Absolutely get it. Hopefully it will make the difference between getting a job or not during these dark days. When you do get a job it will also simplify your type rating oral.

Doesn't guarantee you a job but shows you put in the effort to exceed the minimum requirements if you go 135.
Bit of an old thread revival, but did the approval come through? Mind sharing where you went and thoughts? Have the hours and debating getting a CTP/Type combo somewhere, have some GI to burn.

In today's market, definitely do it. One more box checked is nothing but a good thing. I did my ATP/737 type back in '16 with FTI in Miami and they were great. Not sure their offers now, but I did the accelerated, 1 week course. CBTs before you go, Day 1 systems review and test, 6 sims, then check. Ran me $8900, plus hotel, rental car, and airfare of course.

Good insight, seeing a lot of people post 'deals' they're scoring on CTP/ATP and types since it seems a lot of seats are sitting empty, going to reach out to them, thanks for the feedback. The ATP 737 is what I'm shooting for. Currently flying ISR and paychecks are good, but may as well hit it now if I can save a few bucks.

To close the loop on this. I ended up doing the ATP on my own dime. After finishing the written and sitting there with the time and not following it through to the end, felt kind of half-assed to me.

Back to teaching until hiring resumes somewhere.
