Atlas Air, Inc., a subsidiary of Atlas Air Worldwide Holdings, Inc., has announced that Alpine Air has joined its Pathway to Success Program for qualified pilots.
Alpine Air operates over 80 aircraft and is one of America’s largest all-cargo regional on-demand contract airlines, including the transport of mail packages and other time-sensitive cargo for the United States Postal Service and the United Parcel Service.
Patricia Goodwin-Peters, senior vice president of human resources of Atlas Air Worldwide, said: “We have long respected Alpine Air for its strong reputation as a regional air cargo provider that also serves some of the same customers on our own roster.
“Partnering with Alpine Air gives Atlas Air the opportunity to tap into a talent pipeline that includes some of the air cargo industry’s most experienced pilots.”
Bob Frisch, chief operating officer of Alpine Air Express, said: “Alpine Air Express is proud to partner with Atlas Air in their Pathway to Success Program.
“Atlas Air is a leader in cargo and charters with a large fleet across multiple aircraft platforms. This Pathway to Success Program provides a highly advantageous opportunity for Alpine Air pilots who wish to join an industry leading carrier such as Atlas Air.”
To be considered for the programme, candidates must be an employee in good-standing with Alpine Air and meet a number of criteria, including meeting Atlas Air’s minimum qualifications, have 18 months of service with Alpine (reduced to 12 months with prior military flight training experience), and have a letter of recommendation from Alpine Air’s chief pilot.
