Bill H.R. 476 discriminates against Veterans wishing to use their benefits to become professional pilots.
Don’t be fooled by its name, House Bill H.R. 476 titled: “GI Bill Education Quality Enhancement Act of 2015” will eliminate the opportunity for Veterans to become professional pilots after serving their Country and earning their Post 9/11 GI Bill Benefits.
If passed, H.R. 476 “Prohibits VA from including flight training fees in the in-state tuition and fees at public institutions of higher education (IHEs) that are covered by post-9/11 veterans’ educational assistance.”

This bill places an immediate CAP on the ANNUAL, TOTAL tuition & fees covered by the Post 9/11 GI Bill by including PUBLIC as well as private colleges in the annual CAP!
These effects are immediate and will apply to ALL current and FUTURE Veterans who wish to use their earned benefits to become professional pilots. Moreover, Veterans currently enrolled in Flight Training will lose their funding.
