Starting ATP Flight School


I just wanted to say thank you for everyone on this forum. I am excited to announce that i’m starting ATP on August 1st and in the fast track paced program and set to finish by April 2023.

I just received all my books, uniform, and backpack in the mail and also ordered the required aviation headset and iPad.

Thank you to everyone on this forum for answering my questions and assisting me in the process. I hopefully start CFI academy in Charlotte, NC for 3 weeks in May and I can instruct for a couple years and become a regional pilot (piedmont air/psa air is my goal!)

I appreciate every single one of you and can’t wait to start the journey. Thank you!

Sincerely, Androu


Congrats Androu! You’ve taken the single best first step towards a career in aviation. Work hard and you will do well.

I recommend starting on your Private Pilot written, you can utilize the Sporty’s Study Buddy Test Prep App on your iPad if you have not yet started:

As Jerry Crawford once said: “To most people, the sky is the limit. To those who love aviation, the sky is home.” Welcome to the Aviation & ATP family!
