What exactly is "JAA" and not "FAA"? I haven't heard of that one before! There are lots of schools that train foreign pilots in the USA, if that's what you are talking about. "JAA" was not a familiar aviation acronym here in the states, so your question makes no sense.

FAA is what you get to fly in America.
JAA is needed to fly in Europe.

Perhaps someone else can confirm, but you must get your FAA ratings and have them converted by your own country. Contact one of the many flight schools in the US for more info.

Hi,
Western michigan uni used to do an intergrated JAA course to frozen ATPL I beleive... Naples air centre in florida comes highly recommended for JAA PPL and hour building.
The joint aviation authority do not consider the FAA flight crew licensing system to be an equal to the JAR-FCL (not a personal opinion). If you are going to fly in a JAA member state it makes no real sense IMHO to go the FAA license way, then convert. Doing an approved JAA course in the USA does, apart from the mildly different R/T procedures. p.s. the JAA exams are a load of bollocks in general (why the hell do I need to know the dates of the Chicago convention etc...) Also, they take questions for the exams from many countries then translate them for each member state....as you all know some things are lost in translations....
Av8trxx: That is strange as a pilot you haven't heard of what I assume to be the largest (in terms of nations) aviation authority in the world: The JAA encompasses 29 countries, with 19 full members including Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Iceland, Italy, Luxembourg, (Monaco), Holland, Norway, Switzerland, Portugal, Spain, Sweden and the U.K. The rest are candidate members who will become full members in due course. For more info on the JAA, and the mildly confusing interaction between it, and for example the U.K's CAA see:

cheers.
