During OE you are on reserve. Once you finish OE you will bid for a line.

Default Interested in Atlas

Good day everyone! I am just posting here to solicit some advice, I am interested in Atlas and looking for the best way forward. I am looking to transition from the military in less than 2 years, and have approx 1650 Total, unrestricted ATP, and approx 1400 Turbine Multi. Unfortunately, I have been flying RPA's for over 10 years, so I have no recency. I plan to get "current" with a BFR and IPC at the local FBO and do some regular flying. Any words of advice from the field?

Do what ever you can to get some recency. You have been out of the cockpit for ten years. Perhaps use the GI bill to get an ATP if possible. You need to build some recency in something as complex as possible, e.g, turbine or multi at least. Consider a stint in King Airs or Part 135, There is a lot of hiring going in, but to be competitive you are going to need to get involved. Additionally, nobody knows what the hiring environment will be in two years, too many variables in play.

In the current hiring environment, your resume isn’t bad, just not recent.

I say get involved in a local flying club or someplace where you can build a little time that isn’t a decade old. A part time professional gig flying once or twice a month wouldn’t be a bad idea, if anything like that is available to you. A resume showing 1750 hours with 100 hours over the past couple years would be a decent improvement for not that much cost.

Good luck

How is the quality of training at atlas? Wanted to get people’s input that have been through, including 76/777 as well as any 747 guys/gals. Was it better quality training compared to a regional? About the same? Thanks in advance.

I think the quality of the training, at least on the 767 is quite good. Full disclosure - I don't have any regional time, and this is my first 121 carrier. My last job was a VLJ in a small 135 so my experience level coming here is pretty nill. With that said - yeah I think it's good training. We spend a lot of time on systems and a lot of time doing oral prep. They definitely expect you to be on your A-Game for sure.

I have heard that regional training is a bit more geared towards guys with no turbine time, etc - but that's only what I've been told.

I would agree that the 767 training is good, too, but it (and the 737, my other Atlas experience) were both “big boy training”. The RJ operator was, too, in 2007, despite the fact they were hiring low time CFIs - there was still a bit of supply so they could throw things at the wall and see what stuck. But they were very user friendly by 2019/2020 and geared towards CFIs with no jet experience. YMMV.

The training for the 777 is basically non existent, no ground school component just a lot of CBTs and sessions on the flat panel before the sim. It's really a teach yourself course, lots wash out.
Compared to somewhere like a regional which spoon feeds you, the 777 training is tough.

The washout rate is far from accurate for most pilots. For this who expect/need to be spoon fed they really should go to a regional. Atlas expects experienced pilots that can fly at ATP standards without handholding.
