ATP Multi-Engine Add-on

Finished your ATP-CPT course and need to get your ATP AMEL certification? Well, we can provide both the FAA Knowledge Exam (Code: ATM) as well as the necessary training and aircraft for certification.


Applicants for this course must have already passed the ATM (ATP-CPT) FAA Knowledge Exam within the past 24 calendar months (which can be taken at our facility). Applicants should have a valid FAA Commercial Pilot certificate and meet the minimum time requirements for the ATP certificate as specified in 14 CFR part 61. It is expected that each applicant is IFR current and proficient and has prepared for this course by reading the required material and has become familiar with the required study material.

For those seeking the restricted-ATP certification

You may either be a graduate of a institution of higher learning with a bachelor's or associate's degree in an approved aviation course. We will need to see a diploma from the university as well as graduation certificates from the FAA Approved 141 courses from that school. You must have at least 1250 hours (for an associate's degree) or 1000 hours (for a bachelor's degree) to qualify under the restricted ATP certificate (see 14 CFR 61.160 and subparts). You may also be an active military person with at least 750 hours (with appropriate documentation of graduation from UPT and being on active duty) and meeting the requirements of 14 CFR 61.160(a).

For those seeking full ATP privileges

Applicants for the full certification must show at least 1500 hours of flight time and meeting of all requirements of 14 CFR 61.159.

Course Detail

Upon graduation from an approved ATP-CPT course and completion of the FAA Knowledge Exam, this course essentially provides an aircraft type checkout to include the tasks that are required by the ATP Practical Test Standards. You should plan on spending 3-half days with us and have plenty of time to further prepare and study for the exam. The material is very condensed and requires upfront study as well as adequate preparation and review for each lesson. The schedule is roughly as follows:

Day 1:   08:00 or 12:00 (as scheduled) Check-in with dispatch
08:30 or 12:30 (as scheduled) Ground/Oral Prep (3.0 -4.0 hours)

Day 2:   08:00 or 12:00 (as scheduled) Briefing for Flight
09:00 or 13:00 (as scheduled) Preflight Inspection and Departure (2.5-3.0 hours)
Complete IACRA or other required paperwork


Day 3:   08:00 or 12:00 (as scheduled) Meet with instructor
09:00 or 13:00 (as scheduled) Oral Exam
10:30 or 14:30 (approximate times) Practical Exam (Flight approximately 1.8-2.2 hours)

You can expect the flight to be conducted out of 52F and around the neighboring airports of AFW and LUD for approaches, airwork, and landings. Be prepared to conduct flight ops out of these airports, fly any of the approaches specified for those two airports. For some applicants, the familiarity with piston engine aircraft and use of the Garmin GNS-430W have required some additional training. Please use the information in the study packet to become familiar with the Garmin GPS unit as well as reviewing necessary operating procedures and principles of dealing with small piston engine airplanes and multi-engine concepts. It is expected that you have reviewed all of the documents in the study packet (below) before arrival on the first day. The oral prep will be used mostly as a Q&A session and review rather than a typical ground school.


The course is billed at a flat rate of $2,500 and includes all training materials and 5.0 total hours of airplane time (2.5 training & 2.5 for checkride), 2.5 hours of instruction time, and 3 hours of ground school. The examiners will charge their fee ($600) separately.
