Lake Superior Helicopters is approved by the US Department of Veterans Affairs Minnesota State Approving Agency under provisions of Title 38, US Code to provide training to veterans utilizing your GI Bill. Lake Superior Helicopters has a long-standing partnership with Lake Superior College (LSC) and the Center for Advanced Aviation (CAA) and we conduct all of the rotorcraft flight training for the two year Professional Pilot degree program.  By enrolling at Lake Superior College for their Professional Pilot Degree at the Center For Advanced Aviation, eligible veterans are able to use their Post 9/11 GI Bill® funding to cover up to 100% of their flight training and college education.

All of your VA and school enrollment will be done through LSC. Most classes and your flight instruction will be conducted at LSC’s Center for Advanced Aviation facility. Additional classes may be conducted at LSC’s main campus just ten minutes from the LSC/CAA facility. Every person flies the number of hours required to reach proficiency for the certificate or rating they’re working towards. If you require more flight time than allowed by the course, you may be responsible for those additional costs.  The Post 9/11 GI Bill® is for veterans who have served after 9/11. Depending on how much time you served/were active after 9/11, the VA will pay up to 100% of your tuition and fees at a degree-granting school. Click here to see an overview or register for Lake Superior Colleges Professional Pilot Degree Program.

The Post 9/11 GI Bill® also has a living stipend and annual allowance for books and supplies. The VA pays you directly for this.
