BREAKING NEWS:  QUANTUM APPROVED TO ENROLL VETERANS!!!!

(PLEASE SEE LETTER BELOW)

08/27/2015

 

Dear current and prospective CGCC helicopter students,

 

Great news! This morning, VA sent us the word that they have now lifted the suspension of enrollment for new veteran students in CGCC's helicopter track of our AAS Airway Science Technology (Flight) degree, effective the first day of classes.   We are now in complete compliance with the 85/15 rule. We also have a process for enrolling sufficient non-veteran students, so we know we will remain in compliance for future semesters as well.

 

What does this mean to you? If you are currently enrolled, it means that VA will now process and pay your GI Bill benefits. Although payment may be delayed somewhat by our having to wait for re-approval, VA will definitely back pay for all you have coming.

 

If you are not currently enrolled, it means that we won't have this uncertainty to deal with when we begin enrolling students for our next semester. The Spring 2016 semester begins Jan. 16, 2016, and registration will open up in early October 2015. If you intend to begin the program then, look for information sessions to open up around that time. Bear in mind that any paperwork you may already have turned in (both to the college and to Quantum) is specific to the semester, so you will need to do it again. You will particularly need to contact Quantum (once registration opens in October) to let them know your intention to attend in the spring semester.

 

I apologize to all of you for the incredible amount of uncertainty we have been dealing with, and I thank you for your patience. I anticipate that things will be much smoother in the future.

 

Please let me know if you have any questions.

############################################################################################################################################################################

Quantum Helicopters is proud to have offered government-funded flight training to veterans of the US Military since 1994. In coordination with the Veterans Administration, Quantum has helped many veterans achieve their goals of becoming helicopter pilots while using the benefits afforded to them due to their military service.

Offered in partnership with the Chandler Gilbert Community College, veterans will be employable in the helicopter industry upon successful completion of 5 semesters.  We are excited to offer a program which enables veterans to gain nearly 300 hours of flight time during the course of the program, significantly more than most other veteran-approved flight training programs.

Who is qualified? Veterans who have access to either the Post 9/11 GI (Chapter 33) or the Montgomery GI Bill (Chapter 30) may have benefits applied toward flight training.

Upcoming Class Start Dates:

  • May 2016
  • August 2016
  • January 2017

Students planning to enroll should attend one of the orientations that are offered in the weeks preceding the class start date.  Topics to be covered during orientations include, VA funding, class schedules, and enrollment requirements.  In the event that you are out-of-state and unable to attend one of the listed orientations, you may call Quantum Helicopters to initiate the registration process.
