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).
