Is it possible to finish the program (starting without private) faster than 9 months? Does ATP allow for students who are ready, and/or capable, to move faster? Is it just a discussion with your instructor?
I am curious as to how much, and in what way, preparation (All knowledge exams complete and significant learning module completion) prior to starting, factor into moving through the program. I know there are a lot of variables, such as scheduling conflicts, aircraft maintenance, and weather that can impact flying.
