Fixed Cost Pricing Notes

Examiners’ fees of approximately $4,200 to $4,800 are not included. Logged flight times may vary slightly due to flight check times and other considerations.

More About Your Training

Airline Career Pilot Program flight training gets you the most qualifications (multi-engine flight time) in the best complex multi-engine aircraft, with the best airline-oriented flight training. You can receive the same training in either our Fast Track or Self-Paced curriculum.

Fast Track — Recommended

ATP’s FAST TRACK Airline Career Pilot Program is the most efficient commercial pilot training you can receive. The total-immersion training maximizes your knowledge and skill retention, while putting you on the fast track to start earning income in your new career. Only Fast Track students are eligible for a guaranteed instructor job, and an on-site interview with Republic Airways during training.

Self-Paced

ATP’s SELF-PACED Airline Career Pilot Program provides the same quality instruction in the same aircraft. A flexible training schedule accommodates your needs as a full-time college student or working professional. Devote at least ten days per month to your training, and within 12 months or less you can complete the Airline Career Pilot Program.

Bottom Line

ATP sets the industry standard for airline pilot training with all the aircraft resources and airline connections you need for your fast track to the airlines.

The multi-engine experience gained in ATP’s Airline Career Pilot Program will get you more career opportunities than possible through any other flight school, FBO or academy. The higher level of qualifications this program provides is the first step in setting you apart from your peers.

Airline-Sponsored Career Track

Demand for airline pilots and ATP graduates is soaring, with the "1500 hour rule" and retirements at the majors. Airlines have selected ATP as a preferred training provider to build their pilot pipelines with the best training in the fastest time frame possible.

Agreement with Republic Airlines

ATP has entered into an agreement with Republic Airlines in which Republic Airlines will conduct HR interviews and offer conditional offers of employment (COEs) to ATP students and instructors as early as the commercial phase of training in the Airline Career Pilot Program. Successful applicants will receive a COE, plus a guaranteed instructor job with ATP to build flight experience.

The conditions of the offer are that upon completion of the Airline Career Pilot Program, you continue to build flight experience as a flight instructor, until you reach 1500 hours of total time, receive ATP's recommendation, and complete the Regional Jet Standards Certification Program. Once these requirements are met, no further technical or HR interview will be required, as long there are no changes to your driving record / background check. You will simply report to Republic for new hire training in the 70-110 seat E170/175, the 74 seat Q400, or the E135/140/145.

The COEs are non-binding to the pilot, which means they do not obligate you to fly for Republic. If you later decide you want to fly for another airline, there will be no repercussions. But you get the advantage of a commitment from Republic to schedule you for a class date upon reaching minimums.

What Others Have to Say

Testimonials

Airline Career Pilot Program graduates are being hired by the airlines
Throughout my training I was both challenged and guided into being a professional pilot. Starting from a private pilot and then finally evolving into a CFI was a great feeling of empowerment. I knew that ATP was my choice of flight schools since it was recommended to me by fellow students of yours who are now successful Gulfstream pilots, for a major charter company. My cross country experience flew me into the airports of Jacksonville, Atlanta, Trenton, Richmond, Tennessee, and many others. With the proper skills from ATP I was able to fly with confidence. I will recommend the ATP program to aspiring pilots of any level who want to get there ratings and receive the best training available. ”
