Burlington Aviation, a Cessna Pilot Center and FAA Part 141 flight school in Burlington, has been approved to receive both Veteran’s Administration Benefits from the GI Bill and funding from the N.C. National Guard Tuition Assistance Program.


Burlington Aviation will be the first flight school in the Triad to offer these programs to veterans, as well as people currently serving in the military and National Guard.


“We are honored to be able to offer education to current and former military personnel,” says Alan Ostroff, owner of Burlington Aviation. “Several of us here are ex-military, so we look forward to training anyone with a similar background.”


Approved training under the Post-9/11 GI Bill includes graduate and undergraduate degrees and vocational/technical training, as well as tutorial assistance and licensing and certification test reimbursement. The amount of support that an individual can qualify for depends upon city of residence and type of degree pursuing. At Burlington Aviation, Post-9/11 GI Bill benefits can be used toward instrument, commercial and multiengine training.
