Hey y’all !
So, after some consideration, and discussion with a few family members, I have come to the conclusion to obtain my PPL outside of ATP. Now, with that being said, ATP is quite a fine school (the best in the country, in fact). However, for my personal situation, I think it would be best to go about obtaining my PPL at a slower pace. The reason being that I want to make sure that I actually have an aptitude for flying in general. I also believe that by going slower, I’ll be able to digest the material better. The last thing I want to do is jump into a highly accelerated program, not knowing anything related to flying, then I wash out. I personally feel like for me, getting my PPL at a slower pace will give me the greatest chance of success as a whole. I found a pretty decent school near where I live, and will be flying around 2-3 lessons per week. I do intend on enrolling into ATP’s ACPP with Private credit once I do obtain my PPL.
I’ll keep everyone updated on my progress through training. Mainly as a personal log, but it may be helpful information for those who want to do what I’m doing.
