[QUOTE=cfii2007;3647713]Regarding Atlas and other ACMI carriers....do they give preference to former 135 freight applicants or do they hire out of the 91/135 fractional/corporate ranks?[/QUOTE

New hires come from just about every path you can imagine. We are hiring so many folks that knowing who we are, what we do, and wanting to be here enough to properly prepare and study for the interview, that you will likely get an offer. But yea, first you have to get the call.

If you want to be not only competitive but also well prepared to succeed in training there are some better routes to take. Probably starting with one of the following, although someone will argue otherwise and I appreciatetheir take.

121 Route with Jet PIC
Ameriflight ME PIC, followed by 121 Jet experience.
Jet Fractional.

I would not go to 135 charter or straight corporate for two reasons. Likely lower annual flight hours, and that FSI / CAE training is not representative of the challenge you will face down in Miami.

At some point you probably need turbine PIC. Jet experience would help, but isn't mandatory. Previous 121 training experience would also help, but it isn't mandatory.

PM me if you want. I see that you have had quite a few questions over the past several months. I am sitting R2 Hotel reserve for another week and have all sorts of time.

I got hired at 1508TT with Ameriflight experience, but I also was told if I didn't ace the interview it was going to be tough.

AMF types seem to do well when I fly with them. This isn't to say some paths are better than others, or that I have a preference of backgrounds. Just saying these folks seem to make the prop to international jet transition without too much drama. Of course I'm seeing them after training, checking, etc.

Any info on phone screening? What are they looking for? How long is it?

I'm sure it's been asked before but I refuse to go through thousands of pages to find it

10-15 minutes, go through your resume, and "why Atlas".

Needless stress. You can have 20000 hours, and it will be tough if you don't ace an interview. Hopefully it wasn't one of our people that said this to you.

Default How far out are class dates?

Interview coming up, how far out are they offering class dates on the 767, 777, and 747? Is the training footprint on the 767 still extended?

In case anyone is curious, regional FO about halfway to 121.436 mins. Degree and clean training record. Nothing special.

As far as the training footprint goes, back to around 80 to 90 days.
747 3/27 NH on OE (Per my buddy)
777 4/10 NH on OE (Per random shared schedule)
737 4/11 NH on OE (Per random shared schedule)

767 Should be back on track by the time you hire on. Per may schedule checks... 10/25 NH look like they are past the Type and doing final sims, OE in August then. NOV and DEC 22 NHs beginning Fixed Base Sims. Not a lot of 2023 76 hires to look at, like 5 total.

For class dates, probably the FB "Pilots of Atlas Air Recruiting" group will give you a better answer.
