CFI Academy Exclusive to the Airline Career Pilot Program
For six weeks, Airline Career Pilot Program students attend CFI Academy to become Certificated Flight Instructors (CFI). Training starts at home with two weeks of instructor-led interactive virtual ground school. Students then travel to one of ATP's CFI Academy locations. Here commercial pilots learn the fundamentals of instruction from ATP's senior instructor group. Students prepare for their flight instructor practical test at the academy with a combination of online learning, group study, and flight lessons.
Becoming a CFI allows you to begin earning an income in your new career as a pilot while you gain the flight experience needed to meet airline minimums.
