Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University has become the first training provider in the US to receive approval from the FAA for its ATP Certification Training Program (CTP). With the completion of an FAA-approved aviation degree program from Embry-Riddle, graduates are also eligible to receive the newly created Restricted ATP certification after 1,000 or 1,250 training hours, making them eligible for hiring by a scheduled passenger airline (Part 121 carrier), between 250 and 500 flight training hours sooner compared to students completing a non-qualified program. Embry-Riddle's ATP CTP coursework includes a minimum of 10 hours of flight time in the university's aircraft simulators, including the only FAA-qualified Level D CRJ-200 full motion full flight simulator in use by a university in the United States. Once the ATP CTP course is completed, Embry-Riddle students receive a graduation certificate and the required endorsement to take the FAA's ATP Airman Knowledge Test. Students who major in Aeronautical Science with an Airline Pilot area of concentration will complete the ATP CTP course as part of their normal degree requirements. ATP Certification Training Program
