Hi! I am considering a career change into aviation. I am approved for the amount for ATP. I am wondering about financing for the 7 months of living expenses. Are additional student loans an option? What about health insurance? Thank you!
You’ll need enough money to cover your expenses including health insurance (that you’ll need to secure yourself). Getting additional funds on your loan is the most common option.
During your loan application, you have an option to add a few thousands of dollars to help offset your living expenses. During your attendance at ATP you are responsible for your own health insurance.
Health insurance is something you’ll need to cover on your own from training through making it to the regionals. So something cheap but also covers the necessary expenses you know you’ll need over the next two years.
