Flight Training Affiliate Program

In addition to our Lynchburg-based residential program, we now offer the B.S. Aeronautics degree through the Flight Training Affiliate (FTA) program. Our FTA network of qualified flight schools will allow students to receive flight training at qualified FTA locations across the nation, while working on their Bachelor of Science degree through Liberty University Online.

  • All students must have a valid FAA Medical Certificate (1st or 2nd class) prior to registering for any flight courses. 

Veteran Benefits

  • Liberty University is a proud participant in the Department of Veterans Affairs Yellow Ribbon Scholarship program. Through this partnership with the Department of Veterans Affairs, students with 100% eligibility under the Post-9/11 GI Bill® can receive additional funding from Liberty University and the Department of Veterans Affairs to cover any tuition and fees exceeding the Post-9/11 annual limit. For many students, this scholarship allows 100% of all tuition and fees to be covered with no out-of-pocket expense.
  • In the upcoming 2016-2017 academic year, the Yellow Ribbon Scholarship has been changed for students within the School of Aeronautics (SOA). Liberty University will contribute up to $7,500 in Yellow Ribbon per year for online SOA students. The Department of Veterans Affairs will match the amount awarded by Liberty University, for a combined scholarship that covers up to 100% of the student’s remaining tuition and fees. When combined with the VA’s portion, the total Yellow Ribbon amount available is $15,000 for online SOA students, over and above the $21,970.46 Post-9/11 GI Bill® annual cap. 
  • The Veterans Administration Post-9/11 GI Bill® program entitles veterans, their spouses, or their dependent children the opportunity to be awarded up to 100 percent of their educational expenses, including a housing stipend.
