commerical pilot in usa part 61?

November 30, 2009

hi
i intend to start my flying training in the usa and actually i ve read about to programs FAA part 61 & FAA part 141 ( for international students) and by comparing the prices i found part 61 is muchcheaperr & saving time. and one day i met a a pilot who is aforeignerr and he studied part 61 and i want to do so .. so what r the procedures and what r the restrictions to go in part 61 and by the way i am not an american but so also if there are a flight school who can help me to get the visa it will be welcomed if not no problem … plz who has intention for an advanced help can email me at besbes85@hotmail.com ,,
let me summarize the question
1- costs
2- procedures & restrictions

If you can get a visa or otherwise meet the entry requirements then you can attend any school that you please. If you need a student visa, then, the last time that I checked, they were only available to students of 141 schools.

I’d look into ATP in Florida, they have an arm that is 141, and, in my experience, they are pretty good.

Whatever you do, be careful. Many of the schools that cater to foreign students specialize in very low quality flight training at a very high price. Do your homework.

    Cost will vary, but usually plan to spend around $40,000 on the training, maybe a little more. The procedures are going to very slightly from school to school but will all follow the TSA procedure.

    I do some foreign training so feel free to contact me
