Hello all! Before I begin with my update…a huge Thank You to Chris for guiding me in the right direction back in August!! This post is long overdue.
I’m not sure how many recall, but I was super frustrated due to being “underwhelmed” with ATP as I had a CFI who was not engaged in teaching and I was falling behind shortly after beginning the program despite my availability!!
Fast forward, big changes were made and I was assigned a new CFI. She is exactly what I needed. She helped me get caught up and even pushed me to get ahead. I began the program July 17th and completed my PPL in early October! I am now working towards my Instrument Rating and yes…checkride is set two weeks ahead of planned syllabus. Wish me luck!
I do not regret leaving an (almost) 20 year career with the judicial government to begin something new!!
Flying is a privilege and I sometimes still cannot believe I am where I am. For anyone considering making the jump from an established career to becoming a pilot, my recommendation is Go For It!!
Thank you to the mentors for all they give to this forum!
