Veterans Benefits Used for Flight Training


Use Your GI Bill® Benefits For Flight School

Hillsboro Aero Academy contracts with Liberty University (only at our Las Vegas Campus) to provide the airplane flight training for their aviation degree program so you can use your Post-9/11 GI Bill® directly through the college.

Post-9/11 GI Bill®

The Post-9/11 GI Bill® is the most commonly used veterans benefit here at Hillsboro Aero Academy. You will feel right at home among students and instructors who have served in all branches of the military, as well as students from all around the world.

Our partnership with Liberty University allows for the integration of their degree programs and Hillsboro Aero Academy’s airplane flight training. This partnership allows students to obtain an associate’s or bachelor’s degree while completing your flight training with Hillsboro Aero Academy. This program is only available for airplane training at our Las Vegas Campus. We do not currently have a helicopter training partnership.


The Post-9/11 GI Bill® is for veterans who have served after 9/11. Depending on how much time you served/were active after 9/11, the VA will pay up to 100% of your tuition and fees through our collegiate partners’ degree programs, up to the school syllabus minimums. However, the covered courses do vary between the college programs.
