I currently have my Associate’s degree in Business Admin. I’m taking lessons at a private club to get my PPL. I’m planning on getting the PPL first and starting ATP next July.
My question is, if I get my Bachelors’s in aviation online, will that count towards the ATP hour requirement? I know that if you have a degree you only need 1000 hrs VS. 1500. And is there any online school that is recommended? or would you guys mind sharing your experience?
If you do your flight training through ATP, you will have to get 1500 hours for the ATP rating. You would not qualify for any RATPs with less hours - regardless of whether you have a degree or not. The only RATPs that are possible for students of ATP is the lowered age (21) and the lowered xc time (200).
