Factors such as less congested airspace, no surcharge taxes on aircraft fuel, no airspace usage fees, and moderate climate all contribute to a more cost-effective way to build flight hours and prepare pilots for advanced training in the United States.
Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Pilot Licenses are respected and validated around the world as International Civilian Aviation Organization (ICAO) Pilot Licenses. Most FAA-licensed pilots stay within their own U.S. market; however, their training and licenses are so highly respected throughout the world, that some have ventured abroad to fly in other countries. 97% of the world’s pilots are trained in the U.S.A. then return home to convert their pilot’s license.
