I am a Robinson CFI/CFII and I have an interview next week with ERA for an EMS co-pilot job in Cleveland in a S76. The interview will take place in Lake Charles in Louisiana, first there is a written test, then a sim test and then the interview. I am wondering if you have any tip fro the sim test(what kind of sim will they use, will I do a NDB approach, ...?) What about the interview, any weird question they ask? Thanks for your help.

Hmm seems things have changed since I worked for them but I was a Captain and not in EMS. I was suppose to go for a flight and the oral but never had a test. I never did the flight ether cause there was no A/C to use at the time. Interview was basic questions pertaining to the type of flight I was going to be doing. Other questions were directed towards judging my character and how well my risk management and how safety oriented I was.

Like I said first it seems things have changed a bit as I imagined they would have over the course of 5 years, so most of this is just a guess based on old info but I guess just brush up on whatever you thing you might be week on that would be needed for this type of flying. Then let the rest come from the heart and that is all you can do. Better over preparing than under preparing.

Good luck and for what its worth It was a good company when I worked for them and enjoyed my time there.

Focus on helicopter aerodynamics and physics, basic part 91 stuff like airspace, how to read an approach plate, etc. They will not expect you to be an expert at part 135 regs.

You should be prepared to shoot an approach in a simulator. Again, don't worry about aircraft-specifics. They want to see if you're an overall competent IFR copilot.

If you have an interview set up, the only person who can eliminate you at this point is you. They mainly just want to make sure you're not a dumbass or weirdo.
