Diamond Aircraft is pleased to announce that Phoenix East Aviation, Inc. of Daytona Beach, Florida, has selected the DA42 NG for its multi-engine training fleet.
With an initial order of two DA42 NGs, Phoenix East Aviation also plans to upgrade their existing DA42 TDIs with Austro Engine AE 300 powerplants and will eventually migrate their entire multi-engine fleet to the DA42 NG. Ghassan Reslan, CEO of Phoenix East, will accept delivery of their first DA42 NG this week at AOPA Summit.
“The Diamond DA42 NG offers our students, who are pursuing professional pilot careers, the most advanced multi-engine training platform in the industry,” said Mr. Reslan. “With the DA42 NG’s state-of-the-art engines, airframe, and avionics technologies, our students will be well prepared for careers as jet pilots.”
With an all-carbon airframe and FADEC controlled, single power lever, twin turbo-diesel Austro AE 300 engines, along with the Garmin G1000 integrated glass cockpit including the GFC 700 Automated Flight Control System and Synthetic Vision Technology (SVT), the DA42 NG is general aviation’s safest and most technologically advanced light twin.
“With the introduction of the DA42 NG, Diamond Aircraft is pleased to expand its relationship with Phoenix East Aviation,” said David Moser, Director of Fleet Sales for Diamond Aircraft. “With unprecedented fuel economy, stellar performance, and exceptional reliability, we are confident that Phoenix East will be thrilled with their selection of the DA42 NG.”

PEA Approved for F-1 Visa for Pilot Training Students

December 3, 2009 1 comment

Daytona Beach, Florida, USA –- Phoenix East Aviation (PEA) announces approval by the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services for F-1 Visa form authorization for international pilot training students.

F-1 student visas now available through Phoenix East AviationF-1 student visas now available through Phoenix East Aviation

The F-1 Visa (Academic Student) allows a foreign student to enter the United States as a full-time student at a U.S. government approved academic institution. This visa also requires the student to be enrolled in a program that culminates in a professional certificate or college degree; because Phoenix East Aviation is a nationally accredited pilot training academy with established qualifications and high standards of education, authorization was given by the U.S. government to accept eligible international students under this F-1 program.  There are only three professional pilot training academies in the U.S. that are allowed by the federal government to participate in the F-1 student visa program.

In this program, the student pilot enters a comprehensive professional pilot training program. This “ab initio” student begins with zero flying experience and progresses through the program, achieving the Commercial Pilot Certificate with Instrument and Multi-engine Ratings – and then continues training for the Certified Flight Instructor, Certified Flight Instructor Instrument, and Multi-engine Instructor ratings.

Upon successful completion of this full training program, a PEA graduate may interview for a position as a PEA flight instructor and upon acceptance become a paid employee of Phoenix East Aviation, gaining practical flight experience as he/she continues building flight hours and acquiring the skills required to achieve the Airline Transport Pilot Certificate, which is the highest aviation certification given by the FAA. The F-1 Visa, under its Optional Practical Training, allows such employment during this advanced training and time-building phase.
