Foreign Pilots

America Air Tours offers a package plan for our Foreign Pilots.

If you need to convert to a US pilot certificate we need to start at least 4 months in advance. We then ask that you fly to Denver Colorado 5 days prior to the tour. The first day we will get you checked into a hotel and start getting use to the time change. The second day we will take you to the local FSDO to obtaining your license. Then we will coordinate flying times for you over the next three days to get a full checkout in a rental aircraft. Send us an e-mail for aircraft types and prices that are available to us.

If you have a US pilot certificate we ask you fly in 3 days prior to the tour. we will get you checked into a hotel and start getting use to the time change. We will coordinate flying times for you over the next two days to get a full checkout in a rental aircraft. Send us an e-mail for aircraft types and prices that are available to us.
