Starting ATP School

Hello All,

I am starting a new chapter in life to pursue a dream of becoming a commercial pilot. I am joining ATP school next month and would like any good advice or information if possible please. Thank you!

We highly recommend taking as many written tests as you can before you start.

I just noticed that you’re starting next month. That’s enough time to take the PAR, IRA and FII written tests if you study every day.

I appreciate your feedback sir!!

Nik,

I completely agree with Tory here. Focus on getting one or two written exams complete as that will give you a nice head start in the program.

Hi again,

Yes I did look at what Tory sent. I was reading thru, do I need to join a particular school to take my exam? Where do I go or who do I contact? Sorry if this sounds like a stupid question.

Nik,

If you read the link I sent, you would know. Everything you need to know is on this page, including how to prepare, how to get endorsed, how to schedule, how to pay…

Hi Tory,

I misread the paragraph. Thought that ATP enrolls you in to prep course but just reread the link to go through King School for PAR and then for second two you get enrolled. Thank you!!

To be clear, you will go through King Schools via ATP, not directly to King Schools. If you have registered and placed your deposit down with ATP, all of this information should be available to you.
