Which Option is Right for Me?

The Fast Track Airline Career Pilot Program is the fastest and best way to train to become a professional pilot and is for students who can dedicate full time to training.

The Flex Track Airline Career Pilot Program is for working professionals, college students, and anyone who needs schedule flexibility to continue working or attend classes while accomplishing the Airline Career Pilot Program.

Minimum Training Requirements

Students provide windows of availability at least 7 days in advance, and their assigned instructor and ATP Training Support will schedule training into that availability. ATP requires a minimum of 15 flight or FTD hours to be logged over a rolling 30-day period. If this is not met, a 2.0-hour+ proficiency flight must be conducted at published extra training rates.
