EASA.ATO.0027 Certificates

(Mojave, CA) The National Test Pilot School (NTPS) is pleased to announce that the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) Certified NTPS as a Part-ORA Approved Training Organisation (ATO) for Part-FCL Flight Test Training. This means that NTPS is the first Test Pilot School in the world to be certified and approved by EASA to provide Flight Test Rating training.

NTPS President and CEO Dr. Allen L. Peterson stated “This is an absolutely amazing and historic day! We are ecstatic to be the first test pilot school in the world to achieve certification as a Flight Test ATO from EASA. This certification is the culmination of several years of extremely hard work by a great number of people at both NTPS and EASA. Moreover, this independent agency certification further proves what we at NTPS have been saying for years; that our program and our graduates are on par with any other test pilot school in the world. We told our customers it was our goal to get EASA certified to meet their training needs and we got it done. What an incredible team effort!”

An innovative leader in total flight test training and research, the National Test Pilot School has been serving the world-wide flight test community since 1981 and has trained thousands of Test Pilots and Flight Test Engineers through its diverse course offerings.
