Captain Andy Simonds

Senior Staff Writer

Captain AndySimonds

In 1980, Captain Andy Simonds first soloed in a beat-up fire-prone Cessna 152 Aerobat in Madison, Wisconsin.   After a tour in general aviation as a CFI and Part 135 charter pilot, Andy started collecting uniforms from American Eagle, TWA, Airborne Express and, finally, American Airlines where he is currently a Chief Pilot in NY and a captain on the A-320.  Whether left seat, right seat, back seat or jumpseat he never met an airplane he didn't like.  Andy would fly all airplanes to which somebody (who had the guts) gave him the keys including Metroliners, Jetstreams, DC-9, B-727, B-737, B-757, B-767 and the Airbus 319/321.

Client Testimonials

Joe W.

Hired at Atlas Air

After joining FAPA, I found that Karen was extremely responsive, answering questions via text, email and phone at all hours of the day and night. Sometimes she would be on a flight herself, but as soon as she landed she was back to me right away. In my case the FAPA job fair was the lead and vital to the invitation...Karen had great advice and testimonials which helped.
