The MOD’s Enhanced Learning Credits Scheme (ELC) promotes lifelong learning amongst members of the Armed Forces. The scheme provides financial support in the form of a single up-front payment in each of a maximum of three separate financial years.
You are reminded that ELC funding is only available for the pursuit of higher-level learning, i.e. for courses that result in a nationally recognised qualification at Level three or above on the National Qualifications Framework (NQF) (England, Northern Ireland and Wales), a Level six or above on the Scottish Credit and Qualifications Framework (SCQF) or, if pursued overseas, an approved international equivalent qualification with an approved learning provider.
For Aeros, this means that military personnel will be able to claim ELCAS credits to redeem against the cost of flight training with us.
Are You Eligible?
Before being eligible to make an ELC claim, individual scheme members must have completed no less than four years of eligible service to claim at the lower tier of funding (up to £1,000 per claim installment) and eight years’ service for the higher tier (up to £2,000 per claim installment). Only service accumulated since 1st April 2000, may be counted as eligible service for the purpose of the ELC Scheme.
You are entitled to make three ELC claims in total. You can only make one claim per financial year (1 April - 31 March). You can claim up to ten years after leaving the services. If you are claiming in the last year of the scheme eligibility, study must commence before the scheme expiry date.

Aeros and RAFSAA have in place an agreement covering a range of partnership activities. This includes bespoke training advice on military to commercial credits and training pathways, support to RAFFCA members progressing to CPL and higher training and access to some of Aeros' specialised training assessment capabilities.
We provide support and advice to RAFSAA’s members as they progress through their commercial training.
Aeros is the UK’s leading supplier of modular flight training courses. This allows students the flexibility to train at times they choose (seven days a week) and, with five EASA (European Aviation Safety Agency) approved locations, in many cases near to their homes.
We are delighted to be part of this arrangement and pleased that the RAFSAA have shown confidence in our courses and our reputation.
From military to commercial
Aeros have successfully trained a number of military pilots converting their Military Pilot Licences into EASA Licences and Ratings. Due to the bespoke nature of each conversion, please contact us to find out how we can help you. In order to qualify for conversion, you must have completed the EASA ATPL(A) theoretical knowledge examinations before starting a conversion.
