In August 2011, Veterans will be able to use their Post 9/11 benefits to cover 100 percent of a Private Pilot Certificate.
NAFC is approved by the Maryland State Approving Agency to offer Veteran Benefits through the Montgomery GI Bill and Post 9/11 Bill in association with a degree program. A Veteran may use his or her benefits for flight training and be reimbursed up to 60 percent of the flight training costs under the Montgomery GI Bill. The NAFC is associated with CCBC. Students enrolled in CCBC’s Air Traffic Control, Flight Management or Flight Training may receive their flight training for a certificate or rating utilizing the Part 141 Jeppesen Syllabi at NAFC. Under the Post 9/11 Bill, Veterans will be reimbursed 100 percent when associated with CCBC.
NAFC is currently approved for the Private Pilot, Instrument Pilot Rating, Commercial Pilot-Single-engine land, Multi-engine land Ratings, Certified Flight Instructor and Certified Flight Instructor – Instrument.
To be eligible you must have at least a Class 2 medical. Veterans Administration regulations mandate that VA benefits may only be paid to those who hold a First or Second Class Medical Certificate dated within the previous 12 months at the time of the reimbursed training. Therefore, be sure to maintain a First or Second Class Medical Certificate while you are under VA-reimbursable training at NAFC.
To use your VA benefits, please contact NAFC.
