PEA’s Professional Programs are designed to provide Domestic and International students with the skillset, ratings, and flight hours needed to be hired by the many job opportunities within the multifaceted aviation industry. International Students are eligible for an F-1 Visa by taking either of the Professional Programs. The F-1 visa provides 12 months of OPT after completing your training, which allows you to be a paid flight instructor in order to build the flight hours required by Airlines.
PROFESSIONAL PROGRAM I
The Professional Program I’s core purpose is to provide students with the basic requirements to have not only the required ratings to be hired by an Airline, but also provide a very efficient way to meet the minimum flight hour requirements. During training, students will obtain their Instrument, Commercial, Multi-Engine add on, Certified Flight Instructor, and Certified Flight Instructor Licenses/Ratings. Upon completion, the pilot will be qualified to work as a flight instructor in a single-engine aircraft.
This course is uniquely customized to ensure it directly meets the training needs of the professional pilot. A rigorous combination of hands-on maneuver-based and scenario-based training profiles both increase the student’s fundamental flying skills as well as directly complement the rapid development of aeronautical decision making.
