Whew, had me going. I thought you were going to say new crj/erj feeder program.:eek:

I think that was on the "inside" Atlas thread that we can't see, but maybe not. Maybe I just overlooked it, either way, I like the way it sounds!!

Yes, it was in the Altas room.

It comes on the property Jan7 to go into the paint shop (atlas blue colors). N194UA. He also said the LCF is understaffed and we are upgrading and hiring to be ready for a fully ramped up LCF operation. He alluded to a couple more pax -400s in the works. Atlas is searching for planes to acquire (hence the lease of N194UA as a stop gap while acquiring our own). And his words, "light twin operation went from stove to back burner to freezer but now into the microwave. Lots and lots of new hires in 2011...making 2010 pale by comparison". Lots of positive comments and up-beat attitudes in the schoolhouse.


Thanks for the schoolhouse update. Couple of Q's if you dont mind.
1. Does Atlas operate -200's?
2. If so, do they have SO's or PFE's?

We currently operate...

Classics...6 aircraft total
5 B747-200s, 1 B747-300

400s...18 aircraft total
1 Passenger B747-400 (and 1 as a back-up aircraft) in/out of IAH
4 B747-400LCF (Large Cargo Freighter, for Boeing's 787 production logistics)
1 B747-400BCF (Boeing Converted Freighter)
12 B747-400F's (Original freighters from the factory)

And we employ PFE's, not SO's.

Sorry, trying to get all the lingo down. What is LCF? Thanks
