Thanks for the info guys. I have about 125 hours and feel that with a wife and job as a Plant manager, that I cant get enough time to study(I am 26 btw). It seems as though there is alway someone calling from work, or my wife wants me to spend time with her. And no I will not need anyone to take care of her while I am off trying to become a flyboy. I am sure many of you feel the same, I mean about needing to be surrounded by the whole flight thing, to help you attain your goal as fast as possible with the min. amount of hangups. I myself am leaning toward ATP just because of the speed of the program and the amount of ME hrs. Not that I want to leave my high paying job and not get to see my family just to take a low paying CRJ job in a couple of years, but to go from having a job to a career.

Stay away from regional airline academy

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

That school will tell you anything you want to hear to get you to go there. Take it from me I been there. That was the worst experience of my life. They milk you on everything . IF you can complete an instrument course quickly they will say oh no not good enough more time needed to milk that money. They say oh well get you hired in 600 or less BULL **** . THe staff & the owner is BULL ****. The type rating program is a joke. They want 18,500 just for the CRJ 200 type not including PREP or anyhting just the type! you can go to PAN am IN WASH DC and get it all for 9000 bucks out the door. If you leave before your training is complete they will bad mouth you to the airlines if you go elsewere. They try to completely run your life and its bull ****. I would highly recommend ATP's there program is a whole lot more organnized. I wish i would have known better. I cant stand the staff the owners nothing about the place at all. The quality of training is very poor and many young aspiring pilots chose regional b/c of the promises to someday be an airline pilot. Regional Airline Academy is a joke. They are now implementing a 142 program where you will be finished in 9 mnths and only 350tt and 25 multi and go to an airline. That is no real life experience by that time you are barely capable of flying a Seneca I or Duchess X crnty much less a CRJ. I was personally scammed out of 18,500 by them ! Take it from someone who has dealt with the selfish ****ers dont go there! any questions please feel free to contact me. PLEASE SAVE YOUR MONEY

Default From an ATP instructor.

First of all, they don't require you to take any jet transition. It is not even included in the Airline Career Pilot Program. We have letters of agreement with 4 different airlines. None of which are my first choice, but anyway, and they are the ones who require that our instructors do this course. We get it a 70% discount from what public pays for it. I personally know most of the people on the website who got hired and only one so far didn't make it through the initial training at the airline. Getting a job here is easy, as long as you didn't fail multiple checkrides. They want to hire the guys that just did the program, and with 25 locations nation wide, you can pick were you want to go. Don't let all these other people tell how ATP operates unless they have been here. And our guys do get hired with 500 hours total time because they have so much multi-time when they do get hired. Of my 450 hours, I have 320 hours multi. Post any questions, and don't pay attention to people unless they know.
