Coast Flight Training runs a new class every week. Classes will be assigned after you complete your interview with Envoy.
Program costs are unique to each individual and run from $3,000 to $49,000. Training costs vary based on experience coming into the program, FAA certificates obtained and fixed winged flight hours. Coast Flight will provide exact program costs once you have been given a start date. Envoy offers up to $23,000 on top of eligible GI Bill vocational benefits to help with the expenses of completing the FAA ratings and required flight time. (Additional financial assistance may be available through Coast Flight and AOPA.) An additional bonus will be given of either $17,100 or $22,100 (depending on the aircraft assigned) at the start of training with Envoy.
Coast Flight has arranged shared housing in San Marcos, Texas. A shared room will cost $400 a month, which includes all basic living supplies. BAH is not provided for vocational flight training.
Coast Flight uses the following equipment to train pilots:
GI Bill applicants must contact the VA, who will provide a Certificate of Eligibility (COE). This document explains in detail the benefits earned. A copy must be given to Coast Flight once a training class start date has been assigned. Plan ahead, as this document can take 4-6 weeks to receive. To obtain a COE, visit www.ebenefits.va.gov, select “Apply” and then select “Education Benefits.” Fill out the 22-1990 form for education benefits, or the 22-1995 form for a change of program if you have previously used your benefits or submitted for your COE on behalf of another school.
All benefits including travel will begin when you have entered ground school with Envoy in Dallas/Fort Worth (DFW). Envoy will provide an airline ticket to/from your interview and to/from your training program at Coast Flight.
