The objective of this course is to bridge the knowledge gap between the Commercial pilot and the Airline Transport pilot by methodically integrating academic training, practical training, and flight experience. In addition the course will expose and prepare the applicant to operate safely in those operations which require an ATP AMEL certificate by rule. 

Successful completion of the ATP CTP will ensure an ATP AMEL applicant receives the baseline knowledge and experience to prepare them for the duties, responsibilities, and challenges of an air carrier environment. A training center specific and personalized graduation certificate will be distributed to the student after successful completion of all the ATP CTP curriculum requirements. 

This ATP CTP course satisfies 14 CFR part 61, §61.156 – Training requirements: Airplane category—multi-engine class rating or airplane type rating concurrently with airline transport pilot certificate.
