Finance Options

Learn To Fly offers flexible payment options for their CPL training program:

  • VET Student Loans:

VET Student Loans (VSL) is an Australian Commonwealth Government loan program that provides tuition fee loans to full fee-paying students who meet VSL eligibility requirements, allowing them to obtain qualifications and repay the loan once they earn an income.

This government-backed loan program provides a practical way to fund your training, allowing you to focus on your studies without financial stress.

  • Pay By Instalments: We break down the diploma courses into training modules. Instead of paying the entire course fee upfront, you have the convenience of paying for each training module as it approaches. This approach ensures that your investment aligns with your progress, offering financial flexibility without compromise. It’s one more way we’re dedicated to making aviation education accessible to everyone.
