Prior to starting training each student will be required to obtain a US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Airman Medical Certificate. Although a medical certificate can be obtained in the US, it is strongly recommended that each student obtain their First Class US FAA Airman Medical Certificate prior to traveling to the US to ensure that they are medically fit to begin training upon arrival. Designated FAA Medical Examiners that are authorized to issue US FAA Airman Medical Certificates are located in many countries outside of the United States. Locate one in your country at the following link: http://www.faa.gov/pilots/amelocator/.
Prior to beginning flight training each student must provide proof of health and accident insurance that will cover the student during their entire stay in the US.
