    Hi everyone,

    I am Russian but currently living in London.
    I want to take flight course to get CPL and then airline pilot job in the US.

    The issue is that I do not have right to work in the US.
    So, imagine I get CPL but as long as my visa expires I need to leave the country.

    Even if I have F1 visa for 12 months after the course and manage to work as Flight Instructor to build hours…
    Being honest, how many chances I have to find an airline company who will sponsor my visa for this year working as FI?



    Sorry, but Epic Flight Academy can only assist student with M-1 visa which does not allow you to work in USA but only to study full-time. Many Epic students from outside of the US will return to their home country to seek employment once they have completed their pilot training at Epic Flight Academy. Every airline has its own set of hiring requirements, and we encourage our students to review a particular airline’s hiring requirements before applying for a First Officer or Captain position.

    To check your eligibility, you can start here:
