I am currently working on my fixed wing PPL at a local school and hoping to finish up this coming February (2022). I hope to then start at ATP in MN shortly after that (March 2022 if able). However, I just read online that to get credit for your PPL, ATP requires not only that you have your PPL, but you also have 78+ total flight hours and 8+ cross country PIC hours… Does anyone know why this is?
Does rotor time count towards this total? I went to flight school for the Army and have about 330 total rotor time with instrument/commercial rotor ratings. I would hope that this would at least count towards the 78+ hours of TT. Any info provided would be greatly appreciated1
Looking forward to getting started!
