    I guess the same koolaid is served to the media when it comes to Eagle branded pilots of the wholly owned. I’m sure our resident snake oil salesman will be pissed that a lowly PSA pilot was identified in the headline as an American Airlines Pilot.

    A couple more years and he would have been an AA pilot. As nice as the flow is, an interview can be useful to keep the triple murderers out.

    During his interview at PSA he was heard to say “I’d kill to get a chance at the flow”.

    Interviews won’t stop that. Ted Bundy fooled virtually everyone he met and IMO would have breezed through an airline interview process had he been so inclined and qualified. In a former life, I was tasked at the Market Research Firm I worked at to conduct employment interviews. You can’t know everything about people in an hour or so, especially those with the right personality skilled at concealment. The Airline Interview is actually more of a demonstration of the ability to complete a task. Most pilots aren’t particularly good at them, thus the myriad of services to help them practice and “prep”. Those that are good at learning the rules of this part of the “game”, do better. Does better success at that necessarily mean the company gets a better employee or pilot ?

    Nope. In many cases, they just get the same person who simply was good at appearing to be someone else through practice.

    Heck, many don’t even do simulator evaluations anymore and assume technical trainability, skill and aptitude by training and employment records (paperwork). Actually, the flow does have a significant positive for AAG in that they get to know about a future AA pilot not by paperwork and short direct exposure through video and direct interviews, but more detailed interaction over years to include relationships with supervisors, coworkers and evaluators along with much more detailed performance data. They may not like everything they get with a flow, but they definitely know more about them vs. someone off the street.

    Some older articles point to how this guys crazy psycho ex wife framed him for some stuff while he was in the Army. He was eventually acquitted, but was court martialed for mishandling classified information. This article from heavy.com makes you wonder. Some things don't add up, when you take in to consideration the older articles.
