Upper Limit Aviation (ULA) in Salt Lake City is now offering up to 100% tuition coverage for eligible veteranss via the U.S. Veterans’ Benefits Office.
The special tuition program enables military veterans to receive helicopter flight training covered under the Post 9/11 G.I. Bill if they qualify for full benefits, according to officials with ULA, which is partnered with the second largest community college in the country, Salt Lake Community College (SLCC), to facilitate a program not only offering flight training but an Associate of Science degree or Commercial Certificate of Completion in the Professional Pilot program upon graduation. The program extends to those who might not be eligible for 100% coverage, or who may need additional assistance via the VA’s Yellow Ribbon Program.
“We’ve worked hard to bring this program to ULA,” said Lois Reid, school director. “We finally have the chance to offer America’s veterans the chance to train for a career in aviation at virtually no cost to them.”
A Part 141/Part 61 flight school, Upper Limit operates out of class B airspace, which affords students practical experience with air traffic control in busy, highly regulated airspace, officials said. ULA’s flight training program introduces students to flying at high-density altitudes (above 5,000 ft), mountainous terrain, and in associated wind and weather conditions. In addition to training for flight ratings from private to CFII, veterans are also able to use their benefits to train under Upper Limit Aviation’s special courses such as External Load, Mountain Flying, and Turbine Transition.
