Default Atlas Training Pipeline Bottlenecks?

Hello APC, First post for me but wanted to possibly get some info on Atlas. I'm a retired C-5 Flight Engineer and current Regional FO. I had the screening last week and it went well and have the Tech/HR later this week. I am really interested in the 767 path, with the 74 very closely after. I was wondering about training delays. Recently read that delays after systems is possible. Are we still guaranteed the training guarantee if we get delayed and sent home?

Thanks in advance!

You’re on the payroll from day 1 no matter what they have you doing. Miami, home, or somewhere else doesn’t matter. You will get 64 hours min guarantee. The only money you wouldn’t get if they send you home is perdiem.

Thanks HPIC, That's what I figured but figured I would ask anyway.

Good luck on the interview, study the the packet and gouge that HR sends you. AviationInterviews.com is also a good source for study material, but be cautious on some of the answers, double check with references. Know what ACMI, TEM and CRM mean.

I am in the 767 pipeline now. We are on a 3 1/2 week break. Cut loose after systems, then back for a review week and the Oral. About 7 weeks for the sims is what my schedule shows. Looking at 4 months for initial training. But as was stated, we get min guarantee each month plus per diem while in MIami. Ticket home and back is also covered under the gateway program.

What’s the oral about? Anything to be concerned of?

Routine oral exam stuff. Systems, limitations, etc.
