ATP Flight School Accepts Delivery Of Eight Piper Archers

Will Support American Airlines Career Path Through Envoy Air

ATP Flight School has accepted delivery of eight Archer TXs from Piper Aircraft - the largest single Archer delivery to-date for ATP. These aircraft are part of a deal between Piper and ATP, announced last year, for the purchase of up to 100 of the single-engine trainers. With a retail value of $37 million, this fleet order is ATP's second, with 114 Archers already in operation.

 
"Piper Aircraft is proud of our continuous partnership with ATP Flight School. The well-rounded pilot training curriculum offered by ATP combined with advanced Piper training aircraft with the latest in Garmin avionics continues to strengthen ATP's stellar reputation for providing well-trained pilots who are prepared for the demands of the aviation industry," said Simon Caldecott, Piper President and CEO.  
 
All eight of the newly delivered, Garmin G1000 NXi equipped, aircraft will be placed into service at ATP's Dallas locations, training future American Airlines pilots through the Envoy Air Cadet Program. In this program, Envoy Air - American's largest regional carrier - offers ATP students an accelerated path to a pilot career at the legacy airline, with a flow-through agreement and financial assistance. ATP is the largest participant in the Envoy Air Cadet Program.
 
"ATP has placed over 500 pilots with Envoy Air and has the most pilots enrolled in the Cadet Program. Our students and instructors recognize ATP as the most efficient path to a pilot career at American Airlines," said Justin Dennis, ATP President. "We are proud to make this investment to support our students' and instructors' success and to support the pilot supply for Envoy and American."
 
This recent delivery is one of many for 2019, with 22 additional Piper Archers scheduled for delivery to ATP through the end of the year.
