Veterans Administration / GI Bill
K&S Aviation Services is approved by the VA for initial type ratings on Boeing B-737.
VA Code for training in Seattle, WA
(Boeing B-737): 2-5-4783-47
Important: As the VA considers it a student’s responsibility (as well as a school's responsibility) to make sure that the training center the student chooses to do his/her training at is VA approved in the state where the training takes place, we recommend to always check the VA WEAMS website for this:
In the link, select “flight” under Program type and then click on the state in the map where you know the simulators are located for your specific training.
For our VA students wanting to use their Veterans Benefits, a valid FAA FIRST class medical will be required by the first day of class. For all other students, NO FAA medical is required if you do not have one.

VA Requirements for Medical Certificate: A student pursuing an Airline Transport Pilot certificate must have and maintain a current Class I medical certificate (Class II for Commercial Pilot certificate). The same is true when adding a type rating to the aforementioned certificates. VA regulations further state that payment may not be made for training pursued after a medical certificate expires and will consider any benefits paid in which the appropriate medical certificate is not in effect to be an overpayment subject to recovery.
