ATP Experience

Simple Question. Can an individual really attend and succeed at ATP with ZERO knowledge and experience in Aviation? All I have is a passion and extreme determination to become a commercial pilot, but I am afraid I’ll need more than just that to succeed at ATP.

Justin,

In short it happens every day! No previous knowledge or experience necessary. You do need commitment, desire and a VERY strong work ethic. Obviously you will need some level of intelligence and coordination but nothing the average person can’t handle.

Thank you very much for your quick response! This answer brightened my day!

Justin,

The vast majority of ATP’s students start with no flight time and no knowledge of aviation. It takes hard work, good study habits and determination, but it is certainly doable for the vast majority of students.
