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.

Job Fair Attendee

Hello.... By the way, the job fair was very well-executed today. Nice job. I bet your premier memberships go way up after this. I didn’t wait in line AT ALL. I was #273 Premier. Went in when the board said 250 American, 300 All others. The woman from American approached me and asked if wanted to speak to an American representative. When I said yes, she brought me to the table where they took my resume for a minute, handed it back and brought me to the waiting Captain. It couldn’t have gone smoother. I’m a new fan of the premier-exclusive line now.
