No, we have a number of guys and gals here who donít have degrees (myself included). If your desire it to work on a degree on the side, then reserve lines on the 767 are an excellent way to do so.

Sponsoring non-Aussies takes closer to a year and is subject to annual quotas that often get filled up in Q1 of a year, so it doesn't really work well for pilot hiring.

I suspect the majority here donít have degrees, nothing factual but we talk a lot regarding backgrounds having plenty of time in the air. Not something required here by any means obviously and mine were for previous employment and does nothing for me here. We have an amazing group from all walks of life, definitely a hodge podge of characters who have some fantastic information/ideas/hole in the wall aspects of life I doubt you will find as much of anywhere else. We just be pilots roaming the world always having to show a passport but never a degree. If your sights are beyond us like FedEx or any slim to none carriers that require one than perhaps go get it. Otherwise higher requirements of most any sort have been dropping like flies over the years. Even Delta dumped their requirement this year. Makes you think doesnít it, hmmmm.

*Plenty of time in the back of a 74 to comfortably finish a degree if you desire. 777/767 as well is just a guess on my part or during some great layovers. RyeMex mentioned Reserve lines which is a fantastic idea.

Anecdotally Iíd say that itís about 50/50 having a degree or not.
What is very interesting about Atlas is that we have from all walks of (pilot) life with all sorts of interesting stories.
We have everything from Riddle Rats to former Mig pilots to US Navy Submarine guys.
Iíve flown with people that have been missionary pilots in Papua NG and recently with a former US Navy rescue diver.
Makes for interesting conversations on the oceanic crossings.

Was he a real rescue diver, and not the guy we have running around telling everyone he was a Seal, EOD, and a bunch of other stuff, when he was just a Boatswain's mate?

That sounds really great. Seems like a great group of pilots there, and freight is where I ultimately want to be at. I honestly donít know if I can tolerate flight attendants and angry passengers for the rest of my flying career. Iíd like to try my hand at UPS or FedEx eventually as a career destination, but if I donít get selected, itís not the end of the world for me, and Iíd be happy staying at a place like Atlas. Plus, Iíve always wanted to fly a 747. Hopefully they wonít retire those anytime soon and theyíll be around for many years to come. Itís one of those planes on my list to fly before I retire.
