U.S. visas available for international students for flight training: The M-1 Visa.

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security requires all international students to conduct all their flight training only at a Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) flight school which has been approved under Federal Aviation Regulation (FAR) Part 61 . So Welcome to Orange Wings Aviation Academy ® , We are an approved FAR Part 61 school.

M-1 Visa

The M-1 Visa allows students to start their training for an initial 12 months and can then extend for a further 12 months to complete your training if required. It’s beneficial to students who are taking individual training courses rather than professional flight programs. Please be aware that the US Tourist Visa B1/B2 does not allow for flight training in the United Stated of America.

Making the decision to become a pilot is an exciting move. Our admissions experts are here to help guide you each step of the way. From accommodation and transportation, to obtaining your visa to financial advice, we believe that we are the friendliest and most helpful academy around.
