Total Time

Hey all,

Just curious, but on average how many hours can one expect to have accumulated by the time they finish the airline career pilot program? And for the sake of argument lets assume the student chooses the 40hr multi option. Sorry if this is a silly question and I’m sure the answer is “it varies” but I still thought I should ask.




Actually the answer doesn’t vary that much at all (perhaps a few hours). If you check the ATP website ( it very clearly states you will complete the program with approx. 225hrs.
