    Default Post 9-11 GI BIll 2.0

    So... anyone have the scoop? All I have seen so far is that the bill has been signed and will allot up to $10K/year for flight school but that the funding has not gone through appropriation.

    It is supposed to take effect Oct 1, 2011. It will cover flight training after a Private license. I'm assuming that it will only be at Part 141 schools, but I haven't seen that in writing anywhere yet.

    You can use 2.0 for your instrument rating. They will pay up to 10K/year. This is new for this year (as of Feb)

    What LuJon said... the new Post-911 GI Bill approved this year is designed to include vocational training and WILL NOT require an accredited institution of higher learning. It specifies that this will include flight training but cannot be used towards a private license.

    This thread exists to spread the good news. Flight schools should see a bit of business as a result.

    Where are you guys finding Post 9-11 GI Bill 2.0?

    http://www.gibill.va.gov/documents/B...son_Charts.pdf shows Flight Training (Under Post 9-11)as a NO with a Number 3 Note, which says it may be approved if at a IHL.

    Please point me to something in writing?!

    Thank You.
