I figured it was a test to see if you could reasonably compose an ACARS message from the far side of the world that even Dispatch could understand.

Same here. I'll definitely be there if it helps my chances and is worth it. (I know it can't hurt.) I just don't want to waste $100 and a full day waiting in line if the end result is a just a quick "Hi". Atlas is the only company that I'm interested in that will be attending the fair so I just want to make sure it's a good investment.

Indeed! We routinely carry the classy autos as well as ammunition, race horses, sheep, goats, airbus flaps, asparagus, flowers and that rush order Samsung tablet you ordered. You'll be amazed at some of the stuff you see when you first start making your cargo deck inspections.

Just a few of the topics Ive heard are: NOTAMs, PRM, ADS. Enquiring minds want to know.

The job fair is currently $99 to attend. The admission price includes all of the seminars and the job fair. The price will increase to $129 starting August 29th. I encourage all to book your ticket now at the lower price. Aero Crew Solutions offer a 100% refund if you are unable to attend. I am a pilot too and know that non-reving or jumpseating doesn't always work out right.

Atlas Air will be making a company presentation starting at noon. They will be allotted 45 minutes to speak and answer any questions you have about the company. There will be two HR representatives that will make recommendations to the HR Manager (DB) on who would be a good interview candidate.

Remember that the attire for the job fair is business formal (suit and tie). The most important thing to have for the job fair is a great attitude. It makes all the difference with the recruiters. Do your homework on the company and come prepared.

As of today we only have 26 people who are interested in talking to Atlas. The lines should not be too long. You will have 5 hours to talk to the recruiters. If anybody has any questions please PM. Good luck.

Hotel Update

The Sheraton has extending the cutoff date for booking a hotel room under the group rate. It has been extended until August 31st. You can book a room directly through our website.
