Default Atlas Air Cargo New Hires

What is Atlas Air looking for?

If you don't mind sharing, can you list your experience?

Total Time?
PIC Time?
Education?
Former experience (Regional, ACMI, MIL, Foreign Wide Body, etc...)
Age?

I know there is already a thread out there, but I would like to start off fresh.

I just turn 30 yrs old and I'm from the Houston area this would be an ideal place to work. I recently upgraded 6 months ago and I'm logging valuable TPIC time and would like to get my resume out to Atlas and attend a few of their job fairs in the future.

Any advise from those in the know would be greatly appreciated

Thanks in advance.

810 pages of mostly outdated info dating back to 2010 taking about various things not related to what I'm asking. I'll respectfully pass as I've already read through a lot of it. I need to know what I need to work towards to be competitive.

Go to Delta.. Atlas isn't hiring, or are they? My advice for a smart, young CA like yourself, is maybe start with the LAST page of the Atlas thread and start backwards till you find what you're looking for. Don't want to come off too harsh, but I'm nipping your questions in the bud, before the wolves get to you.. Good Luck

Well, we hire anybody from 135 corporate guys to AF1 and U2 pilots. If you are over the minimums that's all that matters. Last few classes were heavy on the military and widebody ACMI pilots. In the past there have been all RJ classes. Like any airline HR is in charge, so asking a magic 8 ball would be as accurate as guessing what future classes will look like.

Currently two classes going through right now. Mix of military heavies, previous cargo, corporate fractional, and regional.

Seems like hour counts vary, but I don't know of anyone yet who only has the mins. Most are multiple thousands of hours TT. High PIC hour counts in there.

Advice would be to apply, keep applying, keep going to the job fairs, keep gaining hours, and don't stop. So many factors go into a person getting hired. The stars need to align properly with the needs of the company, who you are competing with, how well the company is doing, and so on. Not being hired in the first round you applied to doesn't mean the next time will be the same answer, or the next time. Be persistent and keep flying! BTW, Houston is a VERY senior base for Atlas. You won't be able to hold it as a new guy.

I would respectfully disagree with you that it is outdated...just ask the recent poolies, and new-hires. It is certainly a daunting task to go through that many pages, but if you pick up a few morsels that are not to be found elsewhere, it may be well worth the effort...Good luck.

You obviously haven't read the most recent pages. This thread is insulting to those actually interested in Atlas. Read the long thread. It really does have every bit of info you could ever need.

Who is Atlas Air Cargo?

Be sure not to put that on the "objectives" line of your resume.
