Flying in the US is cheaper than in Australia for many reasons. The aviation industry is much bigger which brings with it economies of scale and reduced operating costs for every aspect of flight training. Aircraft cost less to operate and therefore hire and when your training is based around hours flown, every dollar counts.
Cheaper flying = more hours. Aviation employment criteria are often based upon minimum hour requirements. There is no easy way around it, you have to build hours and hours cost money. Lower cost flying translates to more flying hours in your log book for the same amount of money. In other words, more Flying for your Buck!
During your pilot training you will fly between 25,000 and 50,000 kilometers. That’s enough to fly around the world! Why not experience and see parts of another country. The USA is perfect for Australian travelers with no language barrier and endless places to visit and experience.
An FAA License is accepted more widely around the world than a CASA license which increases employment opportunities and opens up opportunities which may not have been available to you if you only held a CASA license. To maximise your employment potential we can also assist with converting your completed FAA license to a CASA license allowing you to maintain both.
With more than 13,000 airports, the USA has more airports than any other country in the world making it an aviator’s paradise. Flying opportunities and travel destinations are endless with more facilities and greater accessibility than any other place on earth.
Each of the training providers (Schools) that we refer to, undergo an extensive evaluation and review process to ensure that they meet our standard and expectations. This ensures that you will receive the best level of training and have access to high quality and well maintained aircraft and facilities.
We are currently accepting Expressions of Interest for Australians interested in commencing training in the USA in 2022. The process involves a number of steps therefore we recommend contacting us at least 6 months prior to your intended commencement date.
