Want to thank you all for the valuable information you’ve shared and helped others with while they’re on their journey. I think most of my questions have been searched and found, but one that quickly comes to mind:
- I have a local airfield that offers Part 141 schooling (PPL, Instrument Rating, CFI, & Commercial Pilot Certificate). However I’d have to do my ME Rating at another school (which they had suggestions and mentioned it could be accomplished in a weeks time?) I’ve been researching ATP Flight School and while it looks awesome and that it seems to guarantee 100% direction to a commercial pilot position, I can’t justify uprooting my wife, and 3 kids (with another on the way). So is it that big of a deal to not go to an ATP Flight School? The airfield I’ve mentioned has had a couple students pursue a commercial pilot career from their field, and it’d just be a whole lot easier for our family if it can be done.
A little background on myself. I’m 34, wife & soon to be 4 kids. My wife and I work for our family business, but it’s very flexible and I believe I can do this part time while working part time. I realize I’d be sacrificing a year or little longer by doing this, but this allows us to keep things somewhat familiar in the meantime…
Thank you for your time and if I have more questions, I’ll be sure to post them in here
