Good Evening Pilot Mentors,
I was wondering if you would recommend going to my local flight school. I would really love to go to ATP, but I simply can’t afford it. I have done some research and found another local flight school located at our major airport that will give me the same training for a fraction of the ATP price. I thought it sounded too good to be true, but they also are part of the XJT Preferred School Program. Also, would it be best to get the FCC Radio License before I start training? I have completed a first class medical exam and have to wait on the dreaded CPAP readings before they issue me a certificate.Like everyone else, my dream is to fly for a major airline. As a backfall though, I’m getting my degree in Aviation Management in case things don’t work out so I will always be in the aviation field.
I thought I would ask the professionals before I made any final decisions.
