Actually the bottom 400 FO, a July 18 hire, is HSV based. The last 400 class is currently half ANC, a third LAX and a couple each HSV and CVG.

Atlas's home reserve (R1) is more meant to have crewmembers ready to airline out somewhere than cover a flight departing from their base airport. It's a way to have you on the schedule when Scheduling hasn't figured out what to do with you. It's unpaid and the time spent on R1 doesn't count towards your rig. The response time depends what time the company calls. If contacted between 7 and 12 local you have to be able to depart in 5 hours. If they call between 12:01 and 6:59 you have 10 hours to depart.

Atlas does not have a typical reserve system. To add to what TW said above, my experience as a reserve pilot on the 74's is that Atlas flies their reserve pilots virtually every day. I averaged less than one day a month at home NOT getting called to fly. They cover any open trips with off day volunteers.

YMMV

Yea I'll chime in here too. Reserve isn't like a lot of other airlines, you'll fly a lot or be away from home somehow. I ran into a guy a week ago that said he essentially became outbased in Leipzig on a CVG 747 R2 reserve line. He was really disappointed when he expected to be home in CVG on R2 reserve waiting on a 2 hr call out.

Reminds me of my friend at Spirit. Purposely bids reserve and gets reminders that he needs three takeoffs and landings to remain current!!!

LOL. As soon as you said "the contract expired", anything you say after that is irrelevant. Amendable, big difference. As far as living near a base, the R2 (short call) callout time is 90 mins to report - 3 hrs to departure.

And, you could be based in JFK, or ORD, for example, and sit hotel R2 reserve in CVG for 5 days in a row....or HKG for 12...

If i was based in HSV and they sent me to CVG to sit R2 and gave me a hotel would that be imputed?

Say ATL was my gateway and am based in ANC. I know they impute the price of the ticket up there to start a trip but do you sit R1 in ATL or ANC? if you had to sit reserve in ANC would they give you a hotel and would it be imputed?

sincere thanks to everyone for giving helpful answers and not just saying Allegiant is hiring.

if you had to sit reserve in ANC would they give you a hotel and would it be imputed? Your gateway travel (ticket to work) and your hotel prior to the start or your first reserve availability period are subject to imputed income. The hotel room provided for your reserve assignment is not subject to being imputed income.

sincere thanks to everyone for giving helpful answers and not just saying Allegiant is hiring.
Hopefully that helps.

Your hotel in base can be imputed sitting reserve as can your per diem. As far as the IRS is concerned you live in base. So from their point of view you don't need a hotel or per diem.

The company is requiring you to be on R2, hotel reserve, how exactly is the hotel viewed by anyone to be not required? I live in base and haven’t used a hotel for r2, so forgive the ignorance if I am misunderstanding.
