New pilot certification program available through Delta

Now pilots can obtain an Airline Transport Certificate by using top-notch Delta facilities and flight instructors.  

An Airline Transport Certificate is an absolute must for non-commercial aviators looking to begin a career at an airline, most often at a regional carrier.

A change in federal requirements for Airline Transport Pilot certification took effect in August of 2014, which inspired the Delta Aircrew Training Center in Atlanta to create a new Airline Transport Pilot Certification Training Program (ATP CTP) to meet a need in the marketplace.

Delta flight instructors achieved U.S. Federal Aviation Administration approval earlier this year, becoming the first flight training entity at a major airline in the U.S. to offer an ATP CTP course.

“While this is not a class to become a new hire pilot at Delta, it can be used by pilots looking to eventually be hired by any airline,” said Jon Tovani, Delta’s Managing Director of Pilot Training.

The six-day course tuition is $4,995 and consists of classroom instruction and simulator training time. It also includes preparation and proctoring of the multi-engine ATP test, which is required to earn certification, at no additional cost.

“What this does offer is a compelling value proposition for aviators looking to advance toward their ATP at a world-class training facility,” Tovani said.
