We are excited to share that we have been approved to accept GI Bill funding. Supporting our active military and veterans is important to LIFT, and this recent approval allows us to expand opportunities to do just that.
To use VA GI Bill funding for flight training, you must meet the following qualifications:
What this means is that access to the funding will only be granted once you complete your PPL at LIFT or at another location. The eligibility LIFT qualifies for currently is as a vocational school at a stand–alone Part 141 program. You must be enrolled in your instrument rating and commercial certificate simultaneously to receive access to your GI Bill.
If you are eligible to receive GI Bill benefits, the following must be completed after you have been accepted and enrolled into a class date with us:
Once approval is completed, you will receive up to $14,881.59 for the 2021-22 academic year (effective August 1). As we enroll more veterans the coming months, we hope you are able to join us this summer!
