ATP Flight School opens new base in San Luis Obispo, California – 70th Flight Training base in the US

31st Oct 2021

ATP Flight School’s newest training center is now open at the San Luis County Regional Airport (SBP) in San Luis Obispo, CA. As the nation’s largest flight school, this new facility marks ATP’s 70th training center and brings airline-oriented pilot training to the San Luis community.

Situated between ATP’s existing operations in Northern California and Southern California, the San Luis Obispo training center offers aspiring pilots in the Golden State with access to ATP’s proven Airline Career Pilot Program. This airline career path is the fastest track to becoming an airline pilot. Students start with either zero experience or a private pilot certificate and graduate in just seven months with their commercial pilot and flight instructor certificates, allowing them to quickly establish their careers and capitalize on the post-pandemic pilot shortage.

ATP is the leading supplier of airline pilots to the nation’s airlines and students at SBP now have the opportunity to take advantage of ATP’s hiring alliances. Over 30 airline partnerships provide graduates with a fast track to all major airlines as well as access to financial incentives including airline-sponsored tuition reimbursement. Most recently, ATP announced a new partnership and accelerated pathway for ATP graduates to advance their career directly to Sun Country Airlines as Boeing 737 First Officers.

“As the industry faces a post-pandemic pilot shortage, San Luis Obispo will be integral in the development of airline pilots to meet this demand.” Michael Arnold, ATP Director of Marketing.
