Steps to Enrollment
Step 1: 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. 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.
Step 2: Start Your Financing Application
If you need help funding your flight training, ATP is ready to assist. Start a financing application to find out what flight training loans are available – absolutely no obligation.
Step 3: Fly with ATP for Your Intro Training Flight
(Only Required if Starting from Zero Time)
Next, 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. You can get started today, by completing the Intro Training Flight Online Learning Module and then give us a call at 904-595-7950 to schedule your flight at one of our 38 training centers nationwide.
The Intro Training Flight costs $150, which you will pay by credit card over the phone when you schedule.
Step 4: Schedule Your Start Date
Finally, 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.
