ATP Opens Chicago & New York Training Centers

JACKSONVILLE, FL — May 10, 2010

ATP today announced that its two newest flight training centers are now open in Chicago at DuPage Airport (KDPA) and New York at Islip – Long Island Airport (KISP).

Both locations offer flight training from Private Pilot thru Instrument Rating and Airline Career Pilot Program in a fleet of Piper Seminoles, Diamond DA40s, Cessna 172s and Frasca FTDs. As ATP begins accepting delivery of its Diamond D-JETs, ATP expects to offer D-JET training at both locations.

“Within just two months of opening New York, we’re proud to have already graduated a class of Private Pilots, and completed many add-on ratings and Airline Transport Pilot certificates,” said Jim Koziarski, ATP’s Vice President of Flight Operations. “As hiring gradually increases, more pilots are seeking their multi-engine ratings, CFI ratings and Airline Transport Pilot certificates to be competitive.”

ATP opened four new locations in 2009 at Charlotte, Indianapolis, San Diego, and Tampa. More locations planned for 2010, and remain to be announced.

In 1984 ATP pioneered cost-efficient, accelerated, multi-engine flight training with an emphasis on pilot career development. Today, ATP’s Airline Training Programs prepare graduates for airline pilot and corporate pilot careers with nationwide flight experience in the largest, multi-engine training fleet. Advanced jet training transitions these pilots from light twins to modern regional jets in CRJ-200 flight training devices. With thousands of graduates who have completed airline training on time and on budget, airlines come to ATP first to meet their demand for pilots. ATP flies over 6,000 hours to provide more than 300 FAA pilot certifications each month at 24 locations nationwide.
