I did the A320 type with the GI Bill bennies. They pay 60% of your type costs. I think it's great. I got an A320 type for literally $5K. Try FTI, HPA, Simcenter...all these accept GI Bill.

GI Bill

My 737 type cost 7500. The GI bill sent me a check for 4300. I wrote the whole 7500. off taxes because I figured the GI Bill money was part of my initial investment which grew with interest over the years.

Ditto. The VA requires you to have an FAA Class I prior to starting class, though.

I also got the 737 type (CPT in Houston) and the GI Bill will pay 60%. Make sure that the place you go is accredited or they will NOT pay you. You can write the entire amount off (I did) as long as you report the income from the Government ($4300).

enough
I'm not smart enough to know the diference between 1606 and 1607 but I do know--I went to HPA for my 737 type and they took care of all the paperwork. All I had to do was sign it. 6 weeks later I got a check for $4300...easy as that.
