Flight Training for Veterans

department of veterans affairsWe are proud to announce that Aviator College of Aeronautical Science & Technology is now approved to enroll students for Flight Training under the Chapter 33 Benefits and Post 9/11 Benefits.

In order to qualify, you must have a private pilot’s license and valid medical certificate prior to beginning training. The Veteran’s Association (VA) will reimburse you for 60% of the approved charges.

Payments are issued after the training is completed and the school submits information to the VA.

The Post-9/11 GI Bill

As of August 1, 2009, The Post-9/11 GI Bill is in effect and will provide financial support for education and housing to individuals with at least 90 days of service on or after September 11, 2001. You can also qualify if you received an honorable discharge due to a service-connected disability after 30 days.

Chapter 33 Benefits

The Chapter 33 Benefits are calculated by taking the number of days of active duty after September 10, 2001 and subtracting the days served on active duty for entry level and skill training – only if you served less than 910 days.

Choosing an education benefit program that’s right for you

Choosing a benefit program can be a difficult decision because it’s based on so many factors, including the type of education or training you plan to take and the amount of benefits received under each program.

If you are eligible for the Post-9/11 GI Bill and two or more other benefit programs, you must give up one of the other benefits.

Use your Veterans Benefits to become a pilot

By taking advantage of the many benefits available to you as a veteran, you can take control of your future and continue to contribute to your country. Commercial pilots are in high demand and your previous experience and training gives you a significant advantage. Start your exciting new career today.
