When do you need the Airline Transport Pilot License or Rating?: To act as PIC on a Turbojet aircraft under Part 121 (airlines) or Part 135 (Charter). However, most airlines score resumes electronically before a person looks at them. The more ratings you have, the higher you will be in the stack!
Why would I need an ATP Single Engine Land (SEL): If you are a military pilot and went through Tweets you may not have any SEL License or just the Private from Flight Screening. To fly SEL for pay you will need at least a Commercial SEL License. The ATP is a higher Rating than Commercial and it is an easier checkride to prepare for as it is an instrument check doing the same approaches you just did for the multi ATP. The Commercial SEL requires ground reference maneuvers and Lazy Eights and Chandelles, not sutied for an accelerated checkout.
Can military pilots use their current military flight physical instead of an FAA Class III medical?: Yes, if you are CURRENTLY assigned to flight duties.
What if I do self study for the written test instead of doing the test prep with you? If you show up with the written test complete, you can go right in to flight training. If you did the study, you can test with us for the standard test fee of $150. We have had several students who purchased the self study on-line or books but could not get the study done on their own and have still paid to do the test prep with us. If you do the prep with us, you know you will get it done in two days.
How many flying hours do I need to get my ATP License?: The total number of flight hours (including simulator time) is 1500. Not all of that needs to be Pilot in Command.
What Flight Physical do I need to use my GI BIll benefits?: The VA requires an FAA Class I physical to take the ATP License flight check in an aircraft.
What additional expenses will I have to pay?: The tuition covers specified nights lodging, examiner's fees, charts, headsets etc. You should not have any additional fees when you get here. You may purchase additional training time but few if any of our students have exercised this option.
Can I use my GI Bill Benefits to get my ATP with Accessible Aviation?: Yes, you may use either the MGIB or the Post 911 GI Bill.
What do I need to study before I arrive for training?: We will send you a study guide with study material. The study material includes aircraft systems, checkride profiles, a review of Part 91 and pertinent FARs and the PTS. You should review the study material before you get here work the sample questions. We will review the info with you and fill in the gaps in your knowledge.

Listen to our graduates:
After an exhaustive search on the Internet and after talking to my friends around the military, I decided to go train to with Accessible Aviation in Columbus, MS. This was quite simply the best career decision I have ever made. After years of flying heavy military tanker aircraft (KC-135's) I was a bit uneasy with the idea of taking a check ride in a light twin. The staff at Accessible had a streamlined program tailored specifically to my needs and led me through the entire process with confidence and ease. The combination of computer prep, videos, memory aids and live ground instruction was the key to my near flawless results on both FAA written tests. Accessible Aviation's “Train-To-Pass” guarantee is second to none. Their proven track record is a direct result of Carl's policy of making sure you are ready for your FAA check ride. In less than 6 days I was able to complete my ATP written, ATP check ride and my FE Written with a 99%. The icing on the cake was that my VA benefits covered the majority of my training costs. Overall, my training at Accessible Aviation was top notch! Jason D, NH Air Guard
“Carl and Accessible get the job done quickly and as painless as possible. My goal was to spend minimum time away from home and we accomplished that—did the ATP written, the ATP and the FE written in less than 6 days! Brad, the check pilot was especially understanding and accommodating to me being a military pilot. Both Brad and Carl catered to my style of flying and understood my background. I highly recommend Accessible.” USAF KC-10 Pilot Travis AFB Ca.
