Airline Transport Pilot (ATP)

baronAn Airline Transport Pilot rating on your pilot certificate may provide the edge needed to move ahead in a competitive pilot job market. It enhances your qualifications above those other applicants with only a “completed knowledge test” as your resume is reviewed.

Sporty’s Academy’s preparation program helps to prepare a qualified candidate for the Multiengine ATP practical test in our Piper Aztec.

Qualified candidates must meet the following prerequisites before enrolling in the training portion of this course:

  • Must meet the eligibility and experience requirements defined in 14 CFR Sections 61.153 and 61.159 (61.160 for a Restricted-ATP).
  • Must have successfully completed the FAA Knowledge Test (unexpired) prior to arrival for the training.  If you need to take the FAA Knowledge Test, you will need to take an FAA Approved ATP-CTP course prior to taking the test.  We offer this training in conjunction with ABX Airlines.  Learn more about our ATP-CTP course with ABX.
  • Must be proficient on single-pilot instrument and light-twin piston multiengine procedures, knowledge, and skills. (Additional training may be required if initial evaluation shows this proficiency to be lacking.)
  • Must complete the pre-training study package for this course and review the checklist and avionics manuals for our Aztec. (Note: After ordering the pre-training study package, you should find it at http://sportys.com/mydownloads when logged into your Sportys.com account or My Downloadable Products from your My Account dashboard on the Sporty’s page.)

What do our customers say?

“I went through your ATP course with a buddy of mine. I just wanted to say thanks to the whole Sporty’s team for an outstanding job. From the scheduling, to the line boys pulling the plane in the hangar in the morning to get rid of the frost, to the instructor, the extra effort to get my night time in, and being flexible with scheduling the examiner, I was thoroughly impressed with your operation. Everyone we worked with did their best to make it a great week. I finished under the price quoted online, and I’ll definitely recommend your program to anyone trying to finish up the ATP!”
