US Flight School Announces New Financing Options

07th Apr 2022

Students enrolled in Leading Edge Flight Academy of Bend, Oregon who need financial assistance will now have access to a new financing option to pay for their courses, thanks to a new partnership with Sallie Mae.

The Smart Option Student Loan® will help students finance their careers in the professional pilot training programs. With the aviation industry in desperate need of pilots, this new lending option could not have come at a better time. The Bureau of Labor Statistics projects a 13% industry growth for the aviation industry by 2030.

“We are pleased to have the opportunity to provide our students with a responsible financing option to assist them in pursuing the flight training they need to work as a professional in the industry. Our program sets students up for success to achieve their professional pilot goals, and the option to have consistent funding will allow individuals to meet their goals in a timely manner.” -Courtney Massey, Director of Business Development, Leading Edge Flight Academy
