I am interested in your Professional Pilot Program and I am wondering if I would be a good fit. A little bit about myself and my situation, I am currently 28 years old with a 4 year degree in political science. I currently work full time for the U.S. Army National Guard. I will be deploying to the middle east for a year in July 2022 and upon my return I am looking to make a career change. I am considering leaving the military and pursuing a career as a commercial pilot.
I have two main questions about your flight school. First do you know if I would be able to use my Post 9-11 GI Bill to help pay for schooling? Second, I will still have military obligations to fulfill in the U.S. Army National Guard and I want to know if I would be able to fulfill those obligations while still attending the flight academy full time?April 17, 2022 at 1:15 pm #49037Jonell – Epic StaffKeymaster
Please note that currently, the GI Bill is not supporting flight training.
Previously, the Post 9/11 GI Bill (Chapter 33) directly reimbursed the flight school for some of the instructional costs of flight training for eligible VA students. The Montgomery GI Bill (Chapters 30, 1606 and 1607) directly reimbursed the eligible VA student for some of the instructional costs of flight training. For more information regarding the benefit for which you may be eligible, visit the G.I. Bill website. https://www.benefits.va.gov/gibill/
