Flight Training Financing with Skybound, a program provided by FMS Bank, an FDIC insured institution and serviced by ZuntaFi.

Cash Payment Plans

Students who enroll in the Pilot Pathway Program can also choose to follow a cash payment plan for training that offers an attractive path for those who can’t or don’t want to use our lending partners or have alternative sources of funding available to them.

Cash payment schedules, amount and timing of payments will depend on your program and can be designed with your Enrollment Advisor.

Grants & Federal Aid

At Faithful Guardian Aviation we understand having financing options, and keeping costs manageable, is important to students. FGA offers multiple payment options and financing partners to help students get the most out of their flight training. Students may opt to pay directly for their flight training or finance the cost of the Pilot Pathway Program with one of FGA’s lending partners.

In addition to our lending partners, students at Faithful Guardian Aviation can also elect to combine their flight training within a degree program enabling Federal Financial Aid (FAFSA), other grants and loans, as well as the V.A. and G.I Bill®. These programs are run with University Partners and students would organize their financial aid directly with them.
