National Guard, Reserve, and Active Duty soldiers are eligible for funds to pay for flight training.

What is CAP?

The Army Credentialing Assistance Program allows eligible National Guard, Active Duty and Reserve soldiers to pursue voluntary credentials using Army CA funds. In an effort to contribute to its Soldiers’ professional development, the Army offers $4,000 for National Guard and Reserve and $1000 for Active Duty per year for off-duty, voluntary pursuit of credentials for Soldiers of all ranks (Enlisted, Non-Commissioned Officer, Officer, Warrant Officer).

To receive funds, Soldiers must pursue authorized credentials from an approved and vetted Vender. CRAFT (aka Chucktown Flight Training) has been vetted and approved to train Soldiers under this program.
