Finance your Flight Training
Although $50,000 to $95,000 is considered a huge amount of money, as an entry to one of the most lucrative and exciting careers out there (with salaries topping out above $400,000 per year), it is a small price to pay towards the investment to change your life. Compared to University Degrees costing hundreds of thousands of Dollars that will let you have far lower income caps, this truly is hard to beat.
Race City Flight Operations students will often pay out of savings, or have a parent/relative put up the money as a loan. Sometimes, a family may try to finance by getting a Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC).
We are excited to be able to offer a competitive option, by partnering with Stratus Finance. Of course, all loans come at a price, but when you consider the career income, it can be worth it. The Race City Flight Operations Course cost is STILL lower than many of our competitors, EVEN WITH loan expenses.
We have partnered with the Meritize Platform to provide our students with financing options to fund your education. With a Meritize Loan, you can get credit for your merit and potentially improve your loan options by sharing your academic history or military background, if approved, full deferment during school is available for certain products. Check your loan options in minutes without impacting your credit score at Meritize!
