Meet the FAPA team

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

Bryan Q.

Hired at United Airlines

Claudette, I wanted to thank you for the interview prep a couple of weeks ago. I'm happy to report I was offered a job with United Airlines. What's incredibly amazing is the first 6 or 7 questions you asked me turned out to be the identical questions I was asked. Thanks again from one happy pilot, Bryan Q.
