First Officer Quentin Myers attributes the dedication and rigorous preparation given by members of APDP to his being fully prepared to excel in an interview with Delta Air Lines and ultimately land the job.

“I am so thankful for the opportunity to have worked with First Officer Jamie Jameson and Captain Joel Gudger, and I can honestly say that if it weren’t for the time and effort they devoted to my success, that my interview would not have been as successful as it was.”
