SkyEagle is able to accommodate International Students wanting to study Professional Pilot Training in the United States. Below are the common FAQs for our incoming international students wanting to begin their training from zero time:
As of November 10, 2018, we can only honor a SkyEagle sponsored M1 Student Visa for our international students coming into the United States for flight training.
An international student must provide proof of funds via a bank statement prior to the start of the M1 Student Visa application process.
Once the student receives TSA clearance and an M1 Visa, training may begin at any time being we train on a 1-1 basis around the student’s daily schedule.
Unfortunately, we are unable to provide or refer financial institutions to international students. Financial arrangements must be made in the student’s home country prior to the start of the program.
Unfortunately, we are unable to extend the offer of employment to international students. However, we do have local and international referral sources we can make employment recommendations to.
Our management team and instructors are the most experienced in the industry contributing to a 90 percent-first time pass rate. Competitively priced, we are also one of the most flexible flight school in the country when it comes to scheduling and payment as we are focused on the needs and success of the student.
There are examiner fees, pilot supplies, and living expenses not included in the course outline. International students also have immigration and TSA fees not specified in the course catalog.
TSA — Transport Security Administration, provides the screening process to allow foreign students to commence flight training to obtain an FAA Pilot’s Certificate. For more information on starting the TSA process please click here: https://www.flightschoolcandidates.gov. An international student may not conduct flight training until they have received the required TSA approval.
Yes. Being that we are flexible and work around the student’s schedule, one may conduct training in various stages and return to finish the program at a later date.
Yes. We have student housing available (Rooms in our Single-Family Home) as well as corporate accounts with local hotels.
One must seek employment in their home country that would allow a pilot to be hired with 250 hours. If this is difficult, the graduate has the option to build time here for a special discounted block rate which would make their log book more attractive to potential employers upon returning home.
A graduate of the program is unable to stay in the US unless they are able to obtain a new visa as the current M1 Student Visa status would be on the verge of expiration.
The FAA certificate is universal and recognized by almost all major air carriers as it permits a pilot to fly any type of N-registered aircraft anywhere in the world. An FAA certificate is also easily converted to another country’s pilot certificate if it is required in that particular region.
One may send an email to [email protected] to request an enrollment form and other pertinent documents required for enrollment. There are also international instructions that a student will be provided prior to enrollment.
