ATP-CTP Course: Unlock The Airline Transport Pilot Certification

ATP-CTP Course

Epic Flight Academy is proud to offer an ATP-CTP course in partnership with Simulator Center LLC. The ATP-CTP (Airline Transport Pilot Certification Training Program) is an important tool. This is because it helps you prepare for the Airline Transport Pilot Knowledge Test (ATP written test). The course includes 32 hours of classroom training followed by 10 hours of flight simulator training. Conveniently, it is offered in the Orlando, Florida area.

What is the ATP?

ATP stands for Airline Transport Pilot in the U.S. Other countries refer to this as the ATPL (airline transport pilot license). This is the highest level of pilot certificate, and your final step to becoming an airline pilot.

Our FAA-approved Part 61 flight school emphasizes flight safety first. This includes every course in each program. From PPL to multi-engine, our courses fulfill requirements that lead to your FAA issued licenses. Above all, you will have unrestricted access to excellent instructors and the newest training equipment. We provide quality instruction at an affordable cost. Epic welcomes all students at all levels and can build on your existing training whether military or private.
