US-based flight training company ATP Flight School has opened its second training centre in Denver, Colorado.

Located at the Rocky Mountain Metropolitan Airport (BJC) outside Boulder, the new facility will provide students hoping to become pilots with access to training.

Under this programme, ATP will offer full financing for career training and airline tuition reimbursement from 12 airline partners, including Horizon Air, envoy, SkyWest Airlines, Mesa Airlines among others.

It will also provide a direct path to major airlines through its cadet programmes.

ATP marketing director Michael Arnold said: “ATP is committed to providing aspiring airline pilots with the most efficient path to not only meet their goals but go further in their careers with more opportunity.

“We are proud to be able to offer students in the region with access to quality, airline-oriented flight training, which has been proven by more ATP graduates flying for airlines than from any other academy.”

ATP students will also be exposed to standardised airline-oriented procedures.
