zVo Posted October 20, 2013 Report Share Posted October 20, 2013 Hey all,I'm an Army aviator and am just shy of the hour requirements to qualify for the restricted ATP license. I am finishing my fixed-wing add-on ratings right now and prepping for to take a multi-engine ATP practical. My question is in regards to helicopters, however.What doors open up for aviators with a helicopter ATP (if any)?Aside from a higher level FAA certification potentially showing a greater mastery of the trade, what job opportunities are there? For airplane pilots, an ATP is a no-brainer (e.g. scheduled carriers) for increasing prospects. I suppose there may be something similar for rotary-wing pilots, but I haven't seen it as a hiring minimum anywhere. For those of you with ATPs, does your job require it?If not, do you believe it was beneficial to you acquiring your current job? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
