FAA Track plus EASA Conversion
The same proven International Airline Career Pilot Program PLUS the necessary ground and flight training to convert an FAA CPL to EASA CPL with full privileges. Upon successful completion you will hold BOTH an FAA and EASA CPL in as little as 12-15 months.
ATP designed its International Airline Career Pilot Program with extra flight time built-in. This nearly eliminates extra charges for additional flight and ground training, which are common at other flight schools. ATP quotes its fixed price based on realistic flight training requirements, not FAA or EASA minimum requirements. However, due to fluctuations in currency exchange rates and variable costs in Europe ATP may need to alter the price of these programs to reflect price increases in Europe.
