Benefits of flying in the USA with NMC
We can design a course that meets your schedule and training requirements. You will have your own Flight Instructor who will work with you on a daily basis. We also have our own British Certified Flight Instructor who is running the International Aviation Program and who will ensure smooth running of your visit.
Also, our Aviation Director and Chief Flight Instructor are available on a regular basis to assist you with questions regarding the program and training requirements.
Wide range of aircraft
Our training fleet includes 2009 Cessna 172 G1000 glass cockpit (with autopilot) planes, complex single engine/multi-engine planes, seaplane, aerobatic and tailwheel aircraft.
In addition to obtaining valuable experience in Michigan's four season climate, we have strong ties with other commercial aviation companies such as regional airlines, airport management companies, corporate air services, Coast Guard, EEA and air ambulance services.
We also organize visits to the EEA Oshkosh Airshow, NASA Space center, aviation museums and fly-in's so that our students gain a thorough understanding of the aviation industry and all the opportunities available.
A complete experience
All FAA and EASA / JAR-FCL flying hour requirements will be obtained at NMC's Aviation Department in Traverse City, Michigan. FAA check rides will be carried out in Michigan, while final EASA / JAR-FCL conversion/practical skills test will take place in the UK at one of NMC's UK partner flight schools.
Lots of support
NMC will assist with Visa/TSA requirements, and can arrange for on-campus housing. We also have an active International Student Club that will help you feel at home while here.
