Hi, my name is Murphy and I’ve been looking into ATP and will probably attend around June/July. One of my main concerns is which route I should take (corporate or airline) after I get my licenses and hours to start flying for either. I know ATP offers the reimbursement program and sets you up with a regional after finishing so it sounds like it’s geared more toward an airline career. So I guess more specifically my question would be can you attend ATP and still fly corporate? I’m sure it doesn’t matter where you get your wings at but would it be more cost effective to go ATP then fly corporate instead of attending a different school?
Also, what are the main differences between flying corporate and flying for an airline? I’ve talked to a couple pilots that have flown both but no one has really given me a major reason for choosing one over the other. One thing I want to get out of my career is to explore a lot of different, cool places around the world and it seems that if I flew corporate, I would get to see more exotic locations since most airlines fly into major airports which are located in big cities. Is that true?
