What is ATPL?
ATPLÂ stands forÂ Airline Transport Pilot License, which we refer to in America as an ATP. Itâ€™s the highest level an aircraft pilot can achieve.

Our ATP Flight School
The ATP flight school doesnâ€™t issueÂ the ATPL; that is awarded by EASA or FAA in relation to the type of aircraft youâ€™ll use it to fly. If students graduate from an ATP flight school and gain certification asAirline Transport PilotsÂ without conditions or restrictions, they are permitted to fly the aircraft for which they also hold a type rating. Basically, ATP is a commercial pilot license (CPL) with a type rating that applies to a specific make and model of aircraft.
AtÂ our ATP flight SchoolÂ we teach all the courses leading up to and including what you need to know for the ATPL so you donâ€™t have to obtain the highest level pilot license if thatâ€™s not your goal. You might instead only want to get your PPL or some other pilot certification.
Read more about various levels ofÂ flight trainingÂ we offer here.
