I’m currently three months into the 40 hour career pilot program at ATP and it’s going very smoothly and I’m super glad that I started down this path.
A little background before my question: I’m a bit of a nomad and my career before I started at ATP allowed me to move around the country pretty often. I would move around about once or twice a year or so and I even spent some time living out of a camper and was on the road constantly for around 6 months. I love that lifestyle and would like to continue it.
So my question: Is it possible to move around a lot (like every six months or so) when you are working at an airline? Would that change between airlines or major/regional carriers? I know a lot of people may live out of state and commute to their base. Does the airline expect you to always commute from the same location?
It seems like this should be totally possible but I don’t want to get my hopes up and have unreasonable expectations. I hope I explained myself clearly. I just want the freedom to live in one state for a few months and then go to another state then another state etc. (obviously, I’m single, no kids blah blah blah).
