ATP’s professional pilot candidates will soon have access to multiple King Schools courses after the two flight training specialists recently signed an agreement. While learning to fly at ATP, students in the Airline Career Pilot Program will have access to ground instruction 24/7 through the videos and interactive courseware that King Schools produces.

The ATP Airline Career Pilot Program is designed to take candidates from having no experience through the 1,500 hours of flight time now required to fly for an airline. “We take students from zero time to an airline cockpit in about two years. To make that happen we have to be organized and efficient,” said ATP’s president Justin Dennis. “The clear, simple and practical King courses will be key in helping us accomplish that.”

ATP students will initially have access to the Private Pilot Ground School and Test Prep Course, the Private Pilot Practical Test Course and the Garmin 430 Online Video Course. ATP’s fleet of twin-engine Piper Seminoles is all equipped with Garmin’s GNS 430 navigators. “We are looking to expand our use of King online video courses in the future,” Dennis said.

The courses are accessible online and through King Schools’ companion app, which allows students to download material and study it even when an Internet connection is not available.
