How do you want to pay for your training above the CA money you receive? *
Training in a Cessna 150 costs around $7500, in a Cessna 172 costs around $8,500. The difference in the planes depends on your size. For Reserve/Guard service members, you can use your $4000 Phase 1 money and then use $4000 Phase 2 money to cover all the costs, if you train over two fiscal years. For Active Duty service members, you can use the $1000 and then you will need to pay out of pocket for the remaining costs, unless you happen to train over two fiscal years (then you'll be able to use Phase 1 and Phase 2 money for a total of $2000).
