Repaying Flight School Loans

All types of pilot training loans need to be repaid, it is important to ensure that you have a plan in place and the means to repay your aviation loan within the repayment window. Each type of flight school loan will have a different repayment window, so be sure to look at this carefully, along with the interest rate.

Never borrow more than is necessary for the cost of your training program and always carefully read the paperwork and terms & conditions of your aviation loan. If you are unable to repay your flight school loans within the necessary repayment window, you may incur late payment fees, added interest and it could also impact your credit score.

If you have applied for multiple flight school loans to cover the cost of your tuition, you could consider private loan consolidation to help you keep on top of loan repayments.
