In order to work in the US you will need to find an employer who is willing to employ you and is willing to sponsor you for a green card.

In order fo you to be eligable for emplpoyment the employer must take all steps to first fill this job with someone who has legal status to work in the US. The employer must advertise the job in a newspaper or trade journal and give sufficient time to receive a response from applicants.

If no one having legal status qualified shows up that has the credentials to fill that position then after a specified period of time you can have the job.

So the chances are slim if you don't have a work permit.

You can apply for resident alien status if you have are a skilled worker which you will be after training. This approach offers more hope.

You're best bet is to talk with an immigration lawyer.

There's always the hope you will fall in love and get married to an American when you are here.

Good luck !!

Hi Jack-747, Buzz here. Have you read a copy of Aviation Maint. Technology magazine? Lots of interesting ads, etc for the airplane fixing kind of guy.
You can see their web site at They also send out free copies.
Good luck
