The European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) has certified the National Test Pilot School (NTPS) as the first 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 to provide Flight Test Training as an ATO for EASA Member State Test Pilot Ratings.

Pilots now have a viable path towards getting or upgrading their test pilot ratings in Europe for the first time since the EASA regulations went into effect in 2014.

NTPS President and CEO Allen L. Peterson stated “This is a great milestone for NTPS, our customers, and test pilots in Europe and around the world. Since our training has been independently evaluated and certified by one of the world’s premiere aviation organizations, the students and customers can rest assured that the quality and standardization of NTPS training is completely verified not just fancy websites or exaggerated marketing claims.”

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.
