Real Answers from Real Pilots

Job placement

Hello to all,
I am an international student considering to join ATP in January most likely I will have to apply for a loan at Sallie Mae or Wells Fargo but before I do this I would like to know about Job availability and placement after my training in order to repay this loan since I am not an American citizen. Every answer is accepted I would really appreciate the help.

Jordan,

To work as a pilot in the US you must be either a citizen OR have resident status. Without either you would not be able to work nor would ATP be able to help place you.

Adam,
Thank you for the reply so what can I do to pursue this ?

Jordan,

Either you have to obtain US residence status OR seek employment in your own country.

Adam

Thank you for the advice

Is it possible that atp would help to sponsor for H1b visa for international students?

Sehaj,

No because there’d be no point. No one can work as a pilot in the US unless they are either a citizen or a permanent resident. In short the is no Visa that will allow someone to work as a pilot.
