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.
