JACKSONVILLE, FL — July 21, 2011

141 ATP flight instructors and graduates from ATP Flight School have received pilot positions at leading regional and corporate airlines across the country in the past 7 months. ATP extends congratulations to all its successful graduates and is proud of their accomplishments.

American Eagle, one of the nation's largest regional airlines stated in a pilot outlook letter to ATP, dated February 2011, that they come to ATP for new hires because, "ATP graduates demonstrate above-average success in new-hire training and continue to be valuable employees and safe, professional aviators. We attribute the success of ATP pilot candidates to primarily three factors: Regional Jet Standards Certification training, CFI experience, and nationwide multi-engine experience."
