Dont get your panties in a wad. IMO, the guys that have trouble in training fit into one of two categories.

1. They already know everything and what could they possibly be taught.

2. They treat it as a rote memory course. You can not possible know every word of every page. Don't try.

My advice is:

DO be able to draw every system. This way you do not have to memorize every configuration or malfunction in the system, just visualize the system and answer the question. KISS.

400 guys - memorize FMA's and the order they come in. Do NOT memorize every key stroke in the box. Train your brain to think like the guy who designed it.

That's my .02, with that and a "fin" you can get a cup at Starbucks, across the parking lot in the Marriott.

I would say good luck, but that has nothing to so with it. Later.

One more thing, Happy Hour, Catch of the Day., across the street. Don't be a slam clicker, enjoy paradise. :-) Your about to experience 50 or so days of training crammed into 75 days.

I've been emailing in my resume every other quarter or so for the past 3 years. Never heard anything. Last summer an Atlas guy rode our jumpseat out to wisconsin on his way to Oshkosh. We got talking and he offered to send my resume in. How much influence that had I don't know. I'm sure it helped. But even so, that was what, 4-5 months ago?

So what are the chances of a regional F/O getting on at Atlas? I've got like 3000TT and probably 2500 turbine multi but no turbine PIC. No Turbine PIC requirement is listed on the careers page on their website.

Whats training like in respect to pay and lodging?

d give it a shot. Atlas does ask that you include Total turbine PIC time (turbo-prop and jet) on your resume.

Just a quick question on the gateway basing, to be sure I understand this correctly. In most cases, the company will fly you out of your gateway to your domicile the day before you trip starts, and back to your gateway on the day after it ends. However, if day 1 of your trip is a deadhead to the aircraft, they may deadhead you instead out of your gateway on day 1 if the rest requirements work out good. In other words, there may be cases where you do not lose a day off at each end to commute. Is my understanding of this correct? If so is this generally a rare thing or can it happen on a reasonable basis? Thanks for the help.

I normally don't loose an off day due to the commute...There is not very much flying in/out of JFK (where I'm based) and so I normally DH to my first operating leg normally from ORD, MIA, TOL, PHL for Dover or McGuire flights, etc.

Then there is a rest period before you operate an aircraft...so, it works very well.

Disclaimer...I am fairly senior in my base/equipment so I can bid out of those trips that start in JFK.

As for the other bases (MIA, HSV, IAH, LAX, ANC) I'll let the others address their experiences.

Good luck.

There is no more resident standby unless it suits them. I can't wait to sit in ANC for a week....
