Can International Student apply for a loan?
No, International Student living outside of the USA do not qualify for these loan programs.
How much does the program Cost?
The price varies depending on the aircraft required and prior experience. Contact the admissions team and share what your goals are including aviation experience you already have. For example; are you interested in full professional pilot but already have a private pilot certificate?
What if I already have a Private Pilot Certificate?
Congratulations, that is an excellent accomplishment. We love students that already have their PPL. Wayman can give full credit up to 71 hours of PPL. This brings down the full cost of the program.
What's the difference between 152 and 172?
The Cessna 152 and 172 are the most popular aircraft ever built. However, the 152 is a smaller 2 seat model. There is a $5,000 difference over the length of the course.
- If you are over >6′ feet tall or more than >180lbs, choose the 172.
- If you are less than <6′ feet tall or Less than <180lbs choose the 152.
Is a co-signer recommended?
Though not required, student borrowers are encouraged to apply with a creditworthy cosigner, as it may increase the likelihood of the loan being approved. Co-signers must be US Citizens or Permanent Residents.

Full-time Cadets must be able to dedicate at least 4-5 days a week to flight training. In order to complete in the scheduled 18 months full dedication is required. Part-time jobs must not impact scheduling and have a maximum of 20 hours per week.
Is the Flight Instructor Job Guaranteed?
