Default ATLAS J/S time issue

I am thinking about signing up for a jump with only two hours between me landing ORD passenger terminal and the Atlas departure time. Is this too tight? Any repercussions if I miss? I estimate getting there could be :30-45 minutes from blockin.
Thanks

Do you know where the jet is parked?

The problem is that we now park on both the new North side as well as the traditional south cargo side.

Thanks for the reply. Iíve been told a JS coordinator will send information in an email after I sign up. Iím looking to go through CVG if that clears up the parking location in ORD.

Looks like the it will be south.
My main question is do you think Iíll miss the crew if I get there 1:15 prior? Thanks again.

No, that is enough time, but you have to get to the jet.

The easiest way is to go to the hotel and ride with the crew. We always welcome JSs, but due to the vast range of places we operate out of, it is hard give a simple answer.

The min time for the crew to show up at the aircraft is one hour prior to the flight. Sometimes they are late, and show up later than that. Normally, the crew shows about 1-1.5 hours before the sched block out...
