As a follow up, I just finished my ATP with Herb at PAS, and it was a great experience. He is an excellent instructor, and he and Kathy are awesome hosts and genuinely good people. A great deal for the price, and I went into the check ride completely prepared. Herb is booked through the 31 July ATP deadline, but I highly recommend any training you can do with him... Money well spent...

Navy Annapolis Flight Center has room but the schedule is pretty crowded.
Same DPE used every time and practical exam is predictable. Expect 3-5 days of hard work to get done. Ask for Jenny or Frank.

Downtown Aviation in Memphis was awesome. Day 1: Ground school and prep flight, Day 2: Checkride. $1850 for everything! Highly recommend them and their examiners are great! No surprises.

X2 on Downtown Aviation. Study the packet they send you prior to arrival and it'll go smoothly. I'd factor in a weather day just in case, but good folks there.

Long time lurker, first time poster... about to retire as a Navy pointy-nose guy. Anybody have recent experience with FTI Ratings, specifically their ATP-CTP and ATP practical for military in DEN? 320 or 75 sim, and would remove my c/l thrust restriction.

It's a little pricey, but seems like a good idea to knock it all out at once because of where I live, timing, etc. Have any other single seat bubbas done their program? I'm much more comfortable in a glass jet versus a light twin, but obviously haven't spent much time in a real flight deck. Don't want to throw away $6k if I'm better off just doing their ground school course and going elsewhere like N.A.F.C.?

Its been awhile but I used All ATPs... they are really setup for guys like you. I was a pointy nose C/L thrust restricted guy past life with about 15 hours of SE time a no prop twin time and had no issues with flying a twin to pass the ATP. I guess if your end desire is to work at SWA then do the 737 type... if not save your money... you'll need it first year.
