Worlwide contract on offer. The FO average starting pay is 300 USD per day plus 50 USD per day. For CPT the average starting pay is 400 USD per day. Actual pay to be determined according to experience and performance on the assessment and you're paid from the beginning of line training. Travel and accommodation to place of duty paid for by the company and the hotels are of good quality.
I think that after 300 days in the company you can apply for a fixed 3/2 roster.
It's a contractor position, so you have to look after your taxes. For some it can be interesting, for some not.

Two agencies available: Airborne (MHC Aviation) and Confair. Which of the two is the best?

I won't be the HR at the moment, reviewing tons of CVs, even with guys saying they can fly for free in their cover letters.

Yes, they have 2 options.
  1. Loan from Atlanta Flight Academy (AFA) - Price is $30k - $500 installment each month for 3 years, then the remaining $12k is written off Ė you will end up by paying $18k for the rating. If you leave within 3 years you need to pay the remainder of the $30k.
  2. Price is $23k - an upfront payment of $15k is required. The remaining amount will be deducted monthly ($667 a month) from the monthly fee within a maximum of one year.

I believe during your rotation you can fly on all the operations. They all fly out LGG, FRA and two of them also out of HHN.

The Haji season has always been a busy period for Air Atlanta and a nice opportunity for their pilots to make come extra money with overtime pay (it applies above 65 hrs in a 30 day period).

Bear in mind that in case they donít need you, they will not use you and you donít get paid as you are essentially a day worker. Something to think about before you fork out for a typerating. The next couple of years should see plenty of work though for the 747F

Ciao Banana, may I ask how that works? Do you mean they fly you out of a port of your choice at the beginning of your rotation, put you in a hotel prior to duty, and then fly you back at the end of your rotation?

Thanks.

This test will take half an hour. It consists of multiple choice questions. The question are ATPL.

They will not make it difficult for you, but they just want to know you better. Itís like a conversation/chat.
