Unfortunately, there are fewer finance options for career training than there used to be.  Formerly, student loan firms like Sallie Mae and Key Bank were very active in financing for professional flight training.  Pilot Finance has no connection with these organizations, but we understand their finance and loan programs for career flight training have been cut back and in some cases eliminated entirely.

Some of the larger, long-established career training schools may have arranged special finance programs available exclusively to students at their particular school.  If you have a specific school in mind, you should ask them about financing they can offer.

From a personal finance perspective, home-equity type loans, when available to a student or his or her family, can often be the lowest-cost source of career training funds.  Interest rates for this type of financing are low, and in many cases, tax deductible too.

Pilot Finance is sympathetic to the need for financing of career programs.  We pledge to update this space with any new information we may receive about programs that are offered from reliable sources.
