Hi there everyone! My name is Hannah and I’m starting to do my research on becoming a pilot. I’ve dreamt about it since I was 10, am now 31, but was nay-sayed against it by everyone in my family so I let it go, but it’s always been there nagging in my mind. I’m now at a point in my life where a career change is the only way I can move forward, and I have been seriously considering flight since I cannot get rid of the desire to fly.
I’ve been reading the forums here and looking at several other organizations to get as much information as I can, and right now ATP seems to be the absolute best course I can take (although, as I said, I’m still weighing all options).
A little of what I’ve seen about using ATP fast track is that people have been mentioning Flight Simulators to do in down time and such, especially before you even get in the cockpit just to prep you - as it were - for the real thing. Now, as of this moment I do not have an iPad yet, I just have an iPhone. First question is, are there any apps for the iPhone that could compare as a good Flight Simulator that I could start on?
I also haven’t been able to find an actual statistic for what percent of ATP fast track students actually get hired by airlines? I’ve seen the numbers of how many have been hired, but haven’t seen the numbers on how many students there were to pull from. Just wondering if anyone knows where I might find that information to see what the actual percentage of graduates that get jobs might be?
