ATP-CTP Programin 5-6 days

Purpose of the ATP-CTP Course

On August 1, 2010, President Obama signed a bill that introduced the ATP-CTP training course. This course was designed to bridge the knowledge gap between the level of a 250-hour commercial pilot and a 1500-hour airline pilot. This knowledge gap in aviation education has proven fatal, such as the Colgan Air disaster near Buffalo in 2009. This accident sparked the FAA to mandate changes in the requirements for airline pilots. In January 2014, all United States carriers began to hire pilots with a minimum flight time of 1500 hours. These new hires were also required to hold a multi-engine airline pilot certificate, as well as having the ATP-CTP course successfully completed.

The ATP-CTP course is a mandatory pre-requisite in order to take the ATP written exam. This requirement only applies to multi-engine pilots. The ATP-CTP course is not required if obtaining the ATP Single Engine Certificate. Pilots that are ATP rated in foreign countries still need to complete the entire course and follow the syllabus, which is strictly regulated by the FAA under AC 61-138A.

 

The cost of the written test is NOT included in our price, this is a separate provider (PSI) but we have a testing facility at our premises. You should schedule your written test using special website: https://faa.psiexams.com/faa/login. Create the account and follow instructions.

 

This course gives a commercial multi-engine pilot, who is used to flying a small airplanes or light twins, the opportunity to train to fly a passenger airliner, and potentially work for a major carrier part 121 or air operator part 135.

F.A.Q.

1. What is the refund policy?

Cancellation policies and corresponding refunds are as follows:
  • Cancellation more than 31 days before the class: 100% refund.
  • Cancellation between 30 and 15 days before the class: 50% refund.
  • Cancellation within 15 days or less before the class: No refund will be provided.

2. Is TSA security clearance required for Non-US citizens?

Yes, foreign nationals are required to obtain TSA approval to study in the U.S. We provide full support to our prospective students for obtaining TSA approval for the ATP-CTP course at ATP.Academy.

3. What does the ATP-CTP course consist of and how long is it?

The ATP CTP course consists of theoretical and practical training. It includes 30 hours of theory and 10 hours of practical training, including 4 hours of flight training device training and 6 hours of full flight simulator training. The course is taught by the experienced ex-airline pilots and ATP.Academy instructors.

4. Does ATP-CTP result in a type rating?

No, it only provides a “ticket” to take a written test for the ATP Multi Engine License. However, it in itself is not a type rating without an exam or checkride after ATP-CTP. It's an informative course required by the Federal Aviation Regulations.

5. Are there preparation materials for ATP CTP?

No, you don't need special materials to prepare for the ATP-CTP course. There is no need to prepare in advance, because ATP.Academy will provide you with all the necessary information and materials for theoretical preparation and practical training.

6. Does ATP-CTP prepare me for the ATP written exam?

No, this course is designed to cover the gap between inexperienced commercial pilots who are seeking to boost their qualifications to airline level. There are a number of online applications that aid in preparation for the written test. We will provide you with links to these applications, so you can take the test on your own and will also advise on the test-taking process.

7. How long are written exam results valid?

The ATP-CTP certificate is valid indefinitely. The written test results are valid for up to 60 months.

8. Is ATP-CTP a requirement to take the ATP single engine written test?

No, ATP-CTP is not required for ATP Single Engine.

9. What do I receive as confirmation of ATP-CTP completion?

You will receive a certificate of ATP-CTP course completion on an FAA-approved form. The certificate serves as admission to the ATP ME written test.

10. Does the ATP-CTP graduation certificate expire?

No. The ATP-CTP certificate is valid indefinitely.

11. How much to get FAA ATP based on my ICAO ATP?

The total price is combined from the ATP-CTP course cost + cost of your ATP course and checkride. As you can see from this page you have a choice between "non-type ATP" and "ATP + type rating". The approximate price depending on your personal case will be:  

  1. NON-type ATP: $3,999 (ATP-CTP) + $175 (written test) + $4,000 (8 hours of ME training on BE76) + $1,000 (checkride  and aircraft rental) = $9,174
  2. ATP with Type-rating A320 (initial): $3,999 (ATP-CTP) + $175 (written test) + $15,000 (A320 Initial + checkride) = $19,174
  3. ATP with Type-rating A320 (reduced, if you have A320 in ICAO license): $3,999 (ATP-CTP) + $175 (written test) + $8,500 (A320 Reduced + checkride) = $12,674
  You can check our Packages to get a better price! P.S. Prices are subject to change! Verify current prices with our representative.

12. I currently have a EASA CPL ME IR ATPL frozen license. I’m interested in converting my license in FAA.

There are no direct converting from EASA CPL to FAA CPL. You have 2 options, depending on the number of flight hours you have now:

  1. You can convert your EASA CPL to FAA PPL and then you need to add Instrument rating (training + written test + Checkride) and CPL (ME or SE or Both) - the same procedure (training + written test + Checkride). You can find more info about validation here: http://skyeagle.aero/add_services/validation_faa/ And all other courses (Instrument rating and Commercial license) available at SkyEagle Aviation Academy. And here: http://skyeagle.aero/2017/05/04/faq-for-foreign-atp-pilots/
  1. If you qualified for FAA ATP (more than 1500 hours total and meet other requirements) then you have another option - straight to FAA ATPL.
Information about this option is here: https://atp.academy/atp/  

13. Do I need to validate my foreign license for ATP-CTP class?

No, it's not a requirement for the course. But you need to have a Letter of Verification before your ATP checkride.

14. When next ATP-CTP class will start?

We have great news for you - our ATP-CTP class starts every Monday throughout 2024! To check the schedule, please visit this webpage: https://atp.academy/upcoming-schedule/
