You are doing it right. I'm still paying for my college and flight training and I will be for a while. We all get the same certificate so why not get the best deal.

My CRJ systems course was really helpful when I was typed in a Shorts. Thanks UND. /sarcasm

141 mandates that. With 61, you can have that if you want/need it. Just follow a syllabus and be willing to pay for the ground time. If the CFI doesn't like the structure, find another CFI.
Well...I didn't know that much about it and I was getting my CFI for free so I wasn't going to complain. I didn't make it all the way through with her though. I eventually finished up at the P141 FBO and really enjoyed the atmosphere and training.

I always thought the major benefit to Part 141 was if you have a chance for a R-ATP license. Otherwise, wouldn’t cheapest make the most sense for training (and you’d probably be doing Part 61 in that case)?

This thread is over ten years old...

When it was started, R-ATP did not exist nor did you need it because you could legally get an airline job with 200 hours (nobody really hired that low except mesa). The colgan crash which precipitated the 1500 requirement (and R-ATP exception) was still a couple months away.

Today...

Some of the best majors seem to give some preferential treatment for completion of a structured university flight program, in addition to the R-ATP allowance.

In the past the answer was part 61 unless you had a really good reason for 141 (such as VA bennies). Today it's not so clear-cut. You could make a case either way, and probably comes down to money (whether you have any). Probably not worth saddling your young self with crushing debt for decades just to get to a major a few months or 1-2 years sooner. But if you can afford it, getting to the majors sooner will pay off in the long run.

It’s probably not an accident the most respected by airlines AND the most structured schools do begin with “UNITED STATES”. Not tagging on anyone, but structure ensures the right training and lessons are covered, the stage checks tend to reduce checkride jitters, The Who,e process makes for a more skilled and uniform pilot. Which is why airlines like it—they know what they are getting.
