Please note: If you do not have an FAA pilot’s license, you will need to obtain a “Student Pilot” medical certificate.
The goal of this course is for you to obtain your FAA Private Pilot's License. This course does not give you the "Right to Work" status in the Unites States.
In order to flight train in the United States , you are required to have an M-1 Visa. In addition, you will be required to register with the Transportation Security Administration (TSA). Instructions to apply for TSA are attached. TSA fees are not included in the course and are paid directly to TSA.
Once we receive your application and deposit, we will process the I-20 form you need to take to the US Embassy to obtain the M1 visa. All required paperwork will be mailed to you via UPS. The entire M1 visa process can take up to 30 days (or more) to complete. For a list of current wait times, please visit the US Embassy Website.

Student housing is limited, and operates on a “first-come, first-served” basis. Our apartments stay full at all times. It is our goal to move you into a unit as soon as possible but please understand that there are many variables. If a unit is not immediately available it may be necessary to keep you in the hotel for a longer period of time.
WHY CHOOSE ORLANDO FLIGHT TRAINING
There are many factors to consider when choosing a flight school. This can be difficult and confusing, especially if you are considering coming to the U.S. as an international student. Here are a few reasons why we believe Orlando Flight Training is a great place to start your aviation career.
PROFESSIONALISM: Our management staff has over 15,000 hours combined aviation experience, including Military Aviation Transport and Worldwide Heavy Jet civilian route experience. These qualities ensure our operations meet and exceed the highest standards for flight training, maintenance and safety as set forth by the Federal Aviation Administration.
LOCATION: With over 300 flying days each year, Central Florida boasts some of the best weather in the world for flight training. When you are not flying, the Orlando and Space Coast areas have more to offer in entertainment than almost anywhere else in the world.
SCHOOL SIZE: While most of the “big-ticket” flight schools have a total enrollment from 250-500 students, Orlando Flight Training is, by comparison, a much smaller operation. Class sizes are smaller and there is more time for dedicated “one-on-one” instruction. Our current enrollment of full-time students is less than 150.
VISAS: Orlando Flight Training is authorized by the U.S. government to issue the M-1 student visa for our international students. We have a dedicated staff to handle all visa processing.
AFFORDABILITY: Our programs are a full 30-40% less expensive than many of our large competitors. We fly with the same high standards, in similar equipment and based in an arguably better location. So, why are we less expensive? Perhaps you should ask the competitors why they cost so much
It is recommended that once you decide to attend for flight training you book immediately to reserve an opening. Student housing is limited and is based on a “first-come, first-served” basis. So, all that is left is for you to begin the enroll process. Please visit our website to complete our ENROLLMENT FORM. Along with the application, a deposit of $750 is required. This deposit is refunded to you upon successful completion of the course.
Once we receive the enrollment forms and $750 deposit, our Visa Department will process the application and then UPS the paperwork to you within 5-7 working days (if you are a non-US citizen). In the package shipped to you will be a booklet detailing all that you need to know about the visa process and what you will need to bring with you.
