ATP Flight School - Atlanta LZU

Atlanta Flight School At Gwinnett County Airport, Briscoe Field (LZU)

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.
