VET FEE-HELP Information

Investment in flight training can be substantial and VET FEE-HELP provides a practical and flexible solution. The Airline Academy is a VET FEE-HELP approved education provider. This means, if you can’t afford the expense of study right away, you may be eligible for VET FEE-HELP Assistance, a student loan program that enables you to defer payment of tuition fees until your income reaches a certain level.
