I am currently 21 years old will turn 22 soon (Hopefully not too late to someday to be working with major airlines). No flight experience except when I was 15 I joined the Young Eagle Aviation program. I am currently attending a local community college planning to get my associate degree if by the time I still can’t find loans. Right now, financial is my biggest problem. I am planning to do the integrated ATPL so when I graduate flight school hopefully I am able to become an CFI, while waiting on the interviews call from regional? (or do i require more hours from being an CFI?)
If everything goes according to plan (I can take out loans and solve my financial), I will put my associate degree to a hold and finish the flight training, then, if necessary, will I be able to flight instruct while attending to finish my associate?
I haven’t try to take out any loans yet, I had never loan before, so I am not sure if I am able to take out loans as much as $120k.
Also, what are reputations and difference of ATP flight school compare to L3 or CTC flight academy? Do ATP have or offer partnerships with any of the airlines? (Regional or Major doesn’t matter to me for start). I am truly dedicated to becoming an airline pilot for my career. I am not afraid of taking out high amounts of loans if possible. Therefore, since I am putting down a big investment of my own, I want to ensure the best I can get out of my investment. I want to know what are my chances of working with the regional at first when I finish the fast pilot track program.
Thank you for reading,
