Welcome to Cirrus Aviation, where you can get excellent flight training and career preparation on your schedule, and in a location that is a holiday paradise. With nearly flawless weather the whole year round, it is always a perfect time to come to Florida and fly. Students benefit from an FAA Air Traffic Control Tower, light commercial airline traffic for realistic training, nearby Class B and uncontrolled airspace for a variety of flight training environments, and superb scenery with beautiful beaches below. Sarasota is home to Siesta Key Beach, voted one of the top 10 beaches in the world. So when you’re not in the sky, you can enjoy studying poolside or on the beach.
VISA and TSA requirements. All students who are not US Citizens and who are not Permanent US Residents need to have the appropriate visa for flight training as well as TSA (Transportation Security Administration) approval. Permanent US Residents also need TSA approval, although a visa is not required.
