Crew Pilot Training (CPT) has a 40-year history training B-737 pilots for all major airlines. Our Staff of, Instructors and Examiners ( FAA TCE’s) are retired from an array of all Airlines. The Boeing 737 aircraft is a COMMON airplane which means the B-737 type rating is valid for all 737 aircraft. CPT offers a differences course for the pilots that require training on a specific series aircraft for insurance purposes. For the Commercial rated pilots wanting to add the ATP license, you can attend our ATP-CTP course or bring the original copy of your ATP written examination and CPT will add the ATP at NO extra charge.


Manuals and courseware can be downloaded from our ops website (password protected).
Note: CPT uses and will furnish iPads for both G/S & sims.

  1. B-737 FCOM.
  2. Colored cockpit panels.
  3. 40 hours of Distance Learning CBT’s through CPAT.

USA FAA Commercial Pilot license, Multi-Engine with Instruments. For the pilot adding the FULL ATP with the type rating reference FAR 61.159 flight experience and for the pilot applying for the ATP RESTRICTED. Valid civilian FIRST class medical ONLY if applying for Veterans benefits. For the student attending without Veterans Benefits, NO medical is required. Google FAR 61.64 (2) regulation for more information on how to qualify for entry into the B-737 simulator only program. You must meet at least one of the different rules to qualify for entry or a limitation of
25-hour limitation will be added to your license. Note: Sorry but FAR 142 schools cannot remove Center Line Thrust Limitation (CLT). The FAA must remove the limitation.


Training Center locations vary between the Classic and NG. The Classic locations are Sanford, FL, and Miami. The NG locations are Dallas and Miami. Miami, FL. is a cruise-ship city, which means NO hotels accommodations for a good portion of the year, so we do limited training in Miami to off-season cruise months.


Plan 12 days but personally I would add 1 extra day for what-ifs. The course will require 40 hours of distance learning prior to the first day of class through CpaT. Once enrolled and confirmed in a class Operations (Ops) will release a password for downloading the FAA approved course, and other material for class. When you are within 90 days of class start you will receive a password for the Distance Learning information from CpaT.
