“After the recent completion of your Airline Career Pilot Program at the Fort Lauderdale International and Fort Lauderdale Executive Airport facilities, I just wanted to let you and your staff know that it was an experience like no other. The professionalism and patience of my flight instructor and the class are very beneficial for a student whom is serious about flying.
As per your equipment, housing and course outline, just wanted to emphasize that it is AWESOME! I would definitely recommend ATP to other fellow pilots whom wish to obtain their ratings with a professional institution like yours.
Keep up the Excellent Work!”
