Now in its third year, Sporty’s is offering FAA-approved Airline Transport Pilot Certified Training Programs (ATP-CTP) from ABX Air, and registration is now open for classes starting in January and February, 2016. Because of the popularity of this course, additional capacity has been added throughout 2016.
“In addition to a superb training product, Sporty’s ATP-CTP course is popular because it’s one of the few courses tailored to those not associated with an airline or university program,” says Sporty’s Academy President Eric Radtke. “Sure, we have many students on their way to airline careers and other professional pilot positions, but they may not be connected to an organization providing the training.”
ATP-CTP provided by ABX Air takes place at the ABX Air Learning Center in Wilmington, Ohio. The six-day course includes four days of classroom instruction and the remainder of time in the simulator. ABX Air’s world class facility features modern, full-motion flight simulators and instruction from professional and experienced airline pilots utilizing the B767 and DC-9 platforms.
To be eligible for the ATP-CTP, applicants must possess a minimum of an FAA Private Pilot Certification. At course completion an ATP-CTP completion certificate is provided that is then required to take the FAA knowledge test for multiengine ATP. ATP knowledge test results are now valid for 60 calendar months. The ATP-CTP completion certificate does not expire.
The ATP-CTP course [2200A] costs $4595, which includes 30 hours of classroom instruction, 10 hours of simulator training and required materials and supplies. The fee does not include travel or lodging. The course fee is non-refundable beginning 30 days from the scheduled class. Classes may be scheduled up to six months in advance.
