My Student Schedule! 2/14-2/20

Continuing with posting my student schedule. WITH MORE DETAIL!

This one is a bit unusual but it will give you a see into an unusual week at ATP. This week my instructor was out for most of it, so other instructors were picking up my hours. Most days the instructors didn’t have enough time for me so my schedule is a bit wild, and I didn’t fly many hours.

Keep in mind all “hours logged” is real ASEL time. Sim time is not counted in that. I’ve also included the time I spent on ground study, so you can see a study schedule example.

Lucas,

Thank yo for posting your schedule, I am really enjoying seeing the insight into the program schedule as it is now.

For those who might be wondering, actually flying is one of the things that you will spend the least amount of time doing in the program. I know everybody wants to fly, but the real emphasis is on learning the material, that means ground instruction and studying. The airplane is not the place to learn a concept, on the ground is. The simulator also plays a huge role in pilot training. It is far more forgiving than the airplane and is a much better place to learn basic concepts.
