Students in ATP’s Airline Career Pilot Program at KAGC will train using airline-oriented procedures in ATP’s fleet of aircraft, including glass cockpit Piper Archers (pictured above).
ATP is taking delivery of 25 Archers this year, adding to its fleet of 450 aircraft nationwide.
ATP officials note the flight school has partnerships with more than 30 airlines and corporate operators, with some offering up to $17,500 in tuition reimbursement. Recently, ATP announced new partnerships with Frontier Airlines, Sun Country, and Avelo Airlines allowing ATP graduates and instructors to advance to an Airbus or Boeing first officer position at 1,500 hours of flight time.
“The airline industry is facing a shortage of pilots, presenting a tremendous opportunity for new pilots to establish a rewarding and lucrative career,” said Michael Arnold, director of marketing, ATP Flight School.
