ATO Operations

Setting up a training center is a costly and time consuming task. For Training centers partners who want to avoid the burden of setting up a complete ATO, ETOPS can propose two different services from operations support to complete setup.

ATO Operations support

ETOPS can propose to Training center partners a unique “Profit Share” model for Type Rating provisioning

Under this type of agreement, each party considers their direct costs and the margin (after deducting costs) is shared and the Training center is able to offer EASA approved Type Rating courses through ETOPS ATO approval and the use of ETOPS training syllabi and instructors.
This is the easiest way to be able to offer EASA approved Type Rating courses without the cost associated with implementing a new EASA compliant ATO from scratch.

Profit share model
Win-win situation

ATO fees are applicable only when a Type Rating is sold
No Type Rating sold, no cost applied, no risk for the training organisation

No new ATO implementation required
As soon as access to an appropriately qualified FSTD is identified and added to the ETOPS ATO approval, Type rating marketing can start immediately

Marketing synergy
Each party can provide the other with Type rating and FSTD utilisation opportunities

TRI/TRE & SFI provisioning
Never be short of instructors by utilising own ETOPS network of instructors

ETOPS can support ATO startup operations from scratch, or expand ATO operations with Type rating training through ETOPS ATO.

ATO Setup
