Question American Flight Training

Hey guys,

This has probably already come up, I just cant find a post relating to it, anyways I am a British teenager who is considering a career at 36,000 ft. However as many of you's know flight training is very expensive, and I am just looking for any advice about training with an American Flying School, and would I still get a good opportunity to fly with a British Airline, e.g Easyjet or Thomas Cook in the future.

Thanks for any help in advance.

It's a stupid idea to learn flying in US but want to work in Europe.

You need to covert your FAA ATPL to JAA ATPL, retake most exams and flight training. It's a waste of money and time

FAA to JAA pilot license conversion

Hold a valid JAR-FCL Class 1 medical
Obtain a Radio Telephony Operator License
Undertake JAA ATPL groundschool training at an approved Flight Training Organization (FTO)
Pass all 14 JAA ATPL theoretical knowledge examinations
Undergo and pass Type-Rating/MCC course in approved TRTO (Type Rating Training Organization)
Pass the ATPL skill test must be with or observed by a CAA Flight Operations Inspector
