# Does flight training have any impact on my H1B visa?

I'm on an H1B visa, working in the IT industry and I need to know if I take flight training after getting an AFSP clearance from the TSA, does that affect my current visa or IT job?

• flying has no special impact on your job: how you choose to spend your free time is none of your employer's business In most cases, and for most people, yes. I have talked to people, particularly in the financial sector who are specifically barred by employment agreement from participating in many outside-work activities. Honestly, I don't think pilot training would be one of the barred activities, but the statement is a little bit too blanket. i.e. Don't let random strangers on the internet get you fired & risk deportation. Be sure it's OK with your employer. May 8 '17 at 20:15
