I just completed the Career Pilot Program. Had a fantastic experience. Great instruction, great flying and great people. I know the most difficult part for me was just selecting a school. Before I chose ATP, I visited virtually every school out there (everyone looks good on a website). I would be happy to answer any questions about my experience with the program. Once you get past the fluff, you'll realize that no matter where you go, your going to have to build time. The sooner and the cheaper you can get there, the better. ATP delivers. 90 days (actually less) multi-time (your gonna need) and real world flying for $35k. I've read here that the Citation flight is just for show and has no real value (no type rating). I'll tell you this, after busting my ass studying and flying all day you get can tired and lose focus. When you buckle in the right seat of the Citation (yea, you really fly it) it brings it all together and you remember why your here.
