ATP has announced its flight school´s new training center will open at the Colorado Springs Airport (COS), the company said.
The facility is part of ATP´s nationwide network of 40 locations and marks the school´s third in Colorado.
Colorado Springs will complement ATP´s existing operations in Boulder and Centennial, offering pilots in the area with the Airline Career Pilot Program. This airline career solution takes aspiring pilots from zero experience through an airline pilot job. In nine months, pilots training with ATP in Colorado Springs earn their commercial pilot certification and are then guaranteed a paid flight instructor job to gain further flight hours and experience before moving on to fly as an airline pilot.
With the opening of this new location, career-focused students in Colorado Springs can now take advantage of ATP´s 20-plus airline partnerships, which provide airline-paid tuition reimbursement and career advancement to all major US airlines. Most recently, ATP announced a partnership with Denver-based United Airlines, where students have the opportunity to join a tailored accelerated path to the airline.
Spported by ATP´s training fleet of 398 aircraft, students at the Colorado Springs location will fly ATP´s Cessna 172 Skyhawk aircraft. These modern, state-of-the-art airplanes feature the Garmin G1000 NXi electronic flight deck, equipping students with the latest in glass-cockpit technology as they prepare for their future airline career.
