l got a quick question, what’s better? in order to be qualified to join ATP,? getting a private pilot license at a local flight school, or doing a two years degree at a community college.
here is my thing, where l live there"s a community college that offers a program that is called professional airplane pilot, at this program they can get me not only the two years degree but also all the license that i’d need to be an airline pilot. and of course since it’s a community college is just an associate’s, but l was checking the total cost of the program and it’s a lot of cheaper than ATP. but here is the main concern i got about them, they don’t have any agreement with any airline yet nor guarantee a CFI job like ATP does, in order to meet the minimum hours requirement that most mayor airlines have.
Here is the other way I was thinking about there’s also a local flight school that offers the PPL program for only 7 thousands dollars. to me that sounds like a deal. and would make eligible to start at ATP. but I won’t have no degree. if I go that way.
any advice here?
