I donít know for sure but...I canít imagine anybody being motivated enough to create their own ATP questions.

32 questions, 30 minutes. Any store bought ATP prep works. Only Purdue or similarly devoid of practical aviation experience types struggle with it. Usually 1-2 in each group are eliminated from continuing the day as a result.

Not to be a Debby downer, but are those fleet/hire numbers lower than what they were projecting?

Default ATP written

Thanks Mad Max for the hiring info. I would definitely be interested in more information on the ATP written if anyone had it. Is every section fair game? Or can we skip studying for 135 regs and how to properly load a helicopter ect?

Fleet numbers, no. Hiring numbers, yes. And we all know they never hit their target so Iíll call my bookie and take the under on both bets.
