US Flight School CEO Says Industry is Working to get Accreditation from the U.S. Department of Education

17th Oct 2022

AeroGuard Flight Training Center CEO Joel Davidson told the US News Channel KXAN that the Flight School Association of North America (FSANA) is working to get accreditation for the flight school industry from the U.S. Department of Education, and he hopes that effort will lead to funding. Davidson is on the Flight School Association of North America’s (FSANA) board of directors, serving as the organization’s treasurer.

“The federal government does not consider independent flight training schools to be accredited educational institutions. So therefore, students who attend our flight school and other flight schools are not eligible for the financial aid programs or loan programs that you would get in normal university,” said Davidson.
