ATP-CTP Program

in 8 days including written test

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 61-138.

 

This course gives a commercial multi-engine pilot, who is used to flying a Beechcraft Duchess or Piper Navajo, the opportunity to train to fly a passenger airliner, and potentially work for a major carrier.

What our customers say

As I fly an airline jet on a Part 121 carrier here in Brazil, the training doesn’t bring anything really new to me. Even our regulations in Brazil are really similar to the ones in the US. Still, what I really liked about the training was having both David and Musa as instructors. They have different styles and specifics they like to emphasize more, which is great. The experience they have to share is the most valuable asset for every pilot in class. For those who are not familiar with the airline world, the courseware is in great size and well structured. Oh, and by the way, Sheppard Air is the best recommendation. I got 88% on the FAA Written and I didn’t even study that much.

They work so hard to accommodate your schedule. The talented instructors are first class. I attended the ATP/CTP course. I would recommend this to anyone, they have full access to the most modern advanced simulator in the country.

Minimum Requirements to Complete ATP-CTP Course

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.

The course includes 30 hours of ground school and 10 hours of Full Flight Simulator. We are using the most modern and advanced simulator A320-200 CAE XR7000.

Even though the ATP-CTP course is required by candidates with a commercial pilot license, it is also acceptable for a candidate to hold a private pilot certificate to register. Upon successful completion of the class, the candidate will receive a certificate valid for five years at which time he is able to take the ATP written exam.

If you don’t have CPL license yet, but you wish to be an Airline Pilot – welcome to our flight school, www.skyeagle.aero.
