I recently learned about my projected monthly payment if I’m to finance my training via Sallie Mae. I’ve spent some time looking over ATP’s page regarding the specifics of pay while being a CFI with ATP, and I’m trying to ascertain how feasible it is to pay for housing, make loan payments, and generally sustain myself while being a CFI. Any input would be hugely appreciated.
If there’s anyone in this corner of the forums who is/has been a CFI with ATP, were you able to make payments towards your loan, afford housing and living expenses with relative ease? Did you find yourself having difficulties making ends meet? Did you need to pick up extra instructing hours to get by, and if so, was it difficult to do so?
If this post needs to be moved to a different part of the forums (such as Student Experiences), let me know.
