Default ATPL Training

New to forum. I've searched pretty thoroughly and so I hope I'm not duplicating here...

I have been trying to find out the current state of affairs with regard to ATPL training requirements that went into effect last year. All news is old news.

Are new pilots simply forking over the extra $10-15k for the training. There was talk of airlines picking up the tab, pretty laughable I'm sure. Where have people been going for training? A search on FAA turns up only a handful of facilities with programs. ATP FS is still pending on theirs for example. What's the scoop?

Thank You.

I was told by a pilot the other day if you don't have your written done, don't fret. They'll take care of it for you.

Some airlines now have their own ATP CTP course. Others, such as Skywest, will pay for your ATP CTP course.

You need to work on your google-fu young grasshopper!


From an article in Flying Magazine about the ATP:

ATP-CTP Providers
Since the ATP-CTP course requirement has been in effect only since last summer, there are just a handful of training providers that have been signed off by the FAA to provide the program. Unless you're a registered student with an approved university, you are not able to attend the course at facilities such as Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University. Here are some providers that can help you complete the ATP-CTP course, the ground and sim portions of which are generally conducted over six or seven days.

Sporty's Academy/ABX Air ABX provides the required ground and simulator training in Wilmington, Ohio. The program is offered through Sporty's Academy, and ABX Air uses a DC-9 simulator and, in some cases, a Boeing 767-200 sim. The cost for the program is $4,500.

Aerosim Flight Academy Aerosim is a career flight training facility in Orlando, Florida, that achieved the ATP-CTP training sign-off in October. Four of the required 10 simulator hours are conducted in a Level 4 FSTD while the remainder of the training is done in a full motion sim. The cost for the program is $4,995.

CAE SimuFlight CAE SimuFlight has more than 35 training facilities, but at this time its ATP-CTP course is offered only in Dallas. The program uses a Falcon 900 simulator and plans to add simulators for the Embraer 190 and BBJ soon. The cost for the program is $7,900 for a crew of two.

Airline Transport Professionals Another leader in ATP training, Airline Transport Professionals or ATP, should have its program approved by the time you read this. The required 10 hours of simulator training will take place in an MD-80 sim. The cost for the seven-day program is $4,995.
