PlaneSense Hosts Recruiting Event at ATP Daytona Beach
November 13, 2014
We have been very fortunate to hire some of [ATP’s] personnel and understand firsthand the quality of their programs and strength of their pilots when operating in a corporate pilot environment.
With 13 formal letters of agreement, regional airlines and corporate operators have long since recognized the quality of airline-oriented flight training and multi-engine experience ATP students receive in the Airline Career Pilot Program. In the last 12 months alone, more than 400 ATP graduates were hired by airlines — giving ATP the highest ratio of airline placements to students of any other flight school, college, or academy.
As demand continues to increase for qualified, professional pilots, airlines have selected ATP as a preferred training provider to build their pilot pipelines with the best training in the fastest time frame possible. Leveraging the power of PilotPool.com and recruiting earlier in the flight training process, airlines conduct monthly onsite interviews at ATP training centers, which have contributed to more than 390 ATP students and instructors receiving conditional offers of employment from one or more airline.
Most recently, PlaneSense hosted a recruiting event at the Daytona Beach, FL training center, interviewing ATP graduates to help meet the increasing need for qualified commercial pilots required by their recently opened Orlando area pilot base. Of the applicants, fifteen will be extended offers to join the carrier’s 2015 training program.
We could not have accomplished our goals, nor find the high quality corporate pilots we need, without the partnership of the professionals at Airline Transport Professionals [ATP].
Acknowledging the quality of training and experience ATP students receive, Ray Torres, Vice President of Flight Operations, stated “[w]e have been very fortunate to hire some of [ATP’s] personnel and understand firsthand the quality of their programs and strength of their pilots when operating in a corporate pilot environment.” He went on to conclude that "it was no surprise that of the successful interviews, there are several current ATP instructors that were offered a candidate seat with us next year.”
