Airline Sponsored Career Track
ATP's airline alliances include regional airlines like CommutAir, Republic, and Envoy Air. Each of these airlines participate in airline sponsored career tracks for ATP graduates. Airline-Sponsored means that these airlines have evaluated the end to end pilot training solution offered by ATP, acknowledge the quality of training, and integrate their hiring processes with ATP's pilot pool.
Seniority is Everything
“Seniority is everything” expresses how important it is to enter the seniority system as quickly as possible. Your entire career's earnings depend on how quickly you get your seniority number. With a mandatory retirement at age 65, the best way to maximize your earnings and advancement is to get hired at the earliest opportunity. Nobody understands this better than ATP, where our management team is led by airline pilots who retired from careers with FedEx and American Airlines.
ATP helps you reach airline employment faster than any other flight training option, and does so by helping you become a paid flight instructor faster. ATP's Airline Career Pilot Program is the most cost- and time-efficient route to attaining flight instructor certificates.
To best evaluate your flight training options, you need to understand how airline seniority works, why it's so important, and how it affects your lifetime earnings and quality-of-life throughout your career.
Flight Instructing to Meet Airline Transport Pilot Certificate Minimums
Flight instructing is some of the best experience any pilot can gain. It provides a strong foundation on which to build in airline new hire training. Plus, the airlines appreciate the pilot in command and aeronautical decision making skills that are part of daily life as a flight instructor.
Upon graduating from the Airline Career Pilot Program, you will have the certification and ratings you need to start flying as a flight instructor and gain the flight time required by airlines. With your single-engine, instrument, and multi-engine instructor ratings, you will be amongst the most competitive and qualified as you advanced in your career.
As you work as a flight instructor, you will build relationships that last a lifetime. You will become a part of a network of highly successful professional aviators who will offer great connections later in your career. ATP instructors become part of the largest Alumni Network of any flight training organization in the United States, which will benefit them throughout their careers.
