Mornin’ Everyone!

I submitted an application yesterday and was called about 45 minutes later to schedule an interview. I received an email of what to bring, and below are the listed items. I do not have an ATP rating, nor have I taken the CTP course or the written knowledge test. Below it says to “bring ATP written (if you do not hold ATP Certificate)”. My application states I have not taken the ATP written.

My question is, Compass is paying for my ATP CTP, like every most other regionals, correct? It sounds like they are expecting me to have my CTP course completed and written passed. If nobody knows the answer, I can call a pilot recruiter and ask them. Thanks!

Hello and welcome. I think that language was a hold-over from before the CTP was a thing. They will pay for your CTP, which they try to schedule the week prior to your orientation. Your pay won't start until you are at orientation, though. At least that's what they told me.

Good luck! The interview gouge is spot on, btw.

Yeah you don’t need an ATP or the written. Compass flies you out and pays for it.
