View Full Version : Convenient multi engine training

Dear fellow pilots,

A time ago I asked for advice. I asked if anyone could help me find most affordable and convenient flight school where I could do my ATP.
Having to travel very far from South East Asia to USA, do the required training and then check ride in addition to covering accommodation and food might affect that months income quite a bit.

Now this is just the cost, but then the company you work for only gives you 12 days off where 70 hours are spent on travel to and from the USA. Having jet lag the first couple of days doesnít make it better either.

I unfortunately didnít get any help. I know you guys have probably heard this many times before and probably was fed up with this question. I appreciate no one came with rude comments like other pilot forums.

I did my research that took me couple of days and many phone calls.

Having said that, I did travel all the way and completed it.

Many of you are in the same situation or might be in the situation. Limited on time and want to do it most affordable without having decreased the quality of training. I want to share what I found out and hope some of you can benefit from it.

Below are the most convenient places I found with state and price for their multi engine add on and/ or ATP price.

I hope someone it can be of a help for someone.

Many times people post "I want to come to the U.S. and learn to fly. What is the best school?" Define "best"? Cheapest, newest planes, most thing to do when you're not in the plane? It's impossible. Plus many people do not understand the sheer size of the country. You can drive from the top to the bottom of England in a long afternoon. It can sometimes take 3 hours to get from point to point in the metro complex I live in. There's no way to have knowledge of all the flight schools in the country. So we just roll our eyes and move to the next thread. You have obviously spent hours tracking down info and it is incredibly nice of you to share this information. Karma will be kind to you.

I hope to help out anyone who find this useful.

Guys looking looking to do their ATPL, limited on time, money, looking for best transit and all other reasons will especially find this useful.

I am not looking for any feedback on this. As long as this shows up when pilots search for something similiar should be good enough.

Yes, thanks. I saw your request and know of some schools but I've been in the airlines for so long that I'm not really comfortable recommending schools anymore...which may have been good to me last century, but I have no idea how they are today.
