Career Transition Funding

December 27, 2018 (Ellington Field, Houston, Texas) — Third Coast Aviation (‘TCA‘) is proud to announces career transition funding for individuals transitioning to a career in aviation, funding that includes a smooth entry into our partner programs with regional airlines and a way to build hours bridging the gap between the commercial pilot license and the 1,500 flight hours required for an Airline Transport Pilot (‘ATP‘) license. Through a recently signed agreement, TCA offers funding through its programs with Meritize.

Get Credit for Your Merit

Funding your education on your own merit is within your reach. With a Meritize loan, you can improve your loan terms by sharing your academic profile. Providing your transcript – whether high school, partial or full college or previous skills-based school experience – let Meritize use your learning history to enhance your credit evaluation and improve your loan options.

You don’t have to have great credit. You don’t have to have a co-borrower (but if you do, even better). And you don’t have to be an “A” student to get financial credit for your academic merit. With a Meritize loan you can …

  • Use your transcript to enhance your credit and improve your loan options,
  • Get pre-approved in minutes,
  • Fund the full cost of tuition on your own merit, and
