To be eligible for the ATP-R:
- Graduate from one of the approved degree majors (see "What ERAU Degrees Are Approved by the FAA?")
- Complete Instrument flight and ground training under Part 141 at ERAU
- Complete Commercial flight and ground training under Part 141 at ERAU
- After Aug. 1, 2014, complete ATP-CTP (Airline Transport Pilot/Certified Training Program) at ERAU
- Take ATP Knowledge Exam at an authorized FAA Testing Center
- If you have completed the prescribed 60 credit hours, build your time to 1,000 hours with 200 Cross Country hours (as well as the other requirements of FAR 61.159)
- If you have completed between 30 and 60 of the prescribed credit hours, build your time to 1,250 hours with 200 Cross Country hours
- Take the Practical Exam for the ATP certificate
On the contrary, ERAU was an integral part of the rule-making process and initially requested Part 142 be included in our exemption.
ERAU lobbied the FAA during the rule-making process to include training under Part 142. When the rule was issued with Part 142 not included, ERAU discussed this with the FAA and was given instructions to submit a request to have Part 142 included during the degree-approval process.
Upon receiving the initial Letter of Approval, the FAA communicated that the Part 142 training needed to be approved through the exemption process. At that point, ERAU immediately submitted an exemption request.
The difference is a European frozen ATP and ATP-R are for second-in-command privileges only in air carriers. An ATP is required to be PIC.
Once the ATP-CTP course is completed (and you have the specific flight time), you are eligible to take the ATP Practical Test.
ERAU already has an approved ATP course in the DA 42L aircraft. The cost of this course is approximately $5,300.
Discussions on the possibility of an ATP/type rating in the CRJ 200 are ongoing. Most airlines will provide an ATP course in their initial training program.
