ATP360 An Air Carrier First Officer Training Program
ATP360 air carrier training applies to pilots holding a commercial certificate with instrument and multi-engine ratings. This document describes how the ATP360 program achieves its objectives: to educate and train qualified pilots for First Officer and eventually Captain positions with the regional and/or the major airlines. This document also provides an overview of a selection process, an academic curriculum, a flight training program, faculty preparation, and program evaluation. The focus of ATP360 is to develop industry-recognized competencies and instill the knowledge, skills and attitudes required to bring persons up to professional air carrier standards.
The correlation between initial airline applicant flight hours (experience) and both training and initial line performance has been found to be weak. Current new-hire failure rates are reported to be at historically high levels. A solution is improved, industry and career-specific training, followed by mentoring. The intent of ATP360 is to build on varied pilot applicant experience by providing effective air carrier training.
