ARLINGTON, Texas, Oct. 08, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — ATP Flight School unveils a new 25,875 square-foot airline pilot training center at the Arlington Municipal Airport (GKY) with a grand opening event on Oct. 8, 2021. Joining ATP's nationwide network of 70 locations, the flagship Arlington facility is the largest in Texas and poised to meet the demand for pilots from Dallas-based airlines.
Each aspect of the new building is designed to efficiently deliver total-immersion airline pilot training. Students in ATP's Airline Career Pilot Program start with zero experience and graduate as commercial multi-engine pilots and flight instructors in just seven months. Pilots graduating on this accelerated timeline are in a competitive position to capitalize on a post-pandemic pilot shortage and quickly establish their careers.
Students at the Arlington training center fly with the latest technology, including Garmin G1000 NXi equipped Cessna 172 Skyhawks and Piper Archers. To support growing demand, ATP is adding to this fleet with deliveries of factory-new Pipers. A co-located ATP maintenance facility services the fleet and ensures dispatch reliability to keep students training on time.
ATP is the only school in Dallas able to offer airlines a complete pilot training solution, with nearby ATP JETS in Irving. The part 142 airline training center complements initial pilot certification at Arlington and is one of the largest ATP CTP (Airline Transport Pilot Certification Training Program) providers, having graduated nearly 10,000 airline pilots.
"ATP Flight School's airline pilot training center is an exciting addition to Arlington. This flagship facility at the Arlington Municipal Airport will help so many achieve their American Dream, whether that is going on to become a commercial pilot or teaching others to fly," Arlington Deputy City Manager Jim Parajon said. "We look forward to the school's continued success as it builds on decades of work preparing the pilots of tomorrow."
ATP's 35-year presence in Texas has played a prominent role in sourcing airline pilots for Dallas-based airlines. More alumni have been hired by American Airlines than any other major airline, and over 650 graduates have gone on to fly for Dallas-based American Eagle carrier Envoy Air. The Arlington training center's advanced capabilities and resources will actively support all Dallas-based airlines in the coming years as they increase pilot hiring.

When people talk about Latin America’s biggest problems, they usually start by citing government corruption, crime and unemployment. However, one of the region’s biggest problems — compared to what I’ve seen in Asia and other parts of the emerging world — is its people’s failure to take education seriously.

In this week’s column we want to help you navigate changes to the Public Service Loan Forgiveness program announced by the Department of Education earlier this week with a step-by-step guide. Over the past several years, we have written about the challenges nurses, teachers, social workers and other public servants have faced accessing the relief they were promised. In many cases, these borrowers only learned they weren’t eligible for relief — often due to a technicality — until after they’d spent years planning their financial lives around eventual forgiveness.
NEW YORK — Mayor Bill de Blasio will overhaul New York City’s highly selective, racially segregated gifted and talented education classes, a sea change for the nation’s largest public school system that may amount to the mayor’s most significant act in the waning months of his tenure. The elementary school gifted and talented program that New York has known for the last several decades will no longer exist for incoming kindergarten students next fall, and within a few years, it will be eliminate

California public schools and colleges must stock their restrooms with free menstrual products under a bill signed Friday by Gov. Gavin Newsom. The move comes as women’s rights advocates push nationwide for affordable access to pads, tampons and other items. California's latest effort builds on a 2017 law requiring low-income schools in disadvantaged areas to provide students with free menstrual products.
A student debt forgiveness program with notoriously complex eligibility rules is getting an overhaul from the Biden administration, with the intent of extending debt relief to thousands of public workers. The Education Department announced Wednesday that it will lift some rules for Public Service Loan Forgiveness while it works on permanent improvements through a rulemaking process. The action will immediately make 22,000 workers eligible for loan cancellation estimated at $1.7 billion, and it will push more than 500,000 closer to debt relief.

The job market recovery for U.S. women faced a setback in September, much as it did about a year ago after many school districts switched to online learning. The data, included in the monthly U.S. employment report released by the Labor Department on Friday, shows that women continue to face a lumpier labor market recovery after being disproportionately affected by job losses during the coronavirus pandemic. It also raises a question over whether the reopening of schools, which likely contributed to this year's improvement from September 2020, is enough on its own to narrow a workforce participation gap between the sexes that widened during the pandemic.
In fairness, I knew a little bit about disruptive technologies but dove into the rabbit hole, reading white papers, listening to podcasts, practicing questions like, “What’s your transactions per second?” and using expressions like, “We can build a dapp for that.” Leapfrog technologies like case management software, ballistics and DNA testing were revolutionary as that continent transitioned from the Inquisitorial model to the adversarial model in criminal procedure. Having trained as a lawyer was of great assistance, particularly because so many blockchain enthusiasts and entrepreneurs may have been simultaneously breaking securities law, immigration law, corporate law, tax law and labor law.
