ATP-CTP your biggest focus is the actual written you'll take at the end from one of the local testing centers. They should be telling you as much in class. Your homework every day is studying for the written. Use Sheppard Air and follow the study guidelines and you'll be fine. I spent maybe a total of two weeks running through the Shep Air and made it through the entire process once and got a 95. We had a lot of 99s and I think one 100 in our class. The classroom stuff for the CTP is basically going to teach you every possible way to crash an airplane. There's a lot of focus on CRM and an intro to high altitude aerodynamics, stall recovery, things like wind-shear and crosswind, and to give you a fundamental understanding of the knowledge the FAA requires to take your ATP written. The sims are great especially if you're a CRJ guy because by the end of the 10 hours you'll have a little bit extra familiarity with the panels and aircraft in general. It'll help with FTD and sims.

Super helpful. This answers a lot of questions so thank you for posting. I am headed that way this month so I will post if there is anything different in the past three months.

I thought that the interview material posted already was for when you have completed training and have the "guaranteed interview?"  Not the first one before you have any fixed wing time.  Thanks.

Can anyone please attest to this?  TY

There’s only one interview. It depends on your timeline when it happens. I did mine with almost no fixed wing training. It was after I attended an “Employee Center” visit and joined Pilot Pathways, but before I accepted the RTP money. Others had the majority of their training done but were finishing time building when they interviewed. You can actually join the pilot pathways program without an interview. You just have to have a successful interview before you can attend training.

Ok.  I was under the impression you have a first interview, not very in depth because you are going to get your fixed wing certs, to get your $20K.  Then when mins are met you have another, more in depth fixed wing knowledge, interview. 

So you're saying if I go to EC and interview I need to know everything even before starting a fixed wing transition/RTP?

At Army IPC right now so trying to spend my time appropriately, thanks!

If you schedule an interview for your EC it'll be the only interview you'll have to attend, and it'll probably cover the vast majority of the "gouge" you've seen on RTAG for SkyWest.

Ok thanks for the clarification.  

I figured that wouldn't be covered before you're exposed to it in RTP training.
