“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.”
“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. ”
Congratulations to these ATP graduates who have achieved the next step in their professional pilot careers.
