ATP flight school length

So from the point of signing up to ATP flight school to going to the airlines, how long is that period of time


I recommend you go take a look at the FAQ section and explore ATP’s website.

To answer your question, from zero time it’s 7 months in the program. Then an additional 12-15 building time. That’s a total of about 2 years to get through the program and at a regional airline.



Hannah answered your question spot on, one thing I’d like to add to her mention of 12-15 months is that depending on your work ethic and dedication to building time, it could be the given constant above or extended if you want every weekend off or take breaks. Yes, it is important to look out for yourself and physiques, but too many and not only hurt yourself, but your students. The common method of time building is flight instructing.
