Electronic Flight Bag with Jeppesen Charts

Airline pilots fly with electronic flight bags, including digital flight planning software and approach charts. You will, too, in the Airline Career Pilot Program. Not only will you use this same technology, but you'll learn to fly using industry-standard Jeppesen charts. Airlines use these best-in-class charts so exclusively that they even test pilots on them during their airline interviews.

By training with them, you'll be proficient and ready.

Pace of Training Total Immersion Flight Training

For pilots transitioning to the airlines, one of the most challenging aspects is the pace of training and required learning during airline indoctrination and type rating training. ATP prepares you for this through full immersion training. After graduating from the Airline Career Pilot Program, you will be accustomed to the pace at which airlines train. This is one of the many reasons why airlines trust ATP trained pilots and why graduates are so successful during airline training.

Advanced Ground & Full Flight Simulator Training

With the Airline Career Pilot Program, your training doesn't stop at earning your commercial pilot certificate. ATP includes advanced FAA-approved airline training to prepare you for your future career. With 30 hours of ground instruction taught by airline pilots, you'll expand your knowledge base with lessons on air carrier operations, CRM, leadership, and more. You'll conclude your training with experience in either a Boeing or Airbus full-motion flight simulator. Your end goal is to fly for the airlines, and ATP's airline-based curriculum will set you up for success.
