Students May Be Eligible For Merit-Based Financing Coast Flight Training has announced a new program designed to help close the aviation skills gap by making flight training more affordable. Through a partnership with Meritize, pilots-in-training will now be eligible for merit-based financing, which can in many cases reward individual borrowers for their past educational and military experiences. “As air travel begins to accelerate and pilot demographics shift, our industry needs to use every tool in its arsenal to expand access to commercial aviation careers—and remove the financial barriers to flight education and training is a critical component of that mission,” said Bryan W. Simmons, President of Coast Flight and a former Navy Flight School instructor, retired United States Marine Corps Lieutenant Colonel.
