You are more than welcome. . Do some research, I was not the least bit pleased with ATP's when I researched them. 190 hours of multi at a low total time will mean very little if anything to you, gotta love the way they market this program. If you give ATP's close to $40,000 then you may need a reality check. . I would not even contemplate this if I were you and would highly suggest that you do your research prior to giving up this kind of cash. It is not "cheaper" than Airman and a lot of what they sell off is nothing more than propaganda. . If you truly want a "fast track" to the airlines then look into the Mesa Airlines Pilot Development Program, you can't even compare the two..comander said:thank you both very much for your responses. great help this site is. thanks once again.
Thats a valid point, BUT... that multi time never gets taken away from you, and once you get your Total Time built up, your sitting good with that 200 multi. If you want to go to any regional, or cargo outfit, you'll easily have the mins met.350DRIVER said:190 hours of multi at a low total time will mean very little if anything to you, gotta love the way they market this program.
I would REALLY like to believe you, but you must understand my skepticism. In some cases, the 'catching up' occurs at the worst possible time with innocent lives in the back. What if 3701 had been a revenue flight?350DRIVER said:100LL, very good points and I agree with you for the most part. Those seeking an easy way out usually will be "caught" and stopped dead in their tracks at some point down the line during an interview process and/or simulator evaluation. One can only slip through the cracks for so long before the past truly catches up with them.
See the multi time post.If your a CFI, they typically don't put you into a MEI position right away. That typically goes on seniority, and it can literally be months or years before you get that privelage. Then some smaller schools have so few Multi students, that even once you are teaching as a MEI, that it could still take you months to build suitable multi time. You will have probably easily have built up your single-engine (total time) up enough to be competitive at that point if you have the 200 multi
