ACMI carrier updates?

They are concerned about turnover. Lots of people leave with the type in the first few months.
Why? Turnovers are delicious. Kidding aside, I’ve got a bunch of former KS friends who went over there and I hope it works out for Atlas. I always enjoyed watching the Whales land in ANC.

Why do people leave? To go to a 'real' airline. It's a stop for people returning from expat flying or the military, to show recent US civilian training to prospective employers. It's also a calculated gamble for longer term Regional Captains that aren't getting interviews with the legacies, which seems to work for many.

Crop Duster

E pluribus unum
A lot of these places have had to change their plans so rapidly that they don't even know the answer to that question. The last few months have officially moved the needle from "warning signs, but cautious optimism" to "global economic s**tshow." ACMI is historically a hard-hit sector in the early stages of a recession, and we should expect to see that going into 2020. I know K4 and Atlas/Southern are parking airplanes. I honestly believe that the reason you don't hear about ACMIs furloughing already is due to massive attrition to passenger carriers.

APC's airline statistics are peer-updated, and usually lag behind the actual state of affairs. The "hiring now" status is not still there out of spite. If you have other opportunities available to you, they will most likely be quicker to respond. Best case in the short term, ACMIs will hire at a trickle to cover attrition. Worst case, one or several ACMI carriers will fail, and over a thousand more pilots will be competing with you for all the other jobs you need to be looking at right now.
It's odd more folks don't recognize this.

But, hey! Most everyone likes an optimist.

I see my turnover joke went over your head.

Did you have any internal rec? I've applied multiple times to ATI but always get the "thanks for your interest but we've decided to pursue candidates with qualifications closer to what we're looking for" or whatever they say ... I have 7500 total hours.. 1500 part 121 PIC... only box I can't check is a 757/67 type rating... but I know no-one there to walk my résumé in .. do job fairs help if they're actually attending one ?
Did you tell them you were willing to cross a picket like?
