My name is Warner, I have a couple of questions about flight school. My first choice of school was ATP, however they do not accept my post 9/11 GI Bill. I tried many options to gain the finances to attend but in the end I can not prove over 60% of my income and my debt to income ratio was to great. I have taken a different approach a decided on a program at Tarrent County College in FortWorth TX, the program is referred to as the “Pipeline” program. Has anyone heard of this or have had any experience with this? My ultimate goal is to work for United Airlines and hopefully be a senior captain flying the 787 Dreamliner. As of now here are the steps I will take to achieve my goal, please let me know if I am doing this correctly. I will conduct ground school at the above referenced school. After i have my MEI i will go to work with ATP to be a flight instructor to finish accruing my 1500 hours. I will then go on to try to get hired on with a small express jet company achieve my 5000 hours to make the leap to UAL.
Thank you very much gentlemen, Warner.
