Steps to Enrollment Enroll in the Airline Career Pilot Program
Fly with ATP for Your Intro Training Flight
We invite you to visit an ATP Flight Training Center for an in-person look at what exciting training awaits you. You will fly either the single engine Cessna 172 or Piper Archer. This will be a great opportunity for you to find out what to expect in training.
If you are starting the Airline Career Pilot Program from Zero Time, successful completion of an Introductory Training Flight with ATP is required prior to scheduling.
The Intro Training Flight costs $150, which you will pay by credit card over the phone when you schedule.
Obtain FAA First Class Medical Certificate
Apply for a first class medical certificate through a special doctor called an Aeromedical Examiner (AME). This physical is required by all airlines and is the first step in enrolling in the Airline Career Pilot Program.
- First, complete the initial portion of the application through FAA MedXpress. (Important: Use your full name on the application; matching your Passport and/or your Birth Certificate)
- Next, locate an AME near you at faa.gov/pilots/amelocator. You will need to call the doctors office and schedule an appointment for a FAA First Class Medical.
Schedule Your Start Date
Call ATP Admissions at 904-595-7950 and reserve your class date. ATP requires a $995 unconditionally non-refundable and non-transferable payment to reserve your class date.
Immediately after scheduling your class date, you will receive access to your student extranet and iPad courseware. Review our iPad courseware page for more information.
As your Airline Career Pilot Program class date approaches, ATP’s team of instructors will stay in touch, and be available seven days a week to help you prepare.
