I own a flight school, so I applied for a Sallie Mae Flight Training Student Loan

Flex Air offers a number of Flight Training Financing options, but we are not part of the Sallie Mae program. We've applied to be included in the Sallie Mae network a few times, but never heard back. Looking at other schools in the Sallie Mae network, I notice that they're mainly big pilot mills who talk a lot about low loan rates, but have zero to say about their dropout rates, first-time checkride pass rates, career placement rates, or personal connections to veteran and minority communities... but I digress.

Sometimes our prospective students complain that the Sallie Mae rates are so much lower. If you're a prospective aviator who shops SOLELY based on interest rates, this blog post is a love letter to you.

SPOILER ALERT: Sallie Mae Flight School Loans are not quite what they seem.
