I would like to know about recent experience of doing an FAA to JAR ATPL conversion in the USA vs UK/Europe.

I have about 15 000 hours TT with about 2 000 hours jet transport PIC, almost all on a Nigerian license. Now I am thinking about a conversion to a JAR ATPL but it's a bit speculative due to age (58) and work permit problems (US citizen with papers for work in Germany only) so that I don't want to invest mega-bucks in something that may not pan out. I am looking for something that is reasonably cheap while still providing reasonable quality.

Anyone here who can recommend this or that particular school for the ATPL writtens, I would be most grateful for that input.

I am not particularly interested in hearing about the lousy experiences, but just the positive ones.

Thanks!

Hey Chuks,

you can try these guys, I've heard some good things about their ground school courses from friends who have done it. Naples Air Center (http://www.nacgroundschool.com/courses.htm)

Failing that, I would personally think about Distance learning via Bristol, if u still wish to be working whilst converting. This has the advantage of being done at ur own pace. And then u show up for two weeks brush up and then exams. Price 1900 pounds. Not too sure how much Naples charge. But around the same(ish).
