Veterans Benefits Used for Flight Training


Use Your GI Bill® Benefits For Flight School

For veterans seeking to use GI Bill® benefits for flight training, you may use your benefits for Vocational Flight Training directly with Hillsboro Aero Academy.

Vocational Flight Training (Direct Funding)

Hillsboro Aero Academy is approved for direct, limited funding for flight training under the Post-9/11 GI Bill® using the Vocational Flight Training option.

This chapter provides a set amount per academic year, but you need to have your Private Pilot Certificate first. This is separate from the way it works with our collegiate partners and does not include the BAH or allowance for books and supplies. You must contact Hillsboro Aero Academy prior to starting any training if you are planning to use your GI Bill® in this manner. Students who wish to use GI Bill® must follow the approved FAR 141 syllabus and hold a current second class medical and a Private Pilot Certificate.

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 at the official U.S. government Web site at
