In our Academy, you can also go through the training program and pass an exam to obtain an ATP license (airline pilot) required to perform the functions of the pilot-in-command of an aircraft. Most of US part 121/part 135 carriers require the ATP license for employment. Similar requirements are found in legislation of most airlines in other countries. If your dream is to fly an Airbus 320 or Boeing 737 you will need this certificate to become a member of the flight crew.
Due to the legislation changes in The United States effective August 2014, the requirements for ATP are stricter and more complex. The prerequisite for allowing you to take the written exam is the mandatory ATP-CTP course. This course, which must be taken at an FAA-approved flight center, includes 30 hours of ground and 10 hours of flight simulation. ATP-CTP course is now available at SkyEagle Aviation Academy.
As a part of the program, we are working in conjunction with an authorized training center to offer this type of training. After the completion of The ATP-CTP course, the candidate will be able to take the written exam in our testing center and prepare for a checkride with an FAA-examiner. Since January 2019, we have been offering this class, which starts on a weekly basis.
After passing the written test, the candidate may choose the training method for obtaining the ATP Certificate.
To be eligible for an airline transport pilot certificate, a person must meet the following requirements:
After July 31, 2014, for an airline transport pilot certificate with an airplane category multiengine class rating or an airline transport pilot certificate obtained concurrently with an airplane type rating, receive a graduation certificate from an authorized training provider certifying completion of the airline transport pilot certification training program before applying for the knowledge test;

Airline Transport Pilot Aircraft-Single Engine Land License and Airline Transport Pilot Aircraft-Multi Engine Land License are two different types of licenses. It is necessary to obtain the Multi Engine Rating which is required for every pilot who plans to fly higher performing aircraft with two or more engines.
The FAA regulations require an airman to hold a type rating when flying for a particular air carrier with aircraft having a weight of over 12,500 pounds. This option is suitable for most pilots, who have more than 1,500 flight hours and do not know the extent of the exact make and model they will be flying on.
A type rating is not required for most carriers who fly aircraft that weights less than 12,500 pounds.
For this reason, we offer candidates the option to conduct their training in one of our two light twin aircraft: The Beechcraft Duchess BE-76 or Tecnam P2006T. The short course consists of 7-10 hours of flight training, as well as 10 hours of ground school. A candidate must become familiar with all aspects of the aircraft prior to the checkride.
The examination is carried out on the exact aircraft the candidate has trained on. Upon successful completion of the check ride, the airman will receive the FAA ATP Multiengine Certificate.
If the candidate is positive as to which aircraft he will fly during his career, we will be able to provide the combination of ATP and Type Rating Training (A320).
After successful completion of this training program, the candidate will receive both The Airline Transport Pilot Certificate and Type Rating for the selected aircraft.
