December 8, 2017 San Diego, CA – ATP Flight School, the nation’s leader in providing the most efficient training path to a successful airline pilot career, has added King Schools online video courses as a key element in their Airline Career Pilot Program.

On sign-up, students will get a head-start with the King Schools Private Pilot Ground School and Test Prep Course. Then, when they start their flight training, they will be enrolled in the King Schools Private Pilot Practical Test Course, which provides HD video showing a model checkride with an FAA examiner using the new Airmen Certification Standards (ACS). And to provide a leg up in operating the Garmin 430, the standardized GPS platform in the ATP fleet, students will also receive the King Schools Garmin 430 Online Video Course.

The King Schools and ATP teams enjoy an all clear for takeoff moment at ATP’s Florida headquarters .

All three courses are integrated into ATP’s online student portal, where students go for handy access to resources needed during their training.

“We’ve gotten rave responses from our students about the King video courses,” said Justin Dennis, President of ATP. “We take students from zero time to an airline cockpit in about two years. To make that happen we have to be organized and efficient. The clear, simple and practical King courses will be key in helping us accomplish that. We are looking to expand our use of King online video courses in the future,” continued Dennis.

King Schools’ Co-Founder John King commented, “We have some fun with the teaching, and ATP’s students recognize and appreciate that. Also, the courses can be viewed online on any device and are compatible with the King Schools Companion App, which enables offline access with synched progress on iPhones and iPads. The students can take the King courses anywhere and study them anytime, which is exactly what ATP’s students need.”

“We are delighted to be part of ATP’s career pilot training program,” added Martha King, the other Co-Founder of King Schools. “As America’s largest flight school, with over 40 locations, ATP is the leading supplier of professionally trained pilots to the nation’s regional airlines.”
