I just wanted to share my experience with ATP so far. I attend the Denver location and started in mid April. Overall it has been an amazing experience. The instructors are great and are all willing to lend a hand when you need it. The schedule is busy at times, but definitely doable. My average day consists of 3-6 hours of self study and 2-4 hours of flight time. At about 6 weeks in, I am sitting with 40 hours of flight time. I just completed my busiest week yet which was finishing my take off and landing section and we did 2 cross country trips and my night flight. In the previous 5 days I flew a little over 16 hours. So far my favorite flight was the night flight. It came with an amazing view and provided a nice challenge when it comes to landing the plane. I start my solo prep next week and should see my first solo flight within the next couple of weeks. According to the program outline I am ahead of schedule by 10 days or so. We have had several weather days that haven’t allowed us to fly due to late spring snow storms. On those days I either self studied or got in the sim and completed some sim time.
I have really enjoyed my time with ATP so far and I’m really excited to keep improving. The program is challenging and keeps you learning all the time. As long as you study hard and keep a positive attitude, the fast pace of this program won’t be a problem. Best of luck to everyone!
