UPS is not the job you apparently think it is. Maybe you’re thinking of UPS feeder jobs? But that’s not working for UPS.Welcome back to flying. I just saw an UPS add for pilots over in the jobs available thread, with a degree as preferred. My guess is that being UPS, a degree is probably 'required' but I'll let theUPS guys speak to that. There are a few of them running loose on this website.

The only thing I really envy from the Brown side is the Queens. Wish we had those, but I hear they wish they had the 777s.UPS isn't even the job a lot of guys think it is.
FedEx is THE cargo job in the industry. UPS is a trucking company with airplanes, and the way they treat their pilots shows.
I have a friend with a similar track - also a former Copa guy. Went to a regional, then jumped over to another regional at a very right time, upgraded and should flow to AA well inside of the 5 year mark at the second regional.Hi all,
After a failed 2-year business venture, I have decided to return to flying. I currently have about 2,500 TT, of which around 1,500 is SIC B737/8 time (expat Copa Airlines flying).
I've been browsing around the different job listings, and though I seem to meet the published minimums at some of the major carriers, I must ask - What do you think my odds really are after being absent from flying for two years and no college degree?
A little background: I worked as a CFI and imagery pilot but left for Copa before being picked up by a regional. As I left for Copa with only a CMEL, I never obtained my FAA ATP. I did, however, complete my ATP written and required CTP course after returning to the US. No ding/dents on record or checkride/written failures (YET!) knocks on wood
I'm in my mid-thirties, single and quite flexible in terms of where I can live and equipment I fly. I would prefer a carrier that would allow me quite a bit of time at home -- even if this means sitting on reserve.
Long story short, I am looking for suggestions as to which path(s) would be best and realistically attainable in my current state. Also, has anyone been through a similar transition? If so, what materials would you recommend for bringing myself back up to speed aside from the FAR/AIM?
Many thanks in advance!
It’s at the same level as United, Delta, etc. It’s not a place you get hired on at as a low time person looking to get current. The 2nd year pay is close to $200,000/year, with excellent benefits. They hire retired experienced military or highly experienced civilian pilots.I saw it in j'jobs available'. I probably missed something.
You only need to get through the first page of Google results with UPS and the EEOC to get a handle of how things are run over there.
