Pilot's Licenses

Notice to Students:
All non-United States citizens are now required to complete validation through the Alien Flight Student Program before beginning ANY flight training, including first lessons. Validation includes, but is not limited to: background checks, fingerprinting and a waiting period. The Alien Flight Student Program ensures that Non-U.S. Citizen candidates seeking training at flight schools regulated by the Federal Aviation Administration do not pose a threat to aviation or national security. To begin this process, please visit the following site: www.flightschoolcandidates.gov. For questions, please contact the Alien Flight Student Program Help Desk at (571) 227-4544.
