I attended Embry-Riddle for two years from 86-88. My Dad’s business went under at the time so I wasn’t able to finish it off.
But I did get my private/instrument single engine and did take commercial pilot written exam and passed. I have about 300 hours. But since the internet came out I have been involved with the IT industry, I like it, but I want to do something that I love for a career. I am 49.
I have been told I’m still worth a good 16 years of flight time. I hear of doctors and lawyers in my age range switching careers as well…but will an airline hire me when I’m 50 after going through ATP?
Do airlines require a degree?
Where I am at with experience, will ATP be able to integrate me and get me current again while still being equal to everyone else in the class?
I am looking at flight schools, but ATP seems to keep popping up as the defacto standard in the industry for training.
Thanks for your time.
