ATP Accepts Delivery of Five ELITE RC-1 Training Systems
Jacksonville Beach, FL — May 30, 2008
Airline Transport Professionals (ATP) today announced the delivery of five new ELITE RC-1 Training Systems. The RC-1 system is a full-featured Advanced Aviation Training Device (AATD) with life-size, high-resolution instruments, cockpit enclosure and an external visual system with a large-screen display. Each RC-1 includes simple, complex and twin-engine aircraft modules with associated three and six-lever throttle quadrants. ATP elected to add the option of Garmin GNS 430 GPS which will increase the quality of the training experience in the RC-1. The AATDs will be located at ATP’s training centers in Ft. Lauderdale, FL, Panama City, FL, Arlington, TX, Addison, TX and Raleigh-Durham, NC.
ATP currently delivers more pilots to the regional airlines than any other single flight school, college, or academy. The company is successful through the efficient immersion of students in multi-engine airline-style flight training over a short time frame. The benefit for the customer is the best training on the market at an extremely competitive price. Offering a great value in flight simulation today, the RC-1 will aid the company in meeting its strategic goals.
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 with 10 leading regional airlines 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 20 locations nationwide.
