Financing Options (may be available for those who qualify)
Today's civilian trained helicopter pilot generally has two loan options. The first is private unsecured loans from lenders such as Sallie Mae, Wells Fargo, or Chase. Repayment terms can be quite flexible but interest rates are often higher than secured loans.
The second option is to coordinate one's flight training with an associates or bachelors degree in Aviation Science or similar degree. This enables the student to procure federally subsidized loans often at a lower interest rate than private unsecured loans. This dramatically increases available lenders to the prospective student. These programs are sometimes offered through local community colleges but most popularly through online schools. The most popular school to offer this program nationwide is Utah Valley State College (UVSC).
Hi-Tech Helicopters coordinates with Sallie Mae Career Training Loans for unsecured lending. For more information on UVSC, click on the link below. Direct links to lenders that offer federally subsidized loans for UVSC are listed below as well.
