I canít say what hiring managers may or may not look for, but meeting the RATP mins with the Hornet background should be competitive. I think your time in a fighter with carrier qualifications would certainly out rank my several thousand King Air hours and Atlas was willing to take a chance with me.

I donít think it was an invalid statement. He stated that if itís his first 121 training that Atlas training might be tough. The Atlas training program when first designed was built for guys with extensive heavy international time. That has changed over the years to accommodate lesser relevant experience levels but itís still nowhere near where it should be. Iíve been through Atlas training(2 initials and many recurrent events) and training at a Legacy carrier. The Legacy training is FAR better and would be much easier for somebody starting their first 121 experience.

Hi all. Interested in the company and had a question. Can anyone share an example of a current 737 CVG junior FO schedule and monthly credit? I know the 73s fly very little, just want some insight. TIA!

I agree with this.

5.5 years, give or take a few months for the widebodies. Just under 3 for the 737.

Dude youíre not really thinking of coming to Atlas, are you? Did they leave ďfly on the wallĒ Mason32 behind when they turned off the lights at Centerport?

I suppose there is a seat lock, but after that time, can the 737 CA bid straight into CA on the widebody aircraft?

Initial seat lock is 24 months, but it does not preclude an FO to upgrade.
After that I believe the seat lock is 18 months.
