First, I would like to thank each of you for your valuable information that you have provided us in answering all of our questions. I am in the process of investigating the financial options to fund the schooling and targeting a date to enroll and get started!
My Fiancee is in financial aid and could probably answer these questions without batting an eye, but I’m trying to complete my research independently. My Fiancee has mentioned that in order to qualify for federal funding the institution would have to be an accredited school (honestly, my reaction to this was, “whatever that means?”). When it comes to the financing I have noticed that the 2 loan options located on the ATP website are both for privately funded loan. Are the federal funding options from the US Dept of Ed not available for ATP’s schooling? Mainly is the Pell Grant available for use on the flight training?
I have found grants for general and aviation education and I’m in the process of completing these packets, but I’m still interested in the federal funding options.
