Specially designed for airline pilot development, ATP Flight School’s advanced 13,875-square-foot flight training center, currently under construction at the Arlington, Texas Municipal Airport (KGKY) represents, according to a company news release, a substantial investment in Dallas-Fort Worth-area students and to meeting future demand for qualified airline pilots. Once completed, the new facility will increase ATP’s current operations at airport and expand training capacity to meet projected airline pilot demand.

“Every aspect of the new training center will be optimized to efficiently and effectively deliver professional pilot training through ATP’s Airline Career Pilot Program,” the company said. “Ample classroom and dedicated briefing space allow students to safely train in person, with a proven airline-oriented curriculum delivered by ATP’s nationally awarded instructors. Adjoining the facility will be a new 12,000-square-foot maintenance center to ensure students stay on track with unparalleled access to reliable, dispatch-ready aircraft.”

Arlington will serve as home to many of ATP’s new aircraft being delivered as part of an order from both Cessna and Piper that will increase ATP’s fleet size to more than 410 new Garmin G1000 NXi equipped technologically advanced aircraft.
