Hands down, the best part of my job is helping fellow aviators achieve their career goals. I get a lot of testimonials from graduates of ATP’s Regional Jet Standards Certification Program, and often there are nuggets like this one, from Airline Career Pilot Program graduate and former ATP instructor John Tatara:
Good Afternoon Paul,
It is John Tatara, and I just wanted to take a minute to thank you. I passed the PC (Proficiency Checkride) on the CRJ-900 with Mesaba and I’m just waiting for IOE (Initial Operating Experience). Adam also passed, and we both agree that the RJ Course helped a ton. I was able to concentrate on many other things since I already was very familiar with the RJ’s systems and FMS. The profiles that were put together were very similar, and I would tell everyone to take the RJ Course to help their airline training go smoothly. Thanks again to you and everyone at ATP and Happy Holidays.
John and Adam(also an Airline Career Pilot Program graduate and former
instructor) both passed training at Mesaba, and recognize the edge that the Regional Jet Standards Certification Course gave them.
Hiring opportunities are still there, waiting for pilots to take advantage of. John took our Regional Jet Standards Certification Course in September of 2008 when he was being told that there was no hiring going on in the airline industry. He was hired less than a month later in October, and you can read the results above.
Congratulations to John and Adam on their success at Mesaba.
