Spot-on. One addition, lots of Reserve Lines in CVG. Company covers hotel. You sit reserve until scheduling calls or just schedules you to cover something. Sometimes you get some DHL off of reserve, sometimes you wind up flying pax....you never really can guess.

Hope it stays as-is. I like JFK-based flying.

Got the call from Denise. 1.5 years after I interviewed.

So I could see this Ebola scare impacting the passenger airlines. Any thoughts on how it could affect the ACMI carriers?

When I submitted my initial PAQ I received an automated response. I updated the other day and received nothing; is this normal? Is there a way to verify they received it?

We are hearing about a class every three weeks thru the summer. These are all planned for the 767. Bad news is, they will be small classes of only 4. Not sure if that can increase as we lose more pilots to majors.

Since we regularly fly into Nigeria and Angola in West Africa it affects our cargo operations more. Our pax services have a ton of military flights so those will go anyway since it's military. Son Air flights go regularly directly into Angola and that may all get shut down which would virtually shut down our IAH base. That'd result in 40 people getting furloughed if that's what the company chose to do but allegedly they've got contracts sitting on the sidelines because they don't have enough pilots....

Hi all. Does anybody know what has been competitive for the new hires since the fall hiring began? I am a 1200 hour fighter guy (IP), about to break 2k total with no conversion, and I know 0 people at Atlas. Is the attrition at Atlas significant enough yet to warrant such low time candidates?

I have been sending resumes to Atlas via airlineapps.com every month and I have submitted the PAQ/application on the Atlas webpage twice over a 6 month span. Wondering if anyone can advise how much is too much...I want to be a squeaky wheel without being a pest.

Thanks,
BrownBear
