What Others Have to Say

Fly with ATP and you will see why we offer the best training experience in general aviation.

I couldn't have asked for a better [admissions] flight. My ATP Instructor has provided nothing short of the most wonderful learning experience I've had in my entire life.

Knowledgeable, attentive and supportive, he was the best instructor I could ever hope for. I really appreciate the time he spent (very patiently and encouragingly) answering all my questions. The flight was fun, full of learning tidbits and safe. Absolute exhilaration!

I am truly pleased with my first ever flying experience. Thanks so much!

Yesterday I had [an admissions] flight at ATP Trenton, NJ and had a wonderful and eye opening experience. I arrived a bit early and was introduced to your instructors Adam and Jeff. Adam did a great job and spent extra time with me making sure that every one of my many questions and concerns were answered and explained. He gave me a tour of the training facility and introduced me to current students and the examiner. The flight in the Seminole was exciting, educating, and I enjoyed it very much. I can see from the facility and instructors the quality and professionalism that ATP offers their students. Thank you for the experience.

Rest assured, what I think about the school and the atmosphere is phenomenal! My first day started off with some advising and counseling from one of the instructors, Jeff Schulz. He was very helpful in answering my questions and advising me of what to do next. After that we took [an Admissions Flight] and shortly after, I already new what I wanted to do for my career. I recently graduated from Nevada State College with a Business Administration Degree and although its a good degree to have, I felt like I wasn't somehow making a difference in my life. I new I wanted to fly since as long as I can remember and this year decided to follow my heart and passion of flying. I am glad I found ATP and all it has to offer for my career choice.
