Just thought I’d let you all know everything with the Admission Flight went well, I did it out at TTN in New Jersey. Definitely felt comfortable going from my everyday use of a Piper Cherokee 180 to the Piper Archer, the only difference was the updated technology of a G500 and GNS430 which the Cherokee doesn’t have.
My impressions of the school was interesting because they were using the second floor of the Signature building in what was like the size of an apartment…my CFI did inform me that all locations are different so I suppose some other places may be bigger or some smaller. I thought that what I saw was a nice set up, wish they had more than one main office for the CFIs, but they seemed to work well cooperating in the space. Two simulators, one that was newer for single engine and multi-engine that I was informed is older.
I was curious about the amount of aircraft at that base, my question to you guys is, does ATP relocate aircraft based on student population? At TTN they only had one Archer and Seminole, I believe they had another Archer in New York for a student’s checkride.
My next step in this journey is now visiting some other locations and tour a bit, get my first class medical out of the way, and put down a deposit for the materials and course start date once I figure where I’m going! Surely, but slowly the journey is coming together.
