DPE Travel Program

If you’d like more information about our travel program, please contact ATP's Flight Checks Department at: [email protected] or (904) 595-7927.

Aviation is growing rapidly and the need for checkrides nationwide is expanding. ATP Flight School has experienced growth at all of our 38 training centers nationwide resulting in a significant number of checkrides needed for our students.

In an effort to help students achieve their certification goals in a timely matter, we have implemented an opportunity for DPE’s to travel to training centers where checkride demand exceeds checkride availability. We have created an efficient system that maximizes DPE availability for students and reduces the number of checkride slots that go unused to nearly zero, thus maximizing your valuable time.

If you currently work with us, thank you, and we appreciate the availability you provide. If you haven’t worked with us, or if you want to do more, please consider the opportunity to travel and assist our students.

Benefits of Working with ATP

Those that have provided practical tests to ATP students know the many benefits of working with ATP Flight School, and they include:

  • Newer aircraft, we added over 169 brand new Cessna 172s and Piper Archers in the last 5 years and have many more on order
  • Well maintained aircraft
  • Proven training syllabus designed to provide quality and standardized applicants that are endorsed well before the scheduled checkride
  • A Flight Checks Department whose sole purpose is to foster a positive checkride experience for DPE’s, Students, and ATP, and to provide support through industry professionals if problems arise with logistics or if training improvements are needed

Benefits of the Travel Program

  • ATP can coordinate and pay for travel, including airfare, hotel, and rental car for the duration of the trip
  • A direct point of contact at ATP HQ and at the local Training Center
  • Two or more checkrides scheduled per day for three or more consecutive days to maximize DPE availability for students and provide a great return on your investment of time
  • A variety of checkrides from all stages of training
  • Assurance that in the unforeseen cancelation of a checkride due to instructor or student deficiencies, ATP will compensate you for your time at the local market checkride rate
  • A personal DPE calendar link that provides applicant IACRA/DMS information in real-time

We appreciate what you do for aviation and look forward to our continued or new working relationship. If you’d like more information about our travel program please contact the flight checks department at ATP [email protected] or (904) 595-7927.

  • ATP Jets
  • ATP Admin Support

The ATP program is the best possible choice when pursuing a professional pilot career. Having been on the airline side now, I have come to appreciate ATP’s standardization and curriculum even more than just a high standard for safe and effective training.
