Default VA benefits at different programs

Has anyone ever gone to multiple places to train?

After some digging, and the helpful information provided by this forum I found a program that will get me what I need with the least amount of out of pocket expense. FFTC seems to be the way to go for me, but it culminates at MEI/Commercial.

In order pursue ATP I'd have to change training locations, unless I went part 61 with them. Is this feasible? Hell, is it even possible?

Got some solid feedback in my last post, hoping to strike gold again.

Most regionals will pay for the CTP course. You get your ATP at the end of your initial training at the airline. I'm currently attending the ACT program at Coast Flight Training in San Diego. Our school has you interview with at least one regional before you start training. You receive a conditional offer that is contingent upon completion of the course and successful completion of the technical portion of the airline's interview process. Essentially, they knock out the HR portion before you start training. Most VA students are covered 100% by the post-911 GI Bill, including their private. You graduate with an associates in aviation, PPL, instrument rating, CPL (single and multi), CFI, CFII and MEI.

Also, it's a 21 month program, so if you start with a full GI Bill, you will have time left over assuming you graduate on time.

I'm looking to use my G.I. Bill as well and only found TSTC in Waco tx. I'm really skeptical though because I've already been screwed over once on this.

I'm currently located in FL and trying to find programs closer to this side of the country for ease of relocation but I'd go out west for the right program. Housing is my main concern at the moment, even with the GI bill involved.

Yeah, it's pretty pricey out here. Any aviation program associated with a public college is eligible for 100% coverage under the GI bill (as long as it's part 141)... For now anyway. There is a bill in the house that would cap the GI Bill funding for flight training, but it has a grandfather clause, so get in while you can!!

Thanks for pointing that one out. My main focus has been the new program at AB Tech in Asheville NC. The guy running the FBO that has the agreement with the college is a retired vet and has essentially designed the program from the ground up to be GI bill friendly.

Which FBO is that, RH, and who's running the program?

That would be this program at AB-Tech with this FBO.

I've got family in Asheville, which would make the move a little easier but they live quite a distance from the college/airport so I'll eventually need to move closer.

I have to say, I'm about 90% sure that's where I'll be headed. I'm still calling a few places, they're just a bit far for me. It's the initial move that I'm most concerned about.
