Hi Everyone! I am in need of some starting off advice as I am a prospective pilot, living in Seattle and holding two passports! I'm a British national who has been a US Citizen also since 2004. I am willing to relocate globally to train and would like to know the best/fastest way to get into the industry. I would love some advice on my plan to see if it sound in the mind of you more experienced pilots and students! PLAN: Join ATP Flight school. I heard that ATP are a good school and offer a great fast track program (9-12 months from 0 hours to Commercial License. QUESTION; I hear its cheaper to fly in Florida? Also, would this same flight school be cheaper there perhaps? Sign up with Horizon Air, through ATP, to dedicate myself to them after I obtain my ATPL at 1500 hours in exchange for ~$11,000 tuition reimbursement. Fly with flight school as a CFI (not ATP, have heard working for them isn't as good?) to get myself up to 1500 hours. Fly with Horizion for several years (?) before being eligable to move onto a larger airline. Questions: Are there any other options for me to get up to 1500 hours? Perhaps there is something available to me outside of the US as a European national (until Brexit completes!)? How long does it usually take (and how many hours) to be considered for a Pilot position within a larger airline? What is the average time for someone to start there training and then get their first Major airline position? Is it better for me to consider somewhere like Florida (where sunshine is more prevalent!) for flight school AND a job as a CFI instead of Seattle? Thank you all for your guidance! Please let me know if there is anything I have perhaps overlooked. Any suggestions welcome!
