VA Benefits/College Programs
VA Flight Training Programs for qualified veterans of the armed forces are available at SDFTI. Training courses offered include the Instrument/Commercial, ATP Certificate, and all three levels of the Certified Flight Instructor ratings as well as the Multi-Engine rating. Once the VA applicant receives their "Certificate of Eligibility" from the VA, there is zero money out of pocket while you train. The VA will reimburse the school directly. If you are former military or about to leave the armed forces and interested in a career in aviation or just wish to enhance your present civilian qualifications or ratings please give us a call at 858.569.1822 for detailed information.
FAA regulations for the ATP certificate have been revised and go into effect August 1, 2014. All applicants must have completed the ATP written exam based upon the new regulations beginning this date.
Eligible veterans can also choose to enroll in our college degree program while receiving flight training. This program includes the Private Pilot Certificate as a prelude to all other FAA certificates and ratings. Veterans will receive a monthly living allowance once enrolled in this program. This program will prepare you for an Airline Career.
