I am currently in the process of getting everything in order to start training in the spring, I know someone who is planning on going to another school in Florida. It is one of those basic get in get your Certs and move on types of schools. They have been trying to talk me into going to that school instead because it will be much cheaper. I told them that one of the advantages of ATP is that they offer graduates the opportunity to stay within ATP and Instruct, this negates the need to hunt for a job to fill the remaining flight hours needed.
They told me that once they get their CFI they can go to their local ATP and instruct. I guess my question is, Does ATP Hire outside instructors or is my friend being lied to?
