New Options Available For Helicopter Student Funding

Meritize And HAA Partner To Offer Innovative Scholarship

Helicopter and airplane flight training school Hillsboro Aero Academy reveals its expanded partnership with Meritize, a developer of funding solutions for skills-based education and workforce development.

The program is now set to include a loan program for helicopter students. Previously, Meritize’s program had only been available to HAA’s airplane students.

Under the Meritize Loan, credit can be given for merit and has the potential to improve their loan options if they share their military experience and academic history. Approved candidates can have access to a potential full deferment option during school in addition to being approved for certain additional products.

This option is coming at a time where helicopter pilots are in high demand after the helicopter industry seeks to recover from COVID-19 and grow.

There is a pressing need for new helicopter training program graduates and this partnership seeks to help solve the current crisis. Helicopter students have historically been bypassed when looking at overall availability for financing options and the Meritize-HAA partnership offers a new opportunity for these students to fill their career goals of flying.

"The Meritize program has been extremely valuable to us in our mission to provide aspiring pilots with financially accessible training," said Natalia Cimpean, CEO of Hillsboro Aero Academy. "We are delighted to expand this option to our helicopter school so that more students have the potential to achieve their dream of flight."
