ATP Flight School has accepted delivery of eight Archer TXs from Piper Aircraft – the largest single Archer delivery to-date for ATP. These aircraft are part of a deal between Piper and ATP, announced last year, for the purchase of up to 100 of the single-engine trainers. This fleet order is ATP’s second, with 114 Archers already in operation.
All eight of the newly delivered, Garmin G1000 NXi equipped, aircraft will be placed into service at ATP’s Dallas locations, training future American Airlines pilots through the Envoy Air Cadet Program. In this program, Envoy Air offers ATP students an accelerated path to a pilot career at the legacy airline, with a flow-through agreement and financial assistance. ATP is the largest participant in the Envoy Air Cadet Program.
This recent delivery is one of many for 2019, with 22 additional Piper Archers scheduled for delivery to ATP through the end of the year.
