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....
It's 2100 miles from Luanda to Freetown and the people we bring back are already on 21 day isolation. It's going to have to get much worse to stop the flow of oil.

I agree with what Twin said..... at K4 we are flying daily into Monrovia and and occasionally Freetown and the relief cargo is in full move asap mode. I doubt SonAir will shut down those flights commercial options are much worse for what you guys do for them.

I agree that it would have to get worse, but I'm anticipating that it does. The WHO is expecting something like 10000 new cases a month for the next few months. Hopefully they're wrong and the next time I'm forced to go to Africa the only thing I'm having to worry about is Bokoharam...

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,

That sounds competitive to me. Also, keep in mind that Atlas isn't going to be able to be as picky going forward with everyone hiring. You sound competitive anywhere. I will say this though... Of all the mil positions having C-17 on your resume is probably the strongest military airframe to have.

That'd take 3.5 to 4 months to train the 20 767 new hire positions that we currently have and that doesn't count attrition or retirements. I can see them slowing hiring through the holidays for sure but I'd be shocked if it doesn't pick back up again in January.

Got my "thumbs up" email from HR yesterday. Waiting for a class now. Hope it's sooner than later. Looking forward to it. Thanks for the positive support on this board.
