In general, there are many pilot schools in each country. At some flight schools, there are not only local students but also foreign or international students who come from various countries. They decide to join foreign pilot schools because they want to get better skill and knowledge and graduate fast. Are you interested in joining a foreign pilot school? If you answer yes, it is a good choice but you should do these first:
Know school in detail
Yup, before joining a pilot school abroad, you should know that school in detail. Find information about its reputation and track record soon. If actually it has bad track record and deals with authorities, you should not trust it. Besides, look for information about tuition fee and facility that you will get there. If tutition fee is too expensive and facility is not adequate, you should also not choose that school. If you want to save some money, check whether school offers scholarship or installment program. Also don’t forget to know whether you can stay at dormitory or should rent a house. If you can stay at dormitory, you can save living cost. In contrast, if you rent a house, you should prepare much budget as accomodation cost.
Ask yourself whether you can adapt well there
As you probably know, not all foreign students can adapt in new environment at pilot school. For this, ask yourself what you can adapt well there. If you still doubt, check what things that are differents from your countries. Basically, there are many differences that you should face, such as: cultural, wheater, language, food, habit, religion, and so on. Learn those differences before going to abroad so you cannot feel shocked when arriving there. If you are not sure that you can adapt and survive there, cancel your plan or choose a pilot school which is located in coutry that is based on your opinion is not different from your country. For example, if you come from Malaysia, you can choose pilot school in Indonesia that is not so different from your country or if you live in Canada, you can choose a pilot school in United States.
Prepare certain plans and solutions to deal with any problems
Nobody knows what will happen in the future. For this, you should prepare certain plans and solutions to deal with any problems that might happen when studying at a pilot school abroad. For example, to deal with any problems with foods, you can prepare food recipes from your country or to face any language or culture, you can prepare dictionary or start building new friendship so you can get help from your friends. If you are ready to face anything that will happen in the future, you will enjoy studying and living in another country.
Last but not least, prepare needed documents a few weeks before going to abroad. You should be a legal student there. Furthermore, follow all procedures and enjoy your life. If you face any problems, find the right solution, don’t solve by using emotion, okay!
