Follow our 11-step admission and enrollment guide. International Flight Students are required to obtain an M1 Flight Student Visa to engage in flight training.
After the enrollment and admission is completed and all required documents have been received, one of our Aviation Academy’s Designated School Officials will issue the DHS Form I-20.
To issue the DHS Form I-20, we will perform a brief interview to ensure the required English language proficiency. A proof of available funds for tuition, housing and living expenses is required.
International flight students and Non-US citizens receiving flight training in the United States generally need a flight student visa.
Given events of the recent past, flight training is monitored especially closely. The purpose of your visit to the United States determines what visa you will need. If you are traveling to the United States solely for flight training, you are considered a student, and you will need a flight student visa.
Please contact the US embassy in your home country, your local US consulate, or the Department of State to determine what kind of visa you will need for your trip. Begin planning for your arrival and stay in Florida well in advance. Some U.S. embassies have wait times of a couple of weeks to apply for a visa interview. The visa requirements sound a lot worse than they actually are. But don’t worry–the visa application process is simpler than it sounds. Along with your training application, we will send a detailed description how to apply for an I-20 form and obtain your M1 student visa.
