VA Pilot Program

TransPac's VA flight training program prepares students to earn the same licenses and ratings as the Career Pilot Program. Minor changes have been incorporated to the curriculum to ensure that the program is eligible for Montgomery GI Bill benefits. Those benefits reimburse eligible US Military Veterans 60% of the cost of approved program hours. TransPac's Admissions Department assists you with the required VA paperwork and works to ensure that you receive the maximum allowable benefit.

Graduates of the Core Module will obtain all licenses and ratings required to become a fully qualified commercial pilot. The Instructor Module enables students to earn their flight instructor ratings, allowing them to increase their experience through flight instruction.

∗ Prices current as of May 1, 2014.


FAA designated examiners are not employees of TransPac. Students pay the examiner directly for the cost of each check ride, typically $500.

The Montgomery GI Bill does not cover the Private Pilot License Course, but may cover up to 60% of the approved costs of the other courses listed.

Books and Supplies are normally purchased as a package during enrollment. The particular supplies you require will vary depending on your curriculum. If you were to take the Core and Instructor Modules, you should plan to spend about $1,500 for books, supplies, uniforms and an aviation headset. You will not be required to purchase any books or supplies that you already own, as long as they are current.

∗ The courses outlined are based on typical student performance. Individual student progress can affect actual course hours and duration. Students requiring less training would receive a refund of all unused tuition. Students requiring additional training would be billed at the regular hourly rates for aircraft, instructors, etc.
