Benefits of flying in the USA with NMC

Flexible schedules

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 late model Cessna 172SP aircraft equipped with Garmin's G1000 glass cockpit avionics suite with autopilot. Additionally, our fleet includes two Piper Arrows, two Piper Aztecs, a Super Cub on floats and a Super Decathlon for tailwheel and aerobatics training.

Other advantages

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, aircraft management companies, corporate flight departments, the US Coast Guard, EEA and air ambulance services.

Lots of support

NMC will assist with Visa/TSA requirements, and can arrange for on-campus housing.
