Hello, my name is Andrew. I am 17 years old, a senior in high school, and will have my PPL within the next month or so. I have been interested in the ATP program for quite a while now. I am considering going into the program out of the ISP (Islip) location after I graduate high school in June 2017.
Some questions I have:
- Does ATP allow scholarship money to be used towards the program?
- Will the Airline Tuition Reimbursement Program still apply to me, even though I will technically be 18 upon competition of ATP?
- Is it manageable to get an online degree in aviation (or any degree; only asking because I can get 33 credits from flying) whilst instructing and/or flying for a Part 135? I am considering going to Embry Riddle Worldwide (online) upon competition of ATP’s program.
- Are loan payments manageable working as a CFI? I may have the luck of not carrying any personal loans thankfully, but I may have to chip in on the loan to ease financial burdens in the family.
