Default 767

Probably has been asked a million times, but can anyone give a little bit of insight on flying the 767 out of CVG / JFK?

CVG is mostly Amazon, domestic flying with a bit of international. JFK is mostly passenger international with a bit of Amazon domestic. Things may change a little with bases opening up.

CVG = Mostly domestic Amazon. A couple domestic DHL routes. International will be DHL to Europe, has been LEJ or EMA this year. Some Inter-Asia laps out of ICN.

JFK = Mostly charter pax. Both domestic and International. Some domestic lines flying Amazon or DHL.

Big difference is the first and last day of the pattern. CVG is likely always an operating leg, where JFK is likely always a commercial DH from JFK... meaning alternate travel on day 1 from home to the jet vice gateway travel on day 0 to base.

Spend week or two on FlightRadar24 creeping on GTI and PAC flights and also look at what the jet has done the past week, and you will get the jist.

In the current scenario, if you had two training dates,

one for atlas 737 pathway program (going to PHX, getting paid 2000/month during this training to get an ATP in a seminole, then on to actually getting hired by atlas- 64hrs guarantee at 90$/hr and get the 737 type rating, 500hrs in 2 years)

one for an American wholly owned carrier, getting hired straight away + bonuses and pay, 700hrs+ in 2 years (75 hrs guarantee at 90$/hr)

what would you pick and why?

What's your end goal? If you want to end up at Atlas for the rest of your career, take the 737 class and get on the seniority list. If you just want to build time to get to a legacy, I think you'll be far more successful going to a regional.

Options and a flow date at AA are pretty appealing. That said it would be nice to have you here.

Default When can I reapply?

What is the time frame to reapply after getting the "thanks but no thanks" email? Im sitting just a few hrs shy of my military RAPT mins ( which I will have before the new year). I applied for the 737 Pilot Pathway program.

Thanks in advanced...

It sounds like we will be re-starting the HSV base soon. One of the new 747-8s is going to the company that bought Panalpina. The Panalpina contract is why we had the HSV base. This is what I heard from the workers in HSV.

Atlas is better than Kalitta, but not by a lot. Kalitta has Home Basing, which is something that Atlas needs to retain more pilots. Atlas has better work rules, overall.

Atlas has some quasi home basing with how the patterns on the 73, as well as 76 JFK/IAH and 74 IAH bases are set up. It's no guarantee as it's not a contractually required thing, but 76 JFK has been deadheads on both ends for pretty much the entire time. Now with Houston, they are just making bases everywhere without even any flying out of there, so that's just another deadhead base.
