The Airline Transport Pilot (ATP) certificate program completes the educational and flight training requirements for commercial/instrument rated helicopter pilots to obtain their Airline Transport Pilot Certificate and be eligible for employment with a regional airline as a professional pilot.

The program is intended to provide students with an educational experience that encourages integration of the theoretical and technical aspects of aviation and the airline industry; to provide a transition from helicopter to multi-engine fixed wing aircraft; and to foster an atmosphere of education as a lifelong process that is necessary in the ever-changing aviation industry.

  • Obtain the appropriate ground and flight certificates;
  • Eligibility for a position with a regional airline to begin their ATP training.

Along with proof of citizenship or Transportation Security Administration approval, admission to this certificate program requires the student to possess a commercial/instrument helicopter rating, 60 credits of college-level courses at an accredited institution, or equivalent employment experience.

Before flight training begins, an aviation medical will be required. Contact the aviation program coordinator for details. Flight fees are required.
