Hey all, Really want to get into flying professionally on a very efficient schedule, any ideas about the best way to do that? I'd love to fly for majors, but (given age) would be perfectly content flying regionals/stable charter position. I have about 10 hours in towards my PPL, and just got my first class physical done. I'm 37 (I appreciate this is limiting), and have a BA in economics from a good school. Money is not a huge concern, paying from savings. I don't have any obligations in my personal life and can locate anywhere in the country and devote myself full-time to a program...I don't mind hours, worked a ton of 60-80 hour weeks in my life and its fine. Some things I've researched, open to others? 1. ATP - Big program, good timelines, structured, lots of "success stories" - but also a disconcerting number of negative reviews and they're about 10k more than most regional programs. 2. Smaller structured program - eg US Aviation Academy in Denton Texas - less expensive than ATP, some of them have only positive reviews, some of them have good airline connections. 3. Local unstructured programs - concern here is not being able to do it efficiently and lack of airline connections, billing getting out of control, and a local program committing to a certain schedule and then not being able to live up to it. If you were in my shoes - 37, plenty of time/savings for any program, BA, no personal obligations, willing to devote 60+ hours per week, etc, how would you go about training? Thanks!
