The National Test Pilot School (NTPS) announced that it formally submitted its Application for an EASA Part – ORA ATO Approval in late May 2014 and it was registered by EASA in early June 2014. This is the first formal step in the process for NTPS to receive EASA Approval as an Authorized Training Organization (ATO) for Flight Test. NTPS President and CEO, Dr. AL Peterson, stated that “NTPS is committed to meeting the flight test education and training needs of our EASA member customers and our application for approval as an EASA Flight Test ATO demonstrates the seriousness of that commitment. We look forward to working with EASA to complete the ATO approval process as soon as possible.” NTPS currently conducts flight test education and training that meets or exceeds the known EASA requirements for Category I and Category II flight test personnel and for Flight Test Instructors.
