neither a captain nor an f/o

Dear all ,

Heres the lowdown, need advice.

first the constants : self sponsored TR.
now the variables : A320 or ATR

320 market players : air india- vistara-indigo-go air - air asia

ATR : indigo - alliance air- trujet

Indigo is the strongest contender in terms of acquiring new aircraft and making profits, Air India is in the doldrums with the govt failing to disinvest the airline. GO Air, Air Asia and Vistara are making their footprint with positive futures,especially Go Air.

Pax growth in Asia Pacific is set to expand, India being second after China,overtaking the UK. This growth will be supplemented by inducting new aircraft which will require more personnel. Great news for a jobless bloke such as me. However, the dilemma is between the 320 and the ATR. Both have jobs, the former with stiffer competition. Consider this a desperate call to those who've been here before me. What did you choose and why? Is the Airbus really a laptop with wings? Is the ATR really that taxing to fly? Jets>T/P's in the real world. Will this fancy with wanting to handle a plane as opposed to monitoring be short lived?
