Airline Transport Professionals (ATP), a Jacksonville, Fla.-based organization that provides advanced pilot training at 23 flight schools nationwide, reported at AOPA Expo yesterday that it purchased 20 Diamond D-Jets and five Diamond flight training devices. In addition, Diamond Aircraft and ATP formed a partnership in which ATP will provide factory-approved initial type ratings and recurrent training on the single-engine very light jet. Diamond said it will make D-Jets available to ATP concurrently with the first D-Jet deliveries, scheduled to begin in 2008, “to provide early training opportunities for D-Jet owners.” Diamond plans to start deliveries of ATP’s aircraft in July 2009. The $1.5 million D-Jet will be equipped with a parachute recovery system from St. Paul, Minn.-based Ballistic Recovery Systems, the same company that provides systems for the Cirrus SR20 and SR22 piston singles.
