No, all that we ask is that you remain sufficiently in credit with us. Just maintain a pre-agreed upon account balance so that there are no delays or lapses in your flight training. If you are taking one of our “Career Path” courses, we require that you pay at least 25% up-front with the remaining balance to be paid as you train.
We require that all career-path cadets wear their uniforms at least Monday thru Friday. Weekends are your choice to be casual if you prefer. We provide these uniforms when you begin your training. You are intending to become an airline pilot, and should take on such a responsibility as soon as you start!
Both the aircraft and its occupants are insured. However, we strongly recommend obtaining health insurance which covers you for non-flying medical needs before travelling to the U.S. International students can also purchase insurance after they arrive in the United States while they are here training.

To start training for your pilot’s licenses in the U.S., there are no requirements other than to be able to read, write, and speak English sufficiently. However, your own Aviation authority or industry’s requirements may want such degrees or certificates. Simply check your country’s requirements to be sure. Your English language proficiency will be evaluated by one of our staff before we issue the I-20.
