In order to receive the Airline Transport Pilot Helicopter certificate, a pilot must demonstrate superior command of the helicopter in the instrumental flight conditions, have substantial flight experience and be of good moral character. An ATP rating is a testament to the pilot’s professionalism and makes them more competitive on the job market.
