I am a fast track student who started June 21. Tomorrow is my pre-solo evaluation and I am quite worried. It took me two tries to pass the TOL eval as I struggled some with landings and I seem to have taken a step back on the last two flights (especially with crosswind). My pattern looks great, I just struggle with the last twenty feet or so. If I fail the eval tomorrow will I be removed from the program? I’ve read that it could happen and I know I’ll have to speak with my TSS (and possibly TSM). I’ll also note that, despite failing an eval, I am only one day behind in the program. I want nothing more than to stay and make my dream a reality, but I am concerned. I know ATP stresses that they honor your investment and don’t want you “wasting your money”, but I am completely fine with any overage fees that may incur. Especially considering that I am roughly $14k in debt at this point with 48 hours of training and may have to start from scratch at another school.
Lastly, I feel like someone may reply and say, “Well you may not be cut out for this. The airlines are fast-paced as well and if you can’t keep up here, you will struggle there as well.” I totally understand that, but it really is just the landings and I don’t feel I am far off. This wasn’t the start I was hoping for to say the least, and maybe I’m just being delusional… what do y’all think? Do I still have a shot at remaining in the program with two “UNSAT” evals? Thanks!
