Non-Profit US Flight School to Aid Pilots Get ATP Certificate
Florida, United States based Air Transport Flight Academy (AFTA) has been approved by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) as a 501C3 public charity. The charity’s mission is to provide training for licensed pilots leading to an ATP certificate by providing full or partial scholarships to qualified candidates unable to cover the cost.
ATFA’s plan is to offer qualified candidates (qualifications to be determined) who are unable to afford the high cost of flight training either full or partial scholarship while also helping its graduates find employment in the airline industry.
Once funded ATFA will begin training qualified candidates at existing flight schools (possibly in conjunction with an aviation college) with the idea of purchasing its own FAA 141 approved flight school or schools once funds become available.
ATFA intends to reach out to FAA 121, 135 carriers along with the international community seeking contracts to supply qualified ATP graduates.
