Training Outfit Orders 20 Planes; Will Provide Owner
Nothing kicks off an
event such as AOPA Expo like a big order... and Diamond Aircraft
announced Thursday that Airline Transport Professionals (ATP) has
purchased 20 single-engine Diamond D-Jets to be utilized in ATP's
Airline Career Pilot Program.
ATP President Derrick Dennis adds his company will also use the
D-Jets -- and five Diamond Flight Training Devices (FTDs) ATP also
ordered -- to train new owners, and allow them to receive
type-ratings for their new planes.
"ATP also looks forward to working closely with Diamond to
ensure that D-Jet training is readily available to D-Jet owners,"
ATP currently employs a Cessna CitationJet for jet aircraft
introductory flight training. Dennis (shown above right, with
Diamond CEO Peter Maurer) says the D-Jets will allow the
company to dramatically increase the amount of jet experience for
their Airline Career Pilot Program students.
"Our dispatch and flight operations team does an excellent job
managing the logistics of our current fleet of nearly 100 aircraft
nationwide. While monumental in the history of our company, 20
D-Jets will seamlessly integrate into the ATP system."
"The D-Jet is the perfect fit for our company," Dennis said. "It
was the only choice for ATP."
