Veterans Educational Benefits

Veterans who are unsure of their eligibility or have questions about their entitlement should contact the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (1-888-GIBILL1). Eligible students enrolled in flight training at Hummingbird Aviation must maintain satisfactory academic progress in the program in which they enroll to continue receiving VA education benefits.

Flight training is available to eligible veterans and reservists under Chapters 30,32 and 33, Title 38 USC, Chapter 1606 and Title 10 USC. Only training at flight schools approved under Part 41 are eligible for benefits. Students must hold an unrestricted “Private Pilot Certificate” and at least Class II medical certificate privileges to be eligible for benefits. You must prove Class II privileges prior to the start of each course. Benefits are payable for dual flight, ground school training, and pre/post flight briefings. Benefits are paid monthly following submission by the school of a “monthly certification of training”.
