“What makes the Thrust Flight model unique is our accelerated approach to commercial pilot training, but access to financing has been a consistent hurdle for those wanting to start a career with the airlines. Thanks to Meritize’s platform and Zero Time to Airline, students now have a way to get all of the ratings required by the airlines in less than 2 years, and not have to pay for their training until they’re earning income as a pilot.”

Hunter, Thrust Flight

“The relationship that Advanced Welding School has with Meritize has been a major component of our growth in the past 1 and 1/2 years. We believe that what Meritize is doing is helping small companies like mine to help many students who would not be able to better their lives through education without you. The social impact of your company cannot be measured in dollars as you help others achieve lifelong dreams and income levels that they only have dreamed about. Please keep up this very needed work!”

Richard Hope, CEO, Advanced Welding School

“Offering Meritize as a finance option has been, in many cases, the difference between enrolling a new student and turning that potential student. Their loan programs are designed to be flexible and unique to meet the needs of our students. The application process is designed to be simple, and they have increased enrollment, retention, and profits.”

Danielle Chamberlin, Associate VP of Financial Services, International College of Health Sciences
