Use your GI Bill for a college degree, use the better job from said degree to pay for your licenses and certs.

What he said. Use taxpayer money for what it is intended for. Use money you earn for play.

No, pretty sure it doesn't pay for them.

Not that I checked.

This has been covered before and the short answer is that the G.I. Bill doesn't cover such expenses, as it is not an approved education program.

They did open the Post-9/11 up to cover professional certifications, but I still don't believe any of the skydiving ones were allowed.

Pretty sure you can get the tests paid for, but I don't know how to get that.

I pays for none of the Skydiving Related Certs right now.

Piloting needs to be a Commercial Rating and Accredited School.

There is two Riggers School working on getting recognized, but that has been getting "worked on" as long as I have been in the sport.

The GI Bill and its related funds are intended for accredited Colleges, Universities and Vocational Schools. Using it for any thing else opens you up to legal issues no former SM can afford.
