Why would you go anywhere else when FTI can train you in the simulator of the aircraft you want to fly in the majors?!
The course includes 30 hours of classroom training followed by 10 hours of FSTD training.
Topics covered in the ATP-CTP course include: aerodynamics, automation, adverse weather conditions, air carrier operations, transport airplane performance, professionalism and leadership development, runway incursion avoidance, stall prevention and recovery, high altitude operations and crosswind takeoffs and landings in adverse weather.

ATP‐CTP Frequently Asked Questions
In 2015, the FAA added the Airline Transport Pilot Certification Training Program (ATP-CTP) as a prerequisite to taking the ATP Knowledge Test. The ATP CTP is designed to bridge the knowledge gap between a pilot who holds a commercial pilot certificate and a pilot operating in an air carrier environment.
Successful completion of the ATP CTP will ensure an ATP applicant receives the baseline knowledge and experience to prepare them for the duties, responsibilities, and challenges of an air carrier environment.

The ATP-CTP course includes 30 hours of classroom training followed by 10 hours of FSTD training.
Academic topics include: Aerodynamics, Meteorology, Air Carrier Operations, Leadership/Professional Development, Cockpit Resource Management (CRM) and Safety Culture., runway incursion avoidance, stall prevention and recovery, high altitude operations, as well as crosswind takeoffs and landings in adverse weather.
FSTD topics include Navigation, Flight Management System, Automation/Autoflight, Runway Safety, Adverse Weather Conditions, Ground Operations, High Altitude Operations, Stall and Upset Prevention and Recovery procedures.
There are no eligibility requirements for the ATP-CTP course, however the course is intended for pilots preparing to earn an Airline Transport Pilot Certificate. Typically, ATP-CTP students will hold at least a commercial multi-engine certificate. Non-US citizens must pass a Transportation Security Administration security background screening prior to training.
No, the ATP‐CTP Course does not include specific preparation toward the ATP written exam. The primary objective is to bridge the knowledge gap between a pilot who holds a commercial pilot certificate and a pilot operating in an air carrier environment. Successful completion of the ATP-CTP will ensure an ATP applicant receives the baseline knowledge and experience to prepare them for the duties, responsibilities, and challenges of an air carrier environment.
No, the ATP‐CTP Course is a prerequisite to taking the ATP Knowledge Test. Pilots desiring an ATP certificate must take an approved ATP Rating Course and complete the Practical Test Airplane for Airline Transport Pilots.
At the conclusion of ATP‐CTP training, you will receive a graduation certificate which must be presented at the time you take your ATP Knowledge Test.
ATP-CTP Certificates do not expire, so there is no harm in taking the ATP-CTP course at anytime. However ATP Knowledge Test results are only valid for 60 months.
ATP-CTP is an experiential learning course therefore no pre-study is required.
