Santiago, Chile

About the Course

This program was developed with three learning objective in mind; 1. Because our Professional Pilot and Aviation Administration students have a big concern about job placement in a highly competitive sector in the US, elite airlines like Lan-Chile and others, are constantly seeking to recruit US pilots and are offering US based work, like New York, Florida, and California. Today, US Commercial Pilots are in high demand in many countries, and since the international language in aviation is English it makes it more attractive for many US Pilots. 2. One of the classes being taught in Santiago is Specialty Flying, where the students will learn different sectors of the aviation industry outside the Airlines. It is very hard, if not impossible, to have a field trip to the US Airforce Base, with this tour and military demonstration the students will learn all the additional possibilities in work placing after graduation. 3. Many students never traveled outside the US, this program will also be a cultural learning experience.
