International Aviation Partnership

With increasing globalization of the world’s economy it is important to gain international experience and understanding of different countries’ cultures. In particular, as a professional pilot, Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) operator or aviation professional, it is likely that at some point in your career you are going to be working overseas. The International Aviation Partnership program therefore provides local, regional and international students with:

  1. Opportunity to learn about International Aviation via NMC Aviation AVG 201 International Aviation Online Course
  2. Opportunities for American students to study abroad and gain a global endorsement via NMC International Services
  3. International students can earn FAA licenses under F-1 or M-1 visas, with the opportunity to gain experience through optional practical training (OPT).
  4. All students can benefit through cultural exchange and development of an international network of friends and contacts.
