Non-immigrant in Collins aerospace

New foofi

I had recently been laid off due to budget issues and I got an offer from Collins aerospace as an Embedded SWE. I'm grateful.
But the tech they are using at the moment is really outdated. ADA language, I don't know if anyone uses this.
I have big aspirations to join FAANG someday. Being a non-immigrant and in the aerospace domain, I don't know very many companies sponsoring VISA. I had great fun developing drivers in my masters, wish I could stay in that domain.
How should I go about my future ?

    I was an ADA developer on embedded systems too. I did side projects that were more relevant that then led to FANG.

      Mobile app dev on stuff I was interested in. Mobile is basically an embedded target with HW sensors. So seemed like a logical fit. Just learned by going through online tuts and docs.
