“I would like to take this opportunity to thank you and the valuable ATP staff and instructors at Richmond for making my flight training experience very productive. I have found it very rewarding to go through the Airline Career Pilot Program. I gained aeronautical experience and knowledge that could not be matched by any other flight school, especially in the time frame promised. My instructors were extremely knowledgeable throughout the program and always willing to help.”
