Pilot Training / May 7, 2020

As an ATP student, gain access to quality modern aircraft, nationwide locations, and job placement assistance. ATP has the experience, resources, and airline relationships to take you from zero time to airline pilot in about two years — proven by thousands of graduates now flying for regional and major airlines.


With airline-oriented, total immersion training from day one, you will graduate from the Airline Career Pilot Program in 9 months (from zero time), earning your Commercial Multi-Engine pilot certificate with Certified Flight Instructor certificates.


After graduating the program, you receive a guaranteed Flight Instructor job with ATP, where you can earn up to $42, 000 annually with airline tuition reimbursement and gain the necessary flight experience to reach airline hiring minimums of 1500 hours.


During your time as a flight instructor, at 500 hours total flight time, you can begin earning at least $11, 000 in airline sponsored tuition reimbursement, if qualified.


After approximately 18 months as a flight instructor, you will be at airline minimums and ready to take the next step in your professional pilot career.

“It's rare to find something that's as good as advertised. I remember leafing through many flight magazines, always seeing ATP's glossy, full-page ads. They seemed promising, yet too good to be true. When I finally committed (I sold my home and used the profits), a few family members approached me, asking if I realized what I was doing. Looking back, I realize I had placed a bet - not just on ATP, but also on myself.

After the fact, my only regret is that I didn't do it sooner.

It's been a true honor to work under and alongside you all. ATP isn't just the biggest flight school around, it's also the best…you have facilitated an atmosphere where people can literally make dreams become reality. How cool is that?!

Thank you all for everything you've done and continue to do. While in the airlines, I'll continue to sing praise of ATP. To be dedicated to something you love is a gift most will never receive, and I know I'm fortunate to do so.”

“I did all my pilot training with ATP. I started from zero time in November 2012 and started working for ATP as a CFI in June of the following year… I reached the magic 1500 after thirteen months of instructing and then I got right on with SkyWest. I am now approaching a year with them and life continues to improve… I want to express my thanks to you and to the entire crew at ATP because although you have to earn every bit of what you accomplish, ATP provided me with the tools I needed to go from zero time to airline pilot in just 21 months.”
