Althought flight training is not normally eligible for traditional Federal Title IV Financial Aid (Stafford Loans, Pell Grants, etc.) as flight instruction is a non-collegiate program. AFTC does utilize the services of a variety of lending agencies to provide financing for its students:

  • Meritize Financial – Unlike traditional lenders that rely solely on FICO scores, and other financial records to determine whether to lend to an individual. the Meritize platform considers the full depth of an individual’s academic or military achievements to enhance credit evaluation and potentially improve loan options.  Click here for more information.
