Fixed Cost Pricing Airline Career Pilot Program

ATP provides up-front, fixed cost pricing in a way that differentiates us from most other flight schools and academies. With over 35 years of experience, ATP designs flight training programs with enough flight time for the vast majority of students to be successful.

ATP never quotes prices based on unrealistic minimum flight time requirements. If you require extra training above and beyond what's included in your curriculum, we will first try to reallocate flight time from other parts of the syllabus before offering you extra flight training at an additional cost.

Because everyone's piloting skills are different, we can't guarantee that you won't need additional training and incur some additional expense. But rest assured that ATP has built a strong reputation for meeting our commitments, and providing highly effective flight training programs.

Price Guarantee

ATP guarantees the fixed cost quoted to you at the time of scheduling or at the time of making your first payment to reserve your class date. Even if our advertised prices increase between the time you schedule and the time your training starts, you will receive the price originally quoted.
