Meet the FAPA team
Captain Andy Simonds
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.
I can't Thank You enough for helping me achieve my dream of flying for United! I have been passing your name and FAPA around to everyone I know.. I have been telling them don't wait, get ahold of you and do the prep! I hope they take my advice. Only problem is I don't want to over work you with all the preps coming your way..
