Gwinnett County Airport Location Will Open June 16
Airline Transport Professionals (ATP) announced this week the
June 16 opening of its new training center at the Gwinnett County
Airport (LZU) in Metro Atlanta, GA. ATP has strategically placed
its second Atlanta location to facilitate the growth of its Airline
Career Pilot Program.
The site boasts spacious classrooms, simulator bays and pilot
sleep/shower quarters, along with 20,000 square feet of hangar
space. In addition, ATP has installed and will operate its own fuel
farm to keep costs as low as possible for professional pilot
students. Gwinnett County Airport is an optimal fit for ATP, being
outside the 30 NM veil of Atlanta's busy Class B airspace. ATP
students will enjoy the challenging towered environment of a Class
D airport without the long waits for clearance.
ATP tells ANN it currently delivers more pilots to the regional
airlines than any other single flight school, college, or academy.
The company is successful through the efficient immersion of
students in multi-engine airline-style flight training over a short
time frame. The benefit for the customer is the best training on
the market at an extremely competitive price. With self fueling and
a spacious training center in ideal airspace, ATP's newest facility
will aid the company in meeting its strategic goals.
In 1984, ATP pioneered accelerated, professional multi-engine
flight training with an emphasis on pilot career development.
Today, ATP's Airline Training Programs prepare pilots for airline
careers with nationwide flying experience in multi-engine
Airline hiring partnership letters with 10 leading regional
airlines recognize the value of this experience, by offering ATP
pilots specially reduced flight time minimums for airline
employment, enabling pilots to reach their career goals faster.
Each month, ATP flies over 10,000 hours and provides more than 300
FAA pilot certifications at 20 locations nationwide.
