Flight career as an international student

Dear All.

I’m an international student who is attending UCLA. I want to learn pilot program because of my future and it is also my dream. However, I don’t know if I would do with this, I would get a job possible as an international student. If who someone already did like my situation, please let me have your comment. Thank you

Jo,

Welcome to the forum. There are many international pilot jobs out there (particularly in Asia) for trained and licensed pilots. However I’m not sure exactly what you’re asking?

Dear Adam.

I just prefer get a job in the US. Internatinal pilot in Asia is my second
option. Would you let me have any information about it?

Joe,

As long as you can obtain a work visa and TSA background clearance there’s no reason you would have no problem flying in the US.

Dear Adam,

Thank you so much for your reply. Is there any other international student
already through the method that you said?

Jo,

Plenty of pilots have immigrated to the US and are flying for US airlines. Like Adam said, you will need to obtain the proper work visa or become a permanent resident or citizen. I have flown with many international pilots at my airline, you definitely would not be the first.
