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 $12,554 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).
