The shortage of commercial pilots in the United States has started. The estimated amount of qualified pilots needed per year range around 10,000. Obtaining the right to work in the United States is a lengthy process. Below are a few opportunity paths for foreign pilots of any experience to obtain their license and experience in the United States.
These paths allow foreign pilots to launch their pilot career by attending in person some college courses (if necessary depending on previous education) while obtaining a 1 to 3 year work authorization to apply to any aviation company.
Once working for an American airline, executive company, cargo company or flight school, these airlines and companies can sponsor pilots to obtain a several year H work visa which can lead to obtaining a green card after a few years.
