ATP is your fast track airline career solution from zero time to 1,500 hours — earn tuition reimbursement and financial assistance sponsored by ATP's regional airline partners.
What is Airline Sponsored Pilot Training? Airline sponsored pilot training is made possible through participation in ATP's Tuition Reimbursement Program, where partner airlines make a financial contribution toward your flight training loan payment.
Airlines have selected ATP as a preferred training provider to build their pilot pipelines with the best training in the fastest time frame possible. Here’s how you can take advantage of this program:
With airline-oriented, total immersion training from day one, you will graduate from the Airline Career Pilot Program in 9 months (from zero time), earning your Commercial Multi-Engine pilot certificate with Certificated Flight Instructor certificates.
After graduating the program, you receive a guaranteed Flight Instructor job with ATP, where you can earn up to $42,000 annually with airline tuition reimbursement and gain the necessary flight experience to reach airline hiring minimums of 1,500 hours.
Between 300-500 hours total time, interview with your airline. If you accept the airline's offer, they make a financial contribution toward your loan payment and you make a commitment to fly for that airline. Payments are $5 per flight hour, based on how much flight time you acquire each month.
After about 18 months as a flight instructor and with approximately $5,000 in airline tuition reimbursement received, you start new hire class with your airline. $500 monthly payments continue to supplement first-year airline pay for at least 12 months.
