My name is Kyle. I’m 32 years old and I’m an upcoming FlexTrack student at the ATP Orlando campus. I am a full time firefighter/paramedic in the Orlando area. I enrolled in the FlexTrack, and I believe it will meet my needs, as my fire department shifts are a 24 on 48 off schedule. I intend to complete the program as quickly as possible and I intend to provide 4 days of availability per week. I start on 1/3, but I have been studying and since the beginning of November.
Like most of you, I have a deep seated passion for aviation, that began while I was very young. My fire department’s training center is located under the approaches for both for KMCO and KORL. Prior to enrolling at ATP, I frequently found myself looking up and wondering, “Why aren’t you flying instead?” I’ve been a full time firefighter for the last 10 years. If firefighting has taught me anything, life is very short, and you need to live it to the fullest extent possible.
I have taken the opportunity to learn as much as possible, prior to the start of my program. I appreciate all the advice provided on the forum, and I look forward to the opportunity to help other forum members in the future. See you all in the sky,
