Hello again all,
I am becoming pretty set on my plan of obtaining my PPL before enrolling at ATP for a variety of reasons. In addition to this, I would like to be able to study for and pass the ground school portion before actually beginning my flight training. I am curious how to go about doing this: do I simply buy books and study on my own time? Can I simply request an exam once I feel adequately prepared? Also, I have heard mention on here of doing this same process with the written exams required by ATP before enrolling. Is this something that is really possible, as in studying for and passing written exams all the way up to your multi-commercial before doing any practical learning past your private license material? Looking forward to any helpful information.
