Starting with PPL


If you come into ATP with a PPL but do not have the full 80 hours, can you make up the differential at ATP and then proceed with the program from there?

Thank you,


Yes ATP will allow you to enroll and make up the difference ( but you need to let them know well in advance so they can ensure you have sufficient time to make up the time.


I did this, I was missing about twelve hours when I started the program, I came a few days early and got a head start on the instrument training.

What I’m doing is colecting the difference at my current flight school and I’ll start the intrument with PPL and 80 hours in Nov 26 in Portland OR.
