You would think that as sophisticated as we've gotten with this process, there would be a way for the sender to get confirmation? Anyone given HR feedback on this?

I've received emails from other applications at least acknowledging the fact that they received my application.
From Atlas, nothing.
I have no idea if my materiel ever made it. I know when I first applied, I filled out the PAQ on my Mac, it appeared to work, so I sent it in with my resume.
After reading through the Atlas thread, I filed out my PAQ on my work computer (windows), then emailed it home and bundled it off with my resume, on my Mac.
I updated my resume and PAQ with new hours, ATP and type rating, sent all from my work computer, but with all the email security, encryption and other crap you have to go through. I have no idea if Atlas received it at all.
Just hoping my information went through.

There's never a confirmation of any kind with Atlas. I've even emailed them asking for one, or for ANY kind of acknowledgement someone somewhere has received it, and no reply to that either....

It's a complete crap shoot for all I know.

Like many of you I was also anxious to know if my application package was received, especially after one of my contacts informed me that my PAQ was not received. I initially sent my stuff in the day the window opened.

After seeing the problems associated with MAC-platform submissions, I resent my package using the Windows-platform. I still was not sure if my stuff was in, so I contacted their HR directly and confirmed my information was on file.

The HR professional acknowledged they know the issues of their current system ( without me asking or anything) and believes they should have a system that acknowledges a candidate's submission.

With that said, I left the conversation very satisfied. Perhaps in the future the HR folks will get a system will reduce some of their workload. Selfishly, this process has given me a Ph.D in Patience. As you super-high performers get the call, this gives me some extea time to test some grill recipes, lose about 15 pounds so the Freshman15 will not cause me issues.

So in a long-winded manner, the best advice is have patience and update your info every 3-6 months(what HR told me). We have a lot of good people on this board. I've been very lucky to meet a few of you talented folks.

I hope 2013 brings us all good news. Fair winds.

Do they type the 767 initial qual guy? Is it a dual 75/767 type?

Yes, everyone at Atlas is typed on both aircraft. The 767 is a combined 757/767 type rating. The 744 is a type rating with a differences course for the 747-8 (and btw, it is called the 747-8, not the 747-800 or the 800).

I'm not sure how many were originally in the pool. I've heard 20-30. Since that time there has been one class of 10 in December, and the upcoming class of 6 on 1/7. So basically probably anywhere from 4-14 are in the pool I think. Purely conjecture though...

While any iteration of 0's after the 8 are unacceptable, the following terms are acceptable:

"Dash 8"
"The Ocho"
"The Douche"

And the unfun 748

Cheers and beers...

And the term "dash 8" in Atlas lingo is the 747dash8...not the two-engine turboprop kind of dash 8!!

This one is ours...!! N852GT Atlas Air Boeing 747-87UF - Planespotters.net Just Aviation

Not this one...!! de havilland dash 8 - Google Search
