Default April 1st/2nd Class

It looks like the March Class is up and running.
Is anyone here in the April class?

My CJO from 5 weeks ago simply said "March or April class" but I have not heard a thing since.

Has anyone received a final offer for the April class or does anyone have any information regarding the April class?

Default Would it be worth it?

Just out of curiousity, would getting a 747 type increase your chances of getting called?

If someone with a degree and 1000TPIC thatís not getting the call from brown, would it be beneficial to get a 747 type? Would this help any?

Not my case yet, but definitely curious. Its personal for me, but I wouldnít mind paying for a 747 type. If brown never calls, itís still a cool thing to have.

I can't imagine it would help if you didn't have any actual time in it.

Atlas seems to be a stepping stone for UPS. Not that they intend to be. Itís not a reflection on their pilots, just a lot of guys/gals leaving Atlas for UPS, over the past 4 years. So if anything, they seem to get good people that leave, and many of them go to UPS.

Donít go buy a 747 type, it would be useless without experience.

I would agree... I don't have anything near a 747 type (or a 757/767/A-300/MD-11) and I have a class date.

I would consider going to Atlas/Omni/ATI/Kalitta/National/Whoever if you want to get into something bigger and have a better chance with UPS if it fits your lifestyle. It can't hurt.

From my experience, and from other I know at UPS, they like pilots from all varied backgrounds and no one really knows the secret sauce to the science.
