ATP Provides Students with Specialized Training Using Airline-Standard Jeppesen Charts
JACKSONVILLE, Florida–October 23, 2006
“Pilots who have used NOS charts in training often struggle to make the transition to Jeppesen charts during airline ground school...we’re glad to see ATP using them from the beginning of instrument training ”
Airline Transport Professionals (ATP) is now providing its students with Jeppesen® Navigational charts for their Instrument training and subsequent nationwide multi-engine cross-country flight experience. Students receive the Jeppesen charts at no additional cost. ATP’s program managers, all of whom have major airline and regional airline experience, know that using airline-standard Jeppesen charts further ensures that ATP is training the most qualified future professional pilots.
“Pilots who have used NOS charts in training often struggle to make the transition to Jeppesen charts during airline ground school. Considering that all 121 airlines use Jeppesen charts, we’re glad to see ATP using them from the beginning of instrument training,” says Terry Mefford, Chief Pilot of Pinnacle Airlines, Inc., a Northwest Airlink carrier.
The Jeppesen’s Inflight Training Service (ITS) package that ATP is providing its students includes a four-month subscription, provided exclusively to pilots preparing for their instrument rating. ATP is the only flight training school to include Jeppesen’s product at no additional cost to students. ATP students will receive revisions every 14 days. ATP believes in preparing its students for airline hiring, and Jeppesen’s ITS offers the perfect way for ATP students to maximize the value of their instrument training and multi-engine IFR cross-country experience.
In 1984 ATP pioneered accelerated, professional multi-engine flight training with an emphasis on pilot career development. Today ATP’s Airline Training Programs prepare pilots for airline careers with nationwide flying experience in multi-engine aircraft. Airline hiring partnership letters recognize the value of this experience by offering ATP pilots specially reduced flight time minimums for airline employment, enabling pilots to reach their career goals faster. ATP flies over 5,000 hours and provides more than 300 FAA pilot certifications each month at 22 locations nationwide.
