Financial Assistance

The investment required to fund flight training costs can be a real challenge for most pilots.

Here we have listed a few different options which may be helpful for you.

Please contact us for more information on these options, or to discuss any other ways that we may be able to help you to achieve your career goals. 


Interest-free payment plans

If you are booking a flight training course such as our AirlineReady® APS MCC you will be offered the option to pay the course fee in several stages, at no extra cost. This could allow you to spread the course fee over several months.

We will always try to be as flexible as possible, so please get in touch with us to discuss your individual situation and requirements.

Through our partnership with Pegasus Finance, you may be eligible for an unsecured loan to fund your flight training. Pegasus promises competitive interest rates, as well as a fast and easy application process. 

Pegasus Finance is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority, and VA does not receive any commission.

Professional and Career Development Loans (PCDL) are bank loans to pay for courses and training that help with your career. Loans are usually offered at a reduced interest rate, and the government pays interest while you are studying.

British Citizens aged 18 or over may be eligible to borrow between £300 and £10,000. The PCDL scheme is closing, so you must apply by 25 January 2019.
