We Florida Financial and Wayman Aviation Academy are proud to announce that the first round of privately funded students began their training this year. These students represent the first group of flight training loans that were approved and funded by We Florida Financial's new aviation lending program (also known as We fly). All of the students are currently using this resource to complete pilot licenses at Wayman's Pembroke Pines / Hollywood based training center.
Vice President of Wayman Aviation Academy, Wayman Eddy Luy says “We fly has stepped in to fill a void providing the fuel that students need to reach their flight training goals. They have the passion and now they have found the funding to learn to fly.”
We fly offers loans for all elements of aviation, including aircraft purchases, refinancing, aircraft maintenance, and flight training. The program makes financing simple - the entire loan process can be handled online or over the phone. Heading the program is Alex Martin, an aviation graduate of the Florida Institute of Technology, and a licensed private pilot.
Wayman Aviation Academy's mission is to change lives through aviation. With this partnership students can reach for careers in the booming aviation industry. Boeing and Airbus estimate a world-wide shortage of pilots that is raising demand and salaries in this lucrative field. Serving the South Florida community for six decades, We Florida Financial is committed to fostering financial education and promoting fiscal empowerment among its members. We Florida Financial holds a five-star designation by BauerFinancial, a national independent bank and credit union rating service.
As a credit line you can pay it down as you go and extend the $30,000 for the full course. Co-signors are reccomended for young aviators starting to build their credit. Currently the program is only available for US Citizens or Residents.
