Hello guys,
I was browsing in the internet and writing down the answers of the interview questions.
There are some amazing ones which i wanted to know the correct answers of.


What things are associated with a mountain wave?
Deviation changes due to what?
What is the relationship between TAS, Mach number, and Speed of Sound in an equation?
QNH set to 989 instead of 998 What will the error be?
What is the definition of a wet runway in mm of water?
What is the difference in ground-looping tendencies between a tail dragger and tricycle gear?


If your spouse were sitting here, what would they say is your biggest weakness?
Why do you want to work for XYZ?
Why are we just hearing from you now?
What is something you don't like about your current company?
Have you applied anywhere else? What if you receive another job offer, which job will you take?
Tell me about a time you made a mistake in the cockpit
You land on a wet runway, autobrakes applied and reversers deployed, and the airplane starts to skid. What do you do and why?

Well there are 158 of them i solved, and found a few doubts.Hopefully you guys can help me get these.
Thanks.

Only the first six questions have a correct answer. The second group of questions depend on YOU. Just answer them honestly rather than worrying about what the "correct" answers are.


Last year 1,944 New Yorkers saw something and said something.

Some of those answers just don't have a correct answer, but they do send the interviewer a message about your attitude.
Airlines want to get to know you before they hire you. This is what a lot of these questions are all about.
If you knew the answers to all these questions, you'd probably sound robotic to the interviewer. On some of these questions the interviewer would expect you to think a little bit before responding. If you respond to everything too quickly they may get suspicious.
And remember, it's OK to say "I don't know" when you don't really know. Airlines don't want know it all's in the cockpit. They want people who train easily and pay attention. They definitely will be looking at your past training record for blown checkrides, FAR violations, repeated traiing, etc.

If you're preparing for an interview or want to know what some companies have asked in previous interviews, then definitely check out this website:

What is the relationship between TAS, Mach number, and Speed of Sound in an equation

Wouldn't that just be Mach's equation? Where: M = Vs / U.
Vs = Speed of object or TAS
U = Speed of sound

As TAS goes up or the Speed of Sound goes down, the Mach number is increased.

I believe your indicated altitude will be lower than your actual altitude.

And what about this?

I start wondering what's at the end of the runway and how much it's going to hurt. But then I don't fly the thing anyway...



I've got $h*t to do
