ATP quotes its fixed price based on realistic flight training requirements, not FAA minimum requirements.

  • Private Single & Instrument
  • Commercial Multi & Instrument
  • 255 Hours Logged Flight Time
    • 170 Hours Single-Engine Instruction & Flight Checks
    • 35 Hours Multi-Engine Instruction & Flight Checks
    • 50 Hours Simulator (FTD)

  • Aircraft Manuals, Training Syllabus & Checklists
  • All Pre- and Post-Flight Briefings

Credit for Private

If you already have your FAA Private Pilot Certificate from another flight school, you can receive credit and a discount.

Program specifications are subject to change, but not during your training program. See our fuel surcharge policy. Logged flight times may vary slightly due to flight check times and other considerations.
