ATP360: An Air Carrier First Officer Training Program


This document describes how the program achieves its objective: to educate and train currently qualified commercial pilots with multi-engine and instrument ratings for First Officer and eventually Captain positions with the regional and/or the major airlines. This document provides an overview of a selection process, an academic curriculum, and a flight training program which will develop industry-recognized competencies and instill the knowledge, skills and attitudes known as professional standards.


The correlation between initial airline applicant flight hours (experience) and both training and initial line performance has been found to be weak. Current new hire failure rates are reported to be at historical levels. A solution is improved training quality and mentoring. The intent of ATP360 is to build on varied pilot applicant experience by providing effective air carrier training.
