Hello,

I am international High School student but am interested in becoming a pilot in the US. Are the requirements/steps any different? In my country the Dominican Republic, I am able to study in the aviation program straight out of high school as my college degree. If I were to complete that here what other training/education would I need to become a pilot in the US? My family in the US reside in NYC.

Anne,

You need to obtain all the required FAA licenses and ratings. Please visit our FAQ section for details on the process.

Anne,

To work in the US as a pilot, you will need to either be a US citizen or a US permanent legal resident (green card).
