ATP Flight School is to use Boeing’s Jeppesen and ForeFlight software for flight planning, charts, navigation data and dispatch training.
ATP Flight School is the USA’s largest flight school with a training fleet of 375 aircraft, flying over 31,000 hours per month, providing more than 7,600 pilot certifications annually at 37 flight training centers. More ATP graduates fly for airlines than from any other academy in the USA, with over 620 hired in the last year.
Justin Dennis, ATP president said, “We are committed to providing the most efficient path towards becoming an airline pilot and equipping students with the resources they need for success. Integrating Boeing’s Jeppesen products and advanced capabilities into our students’ current use of ForeFlight is a natural fit and builds on our mission of preparing students for successful airline pilot careers.”
Boeing has also recently announced agreements with the following flight schools and aviation training organizations:
- The Community College of Allegheny County in the USA will be using Boeing learning content for the FAA Airline Transport Pilot certification, Jeppesen online courses, training kits and charting solutions starting in the fall semester
- The Gulf Aviation Academy in Bahrain is to use Boeing’s Jeppesen dispatch training program
- The Ninety Nines Flying School in Kenya is to expand its existing Boeing learning content and begin using Boeing’s Jeppesen dispatch training program
- OxfordSaudia in Saudi Arabia, has subscribed to ForeFlight Mobile and Jeppesen’s electronic charts service for their first 12 aircraft and two flight training devices
Meanwhile, the ATP Flight School recently ordered 100 Cessna Skyhawk aircraft from Textron Aviation to be delivered over the next four years and replace aircraft in its current fleet.
