Veteran's Benefits

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.
