Quick question, can you live anywhere in the world and work for Atlas? Ie in Europe and commute to work? If so, they pay for a C class ticket?

I have heard conflicting answers so thanks in advance for any clarification!

Thanks!

Yes, you CAN live anywhere you want.

No, you are responsible to get to the US. ******** There are some VERY limited exceptions that a super senior pilot in seat could make work.

Not to be negative but that's got to be because so many have departed for other carriers. With as many OT trips that are out there right now, they must be way short on pilots. Even the outbase offerings are being filled as they once were.

I take that as a good sign. Folks are beginning to realize that outbasing as opposed to volunteer flying on days off is the same thing as offering to work for free. One can volunteer four or five days off and garner more pay than can be had for outbasing an entire month. Plus, the more folks that realize this and don't outbase, the more new blood we will need here. It's a win for those here and a win for those who would like to wander the planet with us!

If I'm not mistaken it's also because classes are no longer divided into 747 and 767 classes as well. I believe that you now bid for equipment once you get on property and the classes are combined. Still, that's a ton of pilots to hire in a month at Atlas....

It makes me wonder if some of the attrition rumors for the next 6 months are true!

How is it living in Hawaii and working for Atlas? Is PHNL ever going to be a base? I understand the 767 is CVG but always see the 747 in Honolulu! Also if you have a type on the 747-400 does that influence which plane you will go into?

I imagine better than living in North Dakota... A buddy lives in Maui and is based in PAE. It's just a long ride to get to/from work, and if you're getting hit with imputed income, potentially expensive. But hey, you're living in hawaii!

Doubt PHNL would ever be a base, as it's a stop along a popular route, not an originator.

No, not necessarily. Class seniority decides which airplane, although internally they might wait until they had a class they knew would be all 747. Downside is you might get stuck in ANC as a new hire vs. CVG on the 767, but if you live in HNL, ANC would be an easier commute anyway. Latest vacancy bid had 50 new hire slots in ANC on the 747, only 12 in CVG on the 767.

Hawaii is now a gateway, and not just HNL, either.

LOTS of guys live overseas. Usually, the travel is not too bad. Here are some recent examples:

Co. buys ticket for guy from Kiev to Western Europe, where he starts a trip.
Guy in Philippines pays cheap ticket to HKG, company buys him ticket from HKG to ANC to start a trip (or he DH on atlas to ANC).
Guy in Dubai gets ticket paid for by co. from DXB to Asia to start a trip.
Some guys overseas still have US gateway, and their overseas tickets are usually cheaper than his US gateway tickets.
Another guy overseas says his Gateway is in HI, and the company usually pays for his travel.

Guys live in Europe, S. America, the Carribbean, Middle East, Asia, Australia, Canada. If you want to live overseas Atlas (or Kalitta) is much better than DAL/UAL/AA.
