Thanks,

I have seen a guitar or two (one of those small collapsible ones as I recall) and perhaps a harmonica. Other than that not much. I think Atlas pilots' crew rest talents lie in other areas. Most involve beer and / or food. ;-)

I am fully capable of holding my own with food and beer (beer IS food, correct?). I dabble with the banjo also. Would love to pick a little when far from home.

I just updated my resume with crewjobs. No jet nor FMS time. Over 3000 hrs PIC in the ATR 72 and 42, much of it in southern India. 7000+ total time with a desire for the Atlas schedule and destinations. I have at least one internal. I've read virtually every page on this thread, but I'm sure I'm forgotten stuff :-( I do hope I get a shot at the test.

Guess we shall see.....

Do it. I'm a drummer, so it's easy for me to carry sticks on the road, but there are people who bring guitars along. 17 days on the road is a long enough time... Don't ignore your outside interests!

Well, the spirit of your idea is not crazy, but that stuff is too big and bulky to carry around the world.

Latex bands and similar type things work well though. You can get up and stretch, climb the stairs a few times, pushups, etc while on the plane.

Some of the hotels have good gyms and others suck. Body weight exercises are your friend.

YouTube channel called Fitness Blender is most excellent. Work out anywhere even in a Japanese hotel room...

You can find decent gyms over much of the globe, Europe, Asia, ME, can't vouch for Africa.

The hotel we use in Nairobi has an excellent gym.

5,4,3,2,.....ok, ok, ok.......I'll bite on this one. Some good posts here. But just like has been said over the last few pages, there is a huge amount of information that typically answers all questions if you at least go back a year, if not to the beginning of this thread.

But, here you go. Some first year insight.

But in reality, I don't there is such a thing as normal at Atlas. Must be flexible from my understanding.
