CFI Academy Exclusive to the Airline Career Pilot Program
Five weeks of the Airline Career Pilot Program are spent at CFI Academy, where students train to become Certificated Flight Instructors (CFI). While at the academy, commercial pilots learn the fundamentals of instruction from ATP's senior instructor group and hone their ability to effectively teach and communicate the knowledge and experience they have attained throughout the program.
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. Airline Career Pilot Program graduates are guaranteed a paid instructor job with ATP, earning up to $42,000 annually with airline tuition reimbursement.
ATP Instructors Nationally Recognized by AOPA
The Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association (AOPA) consistently award ATP CFIs with “Distinguished Flight Instructor” awards and the recognition of being “Best Flight Instructor in Region” during the annual Flight Training Experience Awards.
