Convert your foreign licenses to FAA certificate
Pan Am Academy offers conversion courses from your foreign pilots license to FAA. We aim to provide the most up to date information, but please check with the appropriate regulatory authority for the latest and most current regulations for your conversion. There are a couple of options for those who wish to fly in the US and obtain an FAA certificate. If you are planning to rent an aircraft and build hours, a foreign license verification is recommended. If you would like to add additional FAA certificates/ratings, a more formal conversion would be recommended. Customized quotations for a specific conversion can be given by contacting us.
