Rotorcraft Report: SRT Approved for Student Exchange
Bakersfield, Calif.-based SRT Helicopters has achieved approval under the M-1 Visa student and exchange visitor program. SRT becomes the first non-Part 141 flight training school in the U.S. to receive the designation, which follows site visits from representatives of the departments of Homeland Security, State, and Immigration and Customs.
"Following an extensive evaluation and an on-site visit from representatives from the Department of Homeland Security, Department of State, and Department of Immigration and Customs, we achieved a significant milestone in flight training," says Christian Gadbois, president and CEO. "We see the M-1 Visa approval as a significant accomplishment and a validation of our training program."
