Endeavor Air

ATP Flight School and Endeavor Air have established a partnership and mutual commitment to the development of professional pilots through designating ATP an Endeavor Air Student To Endeavor Pilot (STEP) Program Academy Partner.

ATP provides students with the most efficient path to a successful airline pilot career through quality airline-oriented flight training, from zero experience through an airline pilot job.

Students and instructors that sign up for the STEP Program are able to receive one-on-one guidance from Endeavor recruiters and attend professional development presentations. Selected pilots are eligible for the opportunity to complete a First Officer interview 12 months before obtaining ATP minimums.

“Our goal with the STEP Program is to help pilots prepare for a successful career in the airline industry,” said Ginny Zarras, Director, Talent Acquisition and Development, Endeavor Air. “We are excited to launch STEP at ATP and partner with them to engage, encourage, and educate the next generation of pilots.”
