Your stay in New York - the heart of the world will be something you will always remember not only because of the flight experience you will gain with us but also because of the great life experience that only comes with living in NYC.

Your I20 Visa documentation will be ready within a week and your interview will be in a few weeks. You can start your training in the U.S.A. practically within a month after your initial application. We currently teach students from every corner of the world and this includes Middle Eastern, European, Asian, African, South American, Australian students and more. Our location just outside of New York City makes it very convenient for International students to learn to fly and have leisure time as well within such a diverse ethnic community. Chances are you will know someone who has moved from your country to New York.

We have successfully trained pilots who are now flying for many International Airlines Worldwide. Academy of Aviation is a Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Approved Flight School offering training in accordance with FAA Part 141 and Part 61 Regulations.

In order to begin flight training at Academy of Aviation, you will  register with TSA and be entered into the Student and Exchange Visitor Information System (SEVIS).

  2. How long will this take, and what will it cost?

    At Academy of Aviation, our students make up their own flying and study schedule. We are flying 7 days a week, 24 hours a day. Our office is open 7 days a week from 7:00-19:00. Everyone works and learns at different rates. Some students will come to us with no aviation experience, while others will come to us with a great deal of aviation experience. Therefore, it is impossible to give a standard quote for everyone. Realistically, you can expect to complete your training within a year to a year and a half. Although, it will depend upon weather and student skill/preparation level.
