Earlier this month, ATP took delivery of two new Piper PA-44
Seminoles, part of a five-plane order announced earlier this year.
With two planes already delivered, the school expects to receive
the remaining aircraft by August.
Airline Career Pilot Program students fly the multi-engine
Seminoles for 140 hours in a nationwide, airline-style training
