VA Approval

Department of Veterans Affairs

The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) has approved Coast Flight Training and Management as one of the few entities allowed to receive free funding for military veterans who want and qualify to become pilots.

Flight training at Coast can now be funded for military veterans in a similar way to VA benefits to attend college. In recent years, Congress has approved flight training as a vocational program that qualifies for VA support.

VA will cover 60% of a qualified individual’s flight and instructor costs during the instrument and commercial phases of training and 100% of the written exam and check ride fees. Additionally, Coast Flight Training received a special waiver, which allows for more costs to be covered than is standard. This special waiver was approved given Coasts state of the art fleet infrastructure and academic standards. Students have the option of training in advanced aircraft such as the Cirrus SR20 and SR22 models.

Transfer to Coast Flight Training from another program or school is very easy. Course work and training already complete shall be recognized as part of our program requirements.

If a student is called back to active duty or encounters personal reasons for suspension of training VA benefits will not be taken away. Training can resume anytime without any loss of the student’s VA benefits.

If you are a VA beneficiary or know someone who is, and are interested in learning more about this program, please visit our website or contact our student concierge.
