Obtaining Private Pilots License


(Donovan Meridieth) #1

What is the best way to get your private pilots license. I tried to get it at ATP, however they replied that I must first obtain my private pilot license before I attend ATP. I’m confused.

Donovan,

ATP is a flight school created for people who want to pursue a career in aviation. As such they don’t offer Private Pilot training as a stand alone course. It’s only available as part of the Career Pilot Program. There are thousands of small flight schools all across the country that would be happy to train you for your Private if you’re only looking to fly recreationally or aren’t sure if it’s what you want to do career wise. A simple Google search for flight schools in your area should help.

Donovan,

You will need to find a local flight school and obtain your PPL there.
