Hello all! Currently 3.5 years into my 5 year commitment with the NAVY looking into the 6 month PPL to ATP Program. When I transition out of the navy, my intentions are to commission into the reserves while I’m both a student and instructing with ATP. Has anybody done this, and can you please share your experiences? Specifically, I’d like to know if you felt you were unable to accommodate your students when you were a CFI due to your monthly commitments.
Also, do you know anyone currently flying for airlines while in the military reserves? Are they frowned upon or have issues getting deployed and trying to come back to work for the airline? I’m trying to figure out the best course of action for my family regarding healthcare, and just living expenses for the time while going through the student portion of training. We have plenty of time to save some money at least! Thank you for any responses!
