    Learning to fly airplanes in the United States provides a natural environment to develop Aviation English Proficiency. Classes and flight training are all conducted in English and there is ample opportunity to practice English outside of the training environment. Cost of flight training in the United States is often less than training in other countries.

    In addition to potential cost savings for flight training and English immersion, there is opportunity to see America and learn of its culture.

    The global need for pilots over the next 20 years is staggering. Aviation provides an excellent career opportunity and travel.

    As an aviation graduate, you'll be well placed for a career as a pilot for airlines or other fight operations.

    Unmanned aircraft systems are used in a lot of exciting ways all around the world. Learning about the way they work, how to fly them, and how to maintain them is an important aspect of bringing automation into aviation.

    The United States aviation industry is often used as a standard for many other countries. Studying aviation in the USA and obtaining certificates here will provide opportunities in other countries that are still building their aviation industries.

    A degree in unmanned aircraft systems will give international students the tools they need to be leaders in the area of robotics and automated flight. They will have the tools they need to apply their knowledge to a variety of challenges.

    Unmanned aircraft pilots with college degrees often move into leadership roles at large companies, managing and organizing teams of pilots and maintenance personnel.

    Studying Aviation Maintenance, excellent lecturers who are helpful anytime of the day. Course structures explained brilliantly during the introduction of the initial class. Work load is quite manageable as you get used to the environment.

    Mission Aviation is a Flight, Mission and Mechanic program. It has the largest credit hours required and most is the expensive. But I value this because it has the greater purpose of all.
