Atlas signs pilot agreement with Dallas-based Ameriflight
Nov 15, 2018: Atlas Air and Southern Air, units of Atlas Air Worldwide Holdings (AAWW), have entered into a pilot pathway agreement with Dallas-based cargo airline Ameriflight.
The agreement guarantees qualified Ameriflight pilots an interview with Atlas Air and Southern Air, creating an opportunity for career progression.
The world’s largest operator of modern Boeing 747 all-cargo aircraft, Atlas Air Worldwide, is widely recognised as a leading global provider of outsourced aircraft and aviation operating services. With a focus on express, e-commerce, and fast-growing markets, the company is in an era of significant growth and development, with opportunities to expand its cargo and passenger operations with existing customers and new ones.
“Our business is growing, and our airlines are a great place to build a career. Innovative partnerships like this one help us ensure a solid pipeline of qualified candidates dedicated to a career in aviation, which is at the center of today’s modern global economy,” said John W Dietrich, president and chief operating officer, Atlas Air.
“Our partnership with Atlas Air and Southern Air provides an exceptional career advancement opportunity for our pilots,” said Paul Chase, chief executive officer, Ameriflight.
“We have made a commitment to our team and the industry that Ameriflight will be the nation’s top place for pilots to become professional, major-airline ready, aviators. This is why we choose to align ourselves with the world’s best companies, like Atlas Air Worldwide.”
The Pilot Pathway Programme between Ameriflight, Atlas Air and Southern Air is open to qualified Ameriflight pilots. Participants will gain requisite experience fulfilling a number of benchmarks while at Ameriflight, including Atlas’ ATP/CTP programme, professional/career development programmes and more. Successful completion of the program will afford for these Ameriflight pilots a guaranteed interview with Atlas Air and Southern Air subject to hiring needs and meeting all programme and hiring requirements.
Under the programme, a Pathway Pilot reaching the outlined benchmarks will be recommended for Atlas’ ATP/CTP programme. Successful completion of the programme and acceptance of employment will result in the pilot being placed in an aircraft class, such as the 747 with Atlas Air for higher-time pilots or the 737 with Southern Air for lower-time, new-hire pilots.
