ATP Flight Schools Explained
However, total flight hour and age requirements can be lowered if seeking a restricted ATP license.
AeroGuard fulfills its goal of being an ATP-focused Flight School through the Pilot Pathway Program . This program has two parts, the first as a student which provides an accelerated, optimized curriculum that takes them through the foundational knowledge and all of the FAA flight certificates and ratings they will need.
Upon completion of the Pilot Pathway Program, students will graduate, but still require 1500 hours of flight time experience to qualify for their ATP. To help students achieve this requirement, and offer them a path to the airlines, graduates receive a guaranteed interview for a CFI position with AeroGuard, teaching the next generation of students. As the Pathway Program includes all three CFI Ratings (Initial, Instrument and Multi-Engine), these graduates are now able to take students through the full Pathway Program ensuring them the ability to earn more hours, faster.
Certificates and Ratings Acquired through the Pilot Pathway Program:
- Private Pilot License
- Instrument Rating
