I'm brand new to all this, but have read through a vast majority of these forums. I am a veteran, with access to 100% of my Post 9/11 GI Bill. Ive been looking through helicopter flight schools for the better part of a year now and have not found one that doesn't baulk one way or the other. 


Im looking for a flight school that accepts the GI Bill, with or without a degree program. I would be a full time student, as so to hammer out the training as soon as possible. I am able to attend school anywhere in the country so location is not a problem. I would like to obtain all of my certifications up to CF I-I. 


Any information would help and be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

You're not likely to be able to get your CFI-I done in a reasonable amount of time unless you're in a degree program. The post 9/11 GI bill will only pay a max of $13,061.61 per year for vocational flight training. My tuition for my PPL semester was $46,000+. 


As it is, on the semester schedule, you're going to be putting in at least 40 hour weeks to get the work done. It's way more demanding of your time than I expected.


If you have any questions let me know, I'm going through the program right now.

Hi all. Newb here. I too am looking into utilizing my Post 9/11 benefits. What school(s) you recommend? What do you wish you would have known before starting a program? TIA
