Airline Transport Pilot (ATP) Certificate

Thanks for the info, gents.

Like everyone else, I was impressed with the group out at Downtown Aviation in Memphis. Great bunch of people and a very optimized program. It's pretty remarkable that they can take a guy with zero experience in light twins and prep him for a legitimate FAA checkride in one day. Price of less than $2K out the door can't be beat either.

I just knocked mine out with Chennault Flying Services in North Las Vegas.  Outstanding, can't say enough about it.  The owner is an Eagle dude who is very cool and big picture.  I did the practical in 2 days.  A dude from Luke drove up, he flew first, I watched from the backseat, we swapped and repeated for 2 flights actually flying the Beach 95, then we did our check rides with Retz the next day (flew with one of his CFI's who was a touchdown the first day).  All in all very painless and big picture for a total of $3,700 including the check ride.  I did the ATP CTP with PanAm flight school in Henderson, which was $3,900.  

 

Give me a PM if you'd like Retz's contact info.  Total touchdown.  You can also find the company on FaceBook.

Can you still be competitive for an airline job with a R-ATP? 

If by airline you mean regional airline, then yes.

As said, not at a "career" airline, no.

I've read the bad reviews but has anyone had any good experiences with accessible aviation in Columbus? I paid over a year ago before I got hit with a deployment and just wondering if it would be too risky? I would rather spend a little more money to ensure I'm enrolling into a creditable program then to travel all the way to Columbus and walk away empty handed. Thoughts?

One of the few upsides .... the DPE is great and is also a United Captain and will write you a pretty damn good recommendation.

For a second I thought you said "pretty darn good," wouldn't want that recommendation.
