GI Programs

Veterans Programs

VA benefits are available for those interested in becoming a commercial pilot, and CTI Professional Flight Training is approved for reimbursement under the GI Bill®

at both locations.  For those covered under the Post 9-11 GI Bill®, the VA will reimburse a maximum of $15,497.15 in flight training costs per academic year (August to July).  For those covered under the previous Montgomery GI Bill®, the VA will reimburse up to 60% of eligible training costs.  Training eligible for VA reimbursement includes:  Instrument Rating, Commercial Pilot License Single-Engine, Commercial Pilot License Multi-Engine, Certified Flight Instructor (CFI), CFI Instrument, and Multi-Engine Instructor.

To be eligible for VA reimbursement, you must have a current Private Pilot's License and a Second-Class Medical Certificate (or a First-Class Medical Certificate if pursuing an ATP Certificate).

Call either of our CTI locations (TN 901.495.2583 / FL 954.938.3043) or contact us via this quick electronic VA Form, and we'll be happy to help you through the process.
