ATP Opens Nashville & Scottsdale Training Centers
Nashville, TN & Scottsdale, AZ – May 9, 2011
Today ATP announced that its two newest flight training centers are now open in Nashville at Smyrna Airport (KMQY) and in Phoenix at Scottsdale Airport (KSDL). Both locations offer ATP’s Airline Career Pilot Program. This advanced flight training program is the best in career pilot training. ATP students get the competitive edge with airline-oriented flight training at a fixed cost in the shortest time frame. They receive instruction from the most qualified instructors and proudly fly the world's largest multi-engine fleet coast-to-coast in a scheduled, monitored, airline-style environment using airline-standard Jeppesen IFR charts and approach plates.
“Within just two months of opening Scottsdale, 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 now operates 25 total flight training facilities to meet this increasing need for airline-ready pilots.
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 7,500 hours to provide more than 300 FAA pilot certifications each month at 25 locations nationwide.
