Well I made a decision!

Hello all!

First off, thank you to all of the pilot mentors that are on this forum. Your feedback with various topics on this forum has greatly impacted my ability to make a decision on what to do moving forward.

With that being said, I am excited to announce I have a class starting date for 8/15/2022!! I will be training at the Greenville, SC ATP location and I can’t wait to be started!

Yes it is!

Congrats on it! There really isn’t a better decision you can make if your goal is a career as a pilot.

As always, if you can, we suggest you get started on your writtens. While not required it definitely lightens the load!



Congrats on picking a start date and thank you for letting us know. I am glad that we could play some small role in your decision.

Please keep checking in with us as you go through the program and as always, feel free to ask any questions that you may have.

Between now and August, you should be able to knock out several of the written exams:


Congratulations! It’s a very exciting time indeed. There’s never been a better time to become an airline pilot.

We’re happy you’ve found this site and it helped you get started in this career. We love to follow you throughout your program and hear of your successes. It won’t be long at all until you’re posting a picture of your first solo!


Congrats, Thomas!

I take it that you were able to obtain your first class medical without the SODA?


I will definitely focus on getting a head start with the written exams leading up to August.

@Tory — You are correct. No issues at all acquiring my 1st class. That was a big relief as I was really stressing that part of the process

I look forward to keeping y’all posted on my progress!


Glad to hear it!


Congratulations on your start date at Greenville in August!

Like Adam and Chris mentioned about getting a head start on the Airmen Knowledge Test (writtens), you could theoretically get the core ones (PAR, IRA/FII and CAX) completed prior to your start date.
