PPRuNe Forums


Flying Instructors & Examiners A place for instructors to communicate with one another because some of them get a bit tired of the attitude that instructing is the lowest form of aviation, as seems to prevail on some of the other forums!

There aren't any.

Currently there are 22 approved CTP providers. Two are part of a 4 year college program and 9 are run by airlines for their new hires. There are 11 available for off the street pilots.

I have done it at Panam International at FL Miami, it was the entire 6 days of ground just going trough the ATP questions. Then even the teacher advice us to download SHEPPARD for studying by memory a few performance and wx questions..

After the training ends, you go to 2 classes of SIM just to do some recovery training and approaches and that is it..

then you scheduled you written ATP exam once you have your ATP-CTP certificate done, and just take the exam there in PANAM.

The exam wasn't easy and I really study hard, but there were a few or a lot of questions that werent on my books nor Sheppard.

So, get prepared and good luck!

I m looking into them on March probably for my ATP, did you do the checkride for the ATP with them as well?
I am trying to find a place to do it in a light twin with a bit of brush up flight training for some months now but it seems the checkride is only provided in P142 institutions with a type?
Any help would be appreciated.

The CTP class has very little to do with the ATM knowledge test. The outline for the CTP class is found in AC 61-138. The AC breaks it down as to how much time must be spent covering aerodynamics, Air Carrier operations, CRM and the like.

Part 142 schools (like Pan Am) use sims to provide type training. Part 141 schools train in little aircraft however a part 141 ATP training program would require 40 hours of ground school and 25 hours of flight training. Even ATP Flight School, a nation wide 141 training provider doesn't do ATPs. Your best bet is to find a part 61 school that does instrument training and tell them you want to work on your ATP. The ATP ride is really just the ME/IR ride to higher standards.
