Our training is done through Part 61. All students, in both Part 141 and Part 61, must pass the same FAA Written, Oral and Practical exams in order to receive their rating.It is important to note that Part 61 training is not VA-approved, and as such, is not eligible for G.I. Bill reimbursements. For G.I. Bill benefits, students must complete 141 approved training. We are unable to offer 141 training at this time.
