A HUGE thank you to our Pilot Mentors (@Adam, @Chris, @Hannah and @Tory) and Admin (@Addison) for all the advice and suggestions, no matter how repetitive a question may be or awkwardly worded. Without the forum and being able to interact with others and see where others may have struggled/succeeded, it all assisted with developing plans for certain phases of the program. I have met amazing people not only through this forum, but through ATP in general. The experiences, friendships and memories are going to be cherished forever.
I highly recommend to any prospect to give ATP an ear, I promise you these modern planes that we’re flying are amazing. The avionics in them alone are some of the top-notch systems you won’t find everywhere. It is a huge commitment, but what comes with high risk comes with high reward. Focus, determination, and motivation will be your key throughout the program. What you put through for your training is the outcome you will receive; put forth maximum effort and dedication and I promise you…you will enjoy your time at ATP.
