Tuition - AeroGuard

Transparent, Fixed-Price Tuition

Transparent, All-Inclusive Tuition

Here at AeroGuard, we know it’s important to keep flight school costs manageable for our students. Two of the ways we accomplish that are through our tuition reimbursement packages with SkyWest Airlines, and our financing options which require absolutely no loan repayments during the training portion of the program.*

The most important way that we keep flight school costs manageable is through our transparent, all-inclusive tuition model. Other flight schools can sometimes offer deceptively low tuition numbers that do not include the substantial supplemental costs of testing, extra flight time you may need, and checkride fees necessary to complete your training and become a paid airline pilot.

At AeroGuard, your tuition includes everything you need to complete your training, work as a Certified Flight Instructor, and begin your career as a paid pilot at SkyWest, our airline partner. When researching flight schools, it’s important that you know exactly what is covered by your tuition.

*Tuition Reimbursement and Loan Financing options are only available to U.S. Citizens and permanent residents
