid fail one engine during the flight, however, we did notfeather the engine. Procedures was the main thing he waslooking for was procedures. The basics count. Anindividual applying with Capital City Air Carrier (CCAC)must be able to pass a 135.297 checkride. The equipment ismostly Senecas but they have some Navajos. I was put in theNavajo and have flown about 175 hours since the middle ofAugust, plus I've logged about 25 hours actual time. Theyfly mostly in the Dakotas and Minnesota. The weather iscrap compared to what I'm used to, however, my skills areincreasing and I'm looking forward to my next interview.
