International students coming to America for flight training or academic studies are required to have a student visa.
If you are just visiting America to fly individual flight hours you only need a tourist visa or a visa waiver.
The visa waiver program allows you to enter the United States for up to 90 days without applying for a tourist visa.
However no extension of stay is permitted and you are not allowed to change your visa status while in America.
Please contact your local American Embassy or travel agency for complete details.
