F-1 student visas now available through Phoenix East Aviation

The F-1 Visa (Academic Student) allows a foreign student to enter the United States as a full-time student at a U.S. government approved academic institution. This visa also requires the student to be enrolled in a program that culminates in a professional certificate or college degree; because Phoenix East Aviation is a nationally accredited pilot training academy with established qualifications and high standards of education, authorization was given by the U.S. government to accept eligible international students under this F-1 program.  There are only three professional pilot training academies in the U.S. that are allowed by the federal government to participate in the F-1 student visa program.

In this program, the student pilot enters a comprehensive professional pilot training program. This “ab initio” student begins with zero flying experience and progresses through the program, achieving the Commercial Pilot Certificate with Instrument and Multi-engine Ratings – and then continues training for the Certified Flight Instructor, Certified Flight Instructor Instrument, and Multi-engine Instructor ratings.

Upon successful completion of this full training program, a PEA graduate may interview for a position as a PEA flight instructor and upon acceptance become a paid employee of Phoenix East Aviation, gaining practical flight experience as he/she continues building flight hours and acquiring the skills required to achieve the Airline Transport Pilot Certificate, which is the highest aviation certification given by the FAA. The F-1 Visa, under its Optional Practical Training, allows such employment during this advanced training and time-building phase.
