Training & Refund Policy
Flight times are approximate. You will receive flight training from 8.0 to 8.5 hours, giving you approximately 10 hours once you complete the flight check. ATP allocates 1.5 to 2.0 hours for the flight check due to varying flight check times.
ATP’s training is provided as a complete program and not provided as training at an hourly “rate.”
If your program must be discontinued before you complete the flight check, you will be charged $500/Hr. Multi-Engine, $230/Hr. Single-Engine, $150/Hr. FTD. The remaining balance will be refunded.
In the unlikely event that you fail the flight check, you may obtain extra training as a one-hour-block program for $450. This will include flight training from 0.9 to 1.3 hours, ground school, pre- and post-flight briefings, and the use of the aircraft for the re-check (Examiner's fee is separate, and still applies).
ATP makes every effort to successfully complete your flight program within the allocated flight time. We have become the number one multi-engine flight training company by consistently achieving this goal.

“I recently obtained my multi-engine rating at ATP in Sacramento. I was very impressed with the program as I had never set foot in a multi-engine aircraft prior to this class. My instructor was very sharp and knowledgeable on top of having a great personality. We got along very well which assisted in learning and retaining all of the new material that was introduced to me.
I look forward to expanding my aviation opportunities with the help of ATP. Thank you!”
