Finance your Flight Training

Although $48,595 – $65,595 could be considered a large sum of money, as an entry to one of the most lucrative and exciting careers out there (with salaries topping out above $400,000 per year), it is a small price to pay. Compared to University Degrees costing hundreds of thousands of Dollars that will tee you up for far lower income ceilings, this is hard to beat.

Sling Pilot Academy Students will often pay out of savings, or have a parent/relative put up the money as a loan or other. If financing, you can get the best rates if you or a parent/relative has home equity and takes out a Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC).

We have partnered with Stratus Finance to offer a competitive option. Obviously, all loans come at a price, but when you consider the career income, it can be worth it. The Sling Pilot Academy Course cost is STILL lower than many of our competitors, EVEN WITH loan expenses.
