I too would be interested in knowing what´s going on at Air Atlanta?

What kind of roster patterns do they currently offer? Is there any hiring going on?

Sorry things have changed there ,I worked there L-1011 and 747 from 1998-2004.
But we had good ones in command.
People like Olie Smith and such made the wheels roll everyone was happy.
But they were a small company back then.
Any problems were handled like freinds not like a business and the company made money.
We flew had a good time,,was paid on time every time.
Jobs like that are hard to find now.

I flew with them on FAA and with Icelandic validation.
Not sure what they require now.

I flew for this company some 5 years ago, their standards leave a lot to be desired, my lasting impression was as a 747 Flight Engineer when the f/o was being converted to a Capt.
If you think you control speed in the climb with the thrust levers is OK, and ignore decision heights during a ADF approach, using large amounts of bank during the final phase of approach , unstable speed in the last 200 feet OK. and losing control of the aircraft during a 3 engine shut down is OK then,.............. having nothing said by the instructor who then signed his paperwork for the conversion to the Left hand seat this is the outfit for you!!
I advised my operations department that I would refuse to fly with him if rostered,
He was pushed out to the Cargo division of the company

Hey TT,

"It always amazed me that more 747 freighters aren't demolished amongst the third tier operators (not just AAI) - the most incompetent aviators I have come across have been on Jumbo freighters, but no-one seems to care... "

Maybe you're making the job harder than it has to be. If it truely was that difficult, wouldn't you see more accidents than you do ?
Were you one of those "incompetants" on the Jumbo freighters??? Just askin????

Recruitment for Air Atlanta continues to be exclusively via Airborne Personnel in the UK. You are only paid on the days you fly or are available to fly. You must also accept that you can be paid anytime up to the third week of the following month. There are numerous clauses in their contract which allow deductions from final pay. Read each word of their contract before signing. Airborne Personnel certainly do not have a reputation as one of the better agencies. This may be due to the fact that from the same office they trade under no less than three names;- Airborne Personnel, Mountain High and First2Resource.
