Flight Training Affiliate Program

Learn More - Video

In addition to our Lynchburg-based residential program we are expanding our school through a Flight Training Affiliate (FTA) program. Our partnership with the Cessna Aircraft Company will allow students to receive flight training at qualified Cessna Pilot Centers across the nation while working on their Bachelor of Science Degree through Liberty University Online. 

Why choose a Flight Training Affiliate?

Veteran Benefits

  • Benefits at other Flight Schools are capped at $10,000 per semester. Liberty University is a partner in the Yellow Ribbon program which allows eligible students to continue their training once annual GI Bill funding has been exceeded. Liberty does not have an annual cap on Yellow Ribbon programs.
  • Post-9/11 GI Bill recipients may have their books, written exams, headsets, charts and checkride costs covered.
  • The Veterans Administration Post-9/11 GI Bill program entitles veterans, their spouses, or their dependent children the opportunity to be awarded 100 percent of their educational expenses, including a housing stipend.

Federal Financial Aid

  • Enrolling with Liberty University at a Flight Training Affiliate allows students to use Federal Financial Aid including scholarships, grants and loans.

Reduced ATP Minimums & Hiring Agreements

  • Liberty has been approved to offer the Restricted ATP program, commonly referred to as the reduced-hour ATP. This means our FTA students will require 1250 hours of flight time instead of 1500 hours to get hired as a First Officer at an Airline.
  • Liberty has several hiring agreements with SkyWest, ExpressJet, American Eagle and Piedmont Airlines.
