There are many reasons that smart, aspiring pilots chose flight training in the U.S. In places like Florida, the perfect flying weather means you can complete your training faster and be ready for that job with an airline sooner. In addition to the weather factor, it is typically also about 50% less costly than training in Europe. And in other parts of the world, the training and certification that is needed to prepare you for employment as a professional pilot are simply not available in all areas and countries, for example, training for a Commercial Pilot Certificate or training for an Airline Transport Pilot Certificate. And often the training aircraft at many flight training academies in the U.S. are most suitable to high quality flight training. And having trained at a U.S. quality flight training academy is bound to enhance your resume.
As part of your flight training, you will fly “cross country,” which are minimum specified flights away from your home airport. This is not always easy to do in some countries in training aircraft. However, in the U.S. there are approximately 19,950 airports: Yes, that’s the correct number. Over 5,000 of them have paved runways and 376 airports provide regularly scheduled airline service.
Plus, in the U.S., there is a history of quality training in accordance with high standards of education and safety.
So why should you consider flight training in the U.S.? The cost, the availability of training, the quality and standards of training – and in Florida the ability to train faster (which also means it costs you less money) because of the fine weather. At Phoenix East Aviation, for example, you can typically fly 360 days a year. Want to learn more? Go to www.pea.com.
