flight training financing

Flight Training Financing

We recognize there are many potential students with a desire to get their pilots license but lack the necessary resources to accomplish this goal.  The traditional route for these students is “paying as you go”, which leads to unusually long training time frames resulting in extra costs and frustration.  Third Coast Aviation LLC (“TCA”) introduces its flight training financing solution – saving up via a “layaway program” instead of the costly and unfulfilling programs of the past.

How our Flight Training Financing works

Instruction for a Private Pilot’s License (“PPL”) has a national average cost of $10,500 in 2017.  Completing your training within six (6) months has many benefits, including limiting costs, keeping instruction “fresh”, and ensuring two (2) classes per week at least.

The TCA flight training financing program is simple – open a student account with TCA (fill out a student agreement, waiver, and receive a student handbook) starting with a our standard $1,000 refill amount, then continue to deposit $1,000 each month until you enter the sixth (6) month, when you start training at least twice weekly. This schedule ensures all the benefits and none of the frustration! Plus, you can start anytime you want if finances allow it.
