What is a Training Center Premium?Airline Career Pilot Program

ATP offers the Airline Career Pilot Program at a fixed cost across 79 nationwide training centers. Operating expenses, such as fuel, can vary widely across the nation, and in select states, a training center premium is added to the price of the Airline Career Pilot Program.

State Training Center Premium
CA, MA, NY Additional $3,000
CT, MD, NJ, OR, WA, DC Area Additional $2,000
All Other States $0

Training center premiums follow ATP's fixed-cost pricing model and guarantee. If you desire to train at a location that has a training center premium, this amount will be billed according to ATP's multiple-disbursement payment schedule and will not increase or change during your training.

A training center premium is not a fuel surcharge, and locations with a training center premium are still subject to ATP's fuel surcharge policy.
