Forces to Flyers
Forces to Flyers is a three-year research initiative led by the U.S. Department of Transportation (U.S. DOT) and its Volpe National Transportation Systems Center. The research initiative will study pathways for entering the pilot workforce, identify barriers to pilot training and employment, and implement and evaluate a demonstration initiative that will provide flight training to veterans interested in becoming airline pilots.

Free Flight Training for Vets!
If you are a veteran interested in getting a pilot certificate and working as a pilot, this may be the program for you! Unfortunately, if you already have a Private pilot certificate, you're ineligible for the program, which is described as a three-year research initiative to investigate the feasibility of training vets to become airline pilots. Space is limited, so if you or someone you know is interested, jump on this immediately!
