ATP will open five new training centers across the country and drastically reduce its pricing for certain courses, the nationwide flight training provider said Feb. 2. According to the company, prices for the accelerated multiengine courses will be reduced by as much as 20 percent. Quick multiengine ATP certificates are what the company was founded upon.
“We are taking full advantage of the current economic climate to reduce expenses across the board. Lower fuel prices, insurance rates, facility leases, and owning our own aircraft mean that we can lower our prices and compete very effectively in this market,” said Jim Koziarski, ATP vice president of flight operations.
The company will be also be opening new training centers in Charlotte, N.C.; Indianapolis; Tampa, Fla.; San Diego; and Oakland, Calif. San Diego will be the first location to open when the company begins business at Montgomery Field on Feb. 9. The other centers are expected to open in the next few months.
