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.
A person must be at least 18 years old and must meet the minimum experience requirements of one of the following:
§61.73 Military pilots or former military pilots: Special rules; or
§61.75 Private pilot certificate issued on the basis of a foreign pilot license; or
§61.123 ATP AMEL eligibility requirements: Commercial Pilot with an Airplane Multi-engine and Instrument Rating; or
§61.153 (d)(3) Holds either a foreign airline transport pilot license with instrument privileges, or a foreign commercial pilot license with an instrument rating, that was issued by a contracting State to the Convention on International Civil Aviation and contains no geographical limitations.
Note: An applicant does NOT need a multi-engine rating to enroll in and graduate from this course. A civilian pilot may apply for a restricted ATP certificate as per §61.160. A military pilot who meets the requirements of 14 CFR part 61, §61.73 and §61.153 for an Airline Transport Pilot certificate; airplane category; multi-engine land class ratings may apply for a restricted ATP certificate as per §61.160.
30 hours of ground instruction is foreseen for this course as well as an end of ground course exam. This will be followed by 4 hours of FTD level 4 or higher, followed by 6 hours of FFS level C or D.

"I thoroughly enjoyed your ATP-CTP course. The information was thorough, informative, and enjoyable to learn. The simulators were also amazing. Both instructors, Rick and Bart, were a pleasure to work with. Their personal experiences combined with their enthusiasm for instruction made me extremely eager to learn and listen to what they had to say. I would and will highly recommend the K & S ATP CTP course to anyone interested!" - Brad

How do I convert my Foreign License?If you currently have no FAA license, you will need to: 1) go through the FAA Foreign License Verification process: https://www.faa.gov/licenses_certificates/airmen_certification/foreign_license_verification/ 2) go through the ATP-CTP course 3) take the ATP written test (at any FAA approved testing center) 4) Once you have the above, you can do the type rating course with ATP practical (must be done in conjunction per FAA regulations). *TSA clearance will be required for each course separately for Non-U.S citizens* More info for international students here: https://www.kandsaviation.com/tsa-faa
What steps do I need to take if I have a Foreign License?Thank you for your interest in K & S Aviation. If you currently have no FAA license, you will need to: 1) go through the FAA Foreign License Verification process: https://www.faa.gov/licenses_certificates/airmen_certification/foreign_license_verification/ 2) go through the ATP-CTP course 3) take the ATP written test (at any FAA approved testing center) 4) Once you have the above, you can do the type rating course with ATP practical (must be done in conjunction per FAA regulations). *TSA clearance will be required for each course separately for Non-U.S citizens* Canadian License Holders For our Canadian license holders, some extra information: There is an agreement between the FAA and Transport Canada which allows a quick conversion of an ATP Certificate from one country to another. The details are in FAA Circular AC: 61-135A (Can Google it). What is needed is a written “differences" exam, the ATP CTP course, and an FAA medical + the required paperwork. There is NO practical exam required. The FAA will transfer any type ratings and instrument rating from the Canadian ATPL to the FAA certificate.

Boeing B-737 NG DifferencesContact for E-brochure Objective: To provide a flight crew member with the differences from the Boeing B-737 Classic to the Boeing B-737 NG with respect to system components and operational aspects.
Boeing B-737 SIC Qualification and SIC Type RatingThe Boeing B-737 SIC Type Rating follows the same training footprint as the initial Boeing B-737 curriculum F, without the checkride. Furthermore, in order to receive an SIC rating on an FAA license, a candidate must perform one take-off and landing on the actual aircraft. For this reason, no SIC type rating will be issued until such a letter from a training captain is received and presented to an examiner at a FSDO or a TCE at K&S. K&S’s suggestion: as the one take-off and landing may not necessarily be easily accessible, we suggest to go for the PIC rating (with PIC limitation – for some) as this would indicate to a flight dept. that you passed the training successfully for the specific type rating.
