Atp?


(Tyler Garcia ) #1

I am currently a senior in high school and I’m near the end I’m very confident that I want to be an airline pilot but is ATP the way to go? A while back I had thought about Embry Riddle but the cost is just way too out of hand and ATP is in a reasonable price range, i’m located in Riverside does anybody know any of the house in Rules Riverside? How much it would cost and where it is? Another question is does ATP give me into the airlines will it make a differenc how much it would cost and where it is? Another question is does ATP give me into the airlines will it make a difference not having a bachelors but having my private and my hours?
Thanks

Tyler,

First of all to train at ATP you need either a 2yr degree, equivalent work experience or your Private Pilots license. I would strongly encourage you to continue your education before beginning your flight training. You’ll need a degree to be successful and frankly your language skills need some work (I’m not really sure what you’re asking in some of your questions?).

As far as details of the program I suggest you visit the ATP website for cost, locations and policies.

Tyler,

I stayed at the Riverside housing, but this was 4 years ago. It may not be the same and ATP may not even offer housing at that location anymore. They keep an updated list online which also includes pricing:

Like Adam said though, you’re a couple of years away from being eligible to begin the program:

Lastly, choosing a flight school is a decision that you will need to make yourself. I recommend you spend some time reading the articles in the FAQ section of this forum. Start there and see where it takes you.

Let us know if you have any other questions.
