Did you know Sterling Flight Training is a Veterans’ Affairs-friendly flight training school? We are proud of this part of our pedigree as an institution, as we welcome large numbers of veterans who desire to continue exploring their country and world through aviation.
Flight training benefits are extended to those who want to advance their pilot qualifications. You must have a Private Pilots License (PPL) and valid medical certification before you start training. If you are training under the Montgomery GI Bill the VA will reimburse you for 60 percent of the approved charges.
Sterling Flight Training is eligible to offer Post-9/11 GI Bill benefits through our Part 141 programs and partnership with Liberty University’s School of Aeronautics as a Flight Training Affiliate (FTA).
The Post-9/11 GI Bill program entitles veterans, their spouses, or their dependent children the opportunity to be awarded 100 percent of their educational expenses, including a housing stipend.
GI Bill® is a registered trademark of the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). More information about education benefits offered by VA is available here.
Previously known as the Vocational Rehabilitation Program, this benefit aims to provide disabled veterans with training for a new career. You must meet certain criteria to qualify and meet with a counselor to map out your career objectives. Private pilot certificates are not covered, but all additional training necessary to become a professional pilot could be covered under this opportunity.
Liberty University is proud to serve the men and women of the U.S. Military and offers the following benefits:
