Start looking into the Visa requirements. Since 9/11 the issuing of visas for flight training of foreign nationals in the US has understandably been tightened up.
I think there is a bit of a paperwork mountian to fill in....don't leave this to the last minute, as various security vetting proceedures have to be carried out. I believe the whole proceedure can take a few months.
