PRLog - Jun. 30, 2014 - PHOENIX -- The Veterans Administration recently approved and agreed to cover education costs for degrees and pilot certification for veterans attending Unmanned Vehicle University, a Phoenix, AZ-based civilian UAV flight school. The VA’s marquee decision means veterans can now use their GI Bill benefits to pay tuition fees for advanced education including Master’s and Doctorate degrees and also includes UAV Pilot Training Certification.

Dr. Jerry LeMieux, Col., USAF (Ret) said, “This is the perfect education to transition from the military to an exploding civilian job market. There are hundreds of commercial applications that will need new training to lead the next generation of unmanned systems.”

Unmanned Vehicle University offers a state-of-the-art UAV pilot training program consisting of three phases. Phase one and two are conducted at home. Phase one and Phase two can be completed in two weeks at home. Phase three is conducted at one of the university flight schools and completed over a two day period.

This training is only available to U.S. citizens or foreigners living in the U.S.
