On a shorter term, there is no Airbus infrastructure in place at AAWH. Part supplies, maintenance training, simulator time, no LCA’s nothing.
Well, Atlas was solely a 747 operator for years and added fleets, LCAs, maintenance and simulators without too much trouble. Additionally, we have hired a **** ton of pilots recently with loads of Airbus time, won't be hard to find fleet managers and check airman. As they build that new training center there will be room for new simulators and classrooms dedicated to the next fleet. Atlas never has done much maintenance training as that is all farmed out. PS those new -8s will have a lot more years left in them then a mere 20.

Imagine a bunch of pilots drinking at Brysons when someone opens the door and says "hey, we need to move this offshore drill rig bit to Brasil, any 747 typed pilots around?"

There's still a DC-3 operator up in Opa Locka.

They will have been converted to drones and flown by basement bunker youngsters for side cash under the table as taxation will be 96.75%. The remaining hulls will have been converted to apartments on the lower East Side and the Pratts were dumped long ago saving some coral reef somewhere.

*I will be ash somewhere in 50 years and you will be racing a high speed ozone/avocado hybrid powered wheel chair as a side hustle in the Brazil underground.

Default Not hiring?

I guess Atlas is not hiring or is over staffed? apc says "yes" under hiring; however I filled out the application and before I could take a breath after hitting "submit", had an automated email saying "after careful review..." and to try again in a year.
I have flown ACMI and am rated in one of the aircraft they fly, so I guess that's not good enough.
"NO JOB FOR YOU!! Come back, ONE YEAR!!"

Dude they just announced they're losing all their 737s and most of their 767s. There's a whole thread on this forum about it. It's mentioned on this thread one page back. How do you apply to a place and not do that basic level of research on your potential employer? Been living under a rock or something?

Well…you should have taken it in 2019 but then you wanted to stay well clear of Atlas, so there’s that.
I’m assuming you have a 77 type from Omni or a 76 from National.
Yeah…both of those are not looking good.
