Plan on two months in MIA, be happy if it's shorter. A friend in the 747 transition class just went home today, class began Jan. 12th.

Sounds like Atlas pays for a limo from home if any PAE guys operate out of SEA since they'd get one from PAE. No clue how that works for 767 guys. I suppose if you don't use a gateway ticket and your trip starts there then they would probably do it for you either way.

I live in the south sound and employee parking is a huge blessing. I would probably drive to PAE if I had a trip out of there, if there is parking available.

According to the contract (26.M) the company does provide parking at your permanent base (or were you just referring to parking at SEA?)

Don't know about the 767 but on the 747 program it seems to always be at least 9 weeks in MIA for a newhire including indoc - the 747 type and -8 differences.

I would skip my "permanent base" to have it at my gateway airport, is that done?

Sorry no. The contract says parking at Gateway airport is the crew members responsibility

Yeah, this was for the first 767 FOs transitioning to the 747, so I assume they could leave all the HR stuff out. Took them more than a week after the type ride to finish up.

767 initial was 7 weeks for me 3.5 years ago, and that was tight. The first time we had more than 1 day off was just prior to the Oral. There was a 747 class at the time that started before us and finished weeks after. (They had 10 days off for Thanksgiving, we had one)

Thing is - it doesn't really matter how long it took another class, just how long it takes yours. Holidays can complicate things, sims can break, but the basic footprint is right at 8 weeks or so.

As with all things Atlas, YMMV.

I still don't see them in the attendees list, so it's beat to keep checking in hopes it changes...

So far it looks like only the regionals, UpS, Southwest, XO jet, Frontier, and Virgin America have confirmed
