Hello Pilot Mentors and ATP Staff,
I just have a quick question regarding completing a custom ACPP with ATP, and any opportunity to CFI with ATP after graduation from the program.
Are custom program students given the same level of consideration for a CFI opportunity with ATP as those who did the standard credit for private or zero time programs?
Assuming the student satisfies all the standard requirements that ATP has for CFI candidates (little to no Checkride failures, professional attitude, dependable and motivated person, etc) are custom students at any disadvantage given that they may not have gone through certain elements of the program such as Crew? Of course, I assume the CFI candidate would need to catch themselves up on what they missed and it would be on them to be familiar with all stages of the program so they could teach it to their students as an ATP CFI. Also assuming this is at a point (fingers crossed post zombie apocalypse) where demand for CFI’s picks up.
Thanks for your consideration.
