1. I've heard multiple people mention that they're moving the ATP ride in house for the 737. That should allow for applicants with 25 hours of multi to get in the door. Anyone know if this is actually going on yet? I'm sure the phone screen will clarify this.
2. How long to hold a line as a 737 FO?
3. Any idea how long it is to start training assuming successful interview?

Sorry if these are dumb questions.
1. 50 Hours ME is a hard minimum to apply and receive an Interview. I just asked the head of Talent Acquisition this question a few weeks ago. There is No credit given towards future hours. Not having these hours at the time of the phone screen should lead to a rapid end of the phone call.

2. You can not think Atlas schedules in terms of 121 Pax schedules, where junior FOs are reserve pilots and senior FOs are line holders. At Atlas, reserve lines often go senior as they usually pay the most (albeit not guaranteed).

This past bid, I am seeing April 2023 as the junior FO awarded a Primary Line in CVG. There were 5 more junior that got VTO Rebid (Scraps after Vacation and Training conflicts were removed from other FOs lines).

3. Interview to Indoc, 6 weeks ish... Honestly it is partially on the Applicant, partially on the awarded aircraft. In the interview you have the opportunity to state your availability and a desired fleet. Immediate availability obviously gets you hired sooner than say, at least ten weeks, because I need to be free for my brother's wedding.

Good Luck.

Where can I get information about the next Atlas job fair? I searched the Atlas and Tailwind sites with no luck. I'd love to meet the recruitment team! Thank you!

The assignment from interview to class date may likely happen in 6-10 weeks with the following variations;

It can happen sooner if you have availability and there are short term needs, e.g. class size variations or last minute drop outs

It may take longer as classes fill up or if hiring slows down a bit.

$97.60 x 64 per month through August. $100.53 x 64 per month beginning this September.

Do NOT plan on anything above minimum guarantee. Many reasons why such as training duration through OE completion, Secondary Lines, low BLG on primary lines, etc. Outbasing and Open Time go senior.

For the first year that's a valid point. Chances are it'll be better than this (for one thing your perdiem during ground school will be for 30 days.). You might also be able to get a reserve line which would be worth more than the 64 hours.

Secondary lines do tend to be 64 hours but they also tend to go much higher (around 80 hours) during the fourth quarter.

So if you plan as Clue32 says chances are you'll have some pleasant financial surprises in the first year.

Default Canpass

On the site, it says must be eligible for Canpass- Does this means Atlas flies to remote airport that requires that?

I do not believe so, no.

Iím assuming theyíre asking if youíre ineligible to travel to Canada due to a DUI conviction or whatever else they donít approve of.

If your app remains "under review" for several months, should it be assumed that they are not interested? Thanks.

You might consider posting this concern as a tremendously professional and overtly friendly question on the Pilots of Atlas Air Recruiting page on the Book of Face. The Talent Acquisition team will read it and might pull your application immediately. If anything, you are demonstrating a sincere desire to come here.

Just spit-balling here while I wait for my First Watch Breakfast in CVG. Something along the lines of, I applied X months ago and have yet to receive an initial phone screening.. Should I reapply under the 2024 hiring announcement... I am eager to begin a career with Atlas and excited for the opportunity to interview soon.

Best of Luck.
