ATP CTP Course Overview


  • Course Cost ~ Call for Revised COVID-19 Pricing
  • Course Duration 6 - 7 Days
  • Virtual Remote Ground School Available!

The ATP-CTP (Airline Transport Pilot Certification Training Program) is a required first step before taking the Airline Transport Pilot Knowledge Test (ATP Written).

The course includes 30 hours of classroom training followed by 10 hours of Fixed Base and Full motion simulator training in the Boeing 737-800 or Boeing 767-300ER.

Sheppard Air ATM test prep software included.

ATP Knowledge Test Preparation Software Included with your enrollment!


ATM Knowledge Test Prep: The ATP CTP training course you will be attending will not, by itself, prepare you for the FAA's ATM knowledge exam. Along with your registration for your ATP CTP training, you will be enrolled in Sheppard Air's ATM study course. Studying for the ATM test can easily take 2 weeks, and you should be ready for the ATM Knowledge Exam before arriving for your first day of the ATP CTP course… so don't delay getting started studying, enroll today!

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.

Gulf Coast Aeronautical offers the ATP-CTP program at the Orlando FL, and Dallas Fort Worth TX Training Centers, with several scheduling opportunities each month.

FAA Note:
The ATP CTP covers specific subjects required by regulation. The Airline Transport Pilot Multi-Engine (ATM) knowledge test questions are developed by the FAA separately from required ATP CTP course content. It’s important to understand that even though the ATP CTP is a prerequisite for the knowledge test, the ATP CTP is not designed to prepare you for the ATM knowledge test.
