Can work like a pilot in USA with work visa

Hi everyone! My name is George! I’m in USA right now on working visa and my question is can I be enroll in any Flight School to get my training to become a Commercial Pilot and after graduation will I be able to get a job just with my work visa?

Have a good one !
thx

George,

In order to work as a pilot in the US you must be a citizen or have resident status. Not just a work visa.

hey thx! but how about training? Can I be enroll in a school?

George,

You can train but before you start you will need either an M-1 or an F-1 Visa AND an extensive TSA background and clearance. For more info I’d start here: https://atpflightschool.com/international/enrollment.html
