Does the Airline Career Pilot program include ATP CTP?

Not sure if it does, and as far as I understand you need ATP CTP to be qualified for an airline job. Can anyone please clarify?

No, the program does not include the ATP CTP as you need 1,500 hours of flight time to qualify for it. Most regional airlines will provide that training for you.

Eric,

No it does not. The reason is because you need a considerable amount more than just the ATP-CTP to be qualified as an airline pilot. There’s a host of flight time requirements (Instrument, Cross Country, Multiengine, Night etc) which also must be satisfied not the least of which is 1500hrs total time. Once you reach those time requirements the Regional that hires you will train and complete the ATP-CTP as part of your newhire training.
