Sarasota Flight School Welcomes Foreigners

Posted: September 29th, 2012 | Author: | Filed under: Sarasota Immigrants | Tags: , , , | 2 Comments »

Cirrus Aviation, Inc. has been the leader in flight training at the Sarasota Bradenton International Airport since 1994.  Well known for friendly staff and quality instruction, their school consistently produces safe pilots who now work for commercial airlines, are aircraft owners, or just recreational enthusiasts.  Whether it’s for pleasure or career, they offer the programs future pilots need to learn to fly.

This is one of the types of aircraft Cirrus uses for flight training.

Sarasota offers an optimal location for flight training.  We are fortunate to have beautiful coastlines (Sarasota is home to Siesta Key Beach, voted one of the top 10 beaches in the world) weather for year-round training, tower controlled runways, and light commercial traffic.  With nearly perfect weather all year round, it is always a good time to come to Florida and fly.  And, when students are not in the sky, there are plenty of activities to enjoy on the ground.

All students who are not US Citizens or Permanent US Residents need to have the appropriate visa for flight training as well as TSA (Transportation Security Administration) approval.  Permanent US Residents also need TSA approval, although a visa is not required.
