Atlanta Flight School At Gwinnett County Airport, Briscoe Field (LZU)
About the Training Facility
ATP’s Atlanta location can be found in Lawrenceville, GA at the Gwinnett County Airport. This is the perfect airspace to facilitate the flight training in its renowned Airline Career Pilot Program.
The site boasts spacious classrooms, simulator bays and pilot sleep/shower quarters, along with 20,000 square feet of hangar space. In addition, ATP has installed and will operate its own fuel farm to keep costs as low as possible for professional pilot students. Gwinnett County Airport is an optimal fit for ATP, being outside the 30 NM veil of Atlanta’s busy Class B airspace. ATP students will enjoy the challenging towered environment of a Class D airport without the long waits for clearance.

“Hello, I recently completed the Private Pilot as well as the Airline Career Pilot Program with ATP at their Lawrenceville GA location and now am a commercially rated pilot and CFI. I started the program with zero hours and very little knowledge of aviation. Before deciding on ATP I did research and toured other schools and can say without a doubt I am proud and relieved that I chose ATP. Day after day I went to the LZU location ready and eager to learn something new and expand on my current knowledge and my instructors were always professional and intent on making me the best pilot possible. I give ATP my complete recommendation and can guarantee you that if you are willing to learn, the training you will receive at ATP will be second to none!”
