RJ guys do fine here. If you get the call and keep your nose to the grindstone, you'll have no more problems than pilots with from other background.

That said, there are better options for you than Atlas! Keep looking!!
How's it feel to be a contractor for DHL since you used to be at the wholly owned DHL?

How flexible is atlas about class dates IF I should be lucky to get the interview then lucky enough to get hired?
Is it a pool system where I can pass a class date and still be eligible to accept another? Or is HR of the "take it or leave it" attitude?
If you know that you want to come back to the states, put in your 90 day notice now and goto a regional why you wait for a class. Otherwise, you can wait until you're hired and tell them your situation. They were good about working with me on coordinating my class date and I was unofficially told I had a spot in a class about a month out. The regular business rules are that they fill up a class before they start offering the next class dates. If you go back to the middle east after your interview, I'd recommend completing the drug test prior to leaving the states, you can not complete it overseas. However, I'm not sure if the drug test is valid for 90 days or not. There is about a 7 day turn around on the drug test and you must have it completed and the results back to the company prior to starting training.

Good luck...

I'm already typed in the E170/E190. The FMS is, from what I'm told, much closer to what I'll see in a Boeing or Airbus than what the CRJ has. I'm also not going to spend more than I currently make in a year to prove that I'm trainable. My training record speaks for itself. I may not have the hours yet, and I'll keep at it in that regard, but I seriously doubt buying a type to go to Atlas is a good move.

I can't speak for other classes, but I'm guessing the numbers aren't far off, so I'd say those are "competitive mins".
That's good to know! Thanks for the info! Maybe by the time I'm competitive all the mgmt bs will have subsided!

Why such a hard on for Atlas? Do you really want to fly a 747 that bad?

What I want is none of your business or concern. I'm here to get advice from professionals that have more experience than I do in a field I'm interested in. Im here to learn, not to validate myself or stroke egos. I'd also like to keep this thread on topic...which is Atlas Hiring not "what I want to fly."

The FACT that almost ALL the Atlas pilots on this forum tell you and everyone else wanting to work here, to look elsewhere, yet you continue to say that you want to work here when all the evidence tells you to find somewhere better to go tells me that you have a serious case of 747 SJS.

Or 767. Maybe I just have a Boeing boner. Maybe I'm into vocational bdsm and love being a slave. Maybe I think most Airline pilots are way underworked and overpayed, and I'm trying to do something about that. Or maybe I have my own reasons. Again, not your concern.

You'll love the layover in BKK.
