Default Paying for school without a co signer

So I've decided I want to attend a full time pilots school to expedite the amount of time it will take to start applying for jobs as a pilot. My goal is to have my private pilots license by may and begin attending a flight program by June. I would really like to attend atp down in so cal. The problem is that I don't have the cash up front to pay for school and cost of living(about $80,000). Without a consigner I've found it difficult to get accepted for a student loan. And because of the type of school atp is I can't apply for a federal loan. I'm wondering has anyone else felt with this issue and found a way to make it happen? Any ideas to help solve this? Maybe another school that's similar but that I can get a federal student loan for?

You could always attend a university or technician college with a flight school. FIT, University or ND, Purdue, Embry Riddle, etc

Yah, there are a few community colleges in Florida that have flight programs that are a great option. I'm sure they're in your area as well.
