US Aviation Academy’s Vocational Professional Pilot Program is the fastest way to start your career as an airline pilot. Starting with no prior experience in aviation, in less than a year, you can be a Commercial Multi-Engine pilot with an Instrument Rating. Well qualified students can graduate in just 7-9 months. Our FAA Part 141 courses are ICAO compliant and meet most country’s requirements. US Aviation Academy also has FAA Self-Examining Authority, meaning all check rides are performed by our experienced staff, instead of by outside examiners. This reduces the time and cost of training. Our large fleet of over 100 aircraft also ensures ample opportunity to fly.
You’ll be taken care of by US Aviation staff from the day you arrive. We provide housing, transportation, and all the items you’ll need to succeed in training. Staff will assist in providing I-20s, TSA approval, and guidance for your aviation career along the way.
