The Instrument, Commercial and CFI-I courses are accredited by the VA and eligible veterans may enroll in these courses under the GI Bill.

I have been flying through Shannon’s School of Aeronautics for 6 years. I started when I was 16 and earned my Private Licenses before enrolling in Liberty Online. This has been the best decision I have ever made.  Instructors are always there to help you in any way possible. The school operates with the highest amount of safety and ensures all aircraft are properly maintained. When an aircraft is down they work diligently to get the aircraft back up and running in the shortest amount of time possible. The school follows all guidelines set up by Liberty so there is never any doubt about whether a course was completed correctly. I would highly recommend Liberty Online and Shannon’s School of Aeronautics to anyone who is looking to become a professional pilot.
