Flight costs for elective as tax-deductible

I traveled out of state from MD to Colorado for an elective at National Jewish in Denver which was directly related to my training as an ID Fellow and approved by my training program.

Can I deduct the flight costs to Denver as temporary job assignment expenditure under article 463 for my ID training?

Re: Flight costs for elective as tax-deductible

If you traveled to work in Colorado as part of a training program for less than a year with the intent to continue working in the city where you currently work and live, I would say you could definitely include the cost of those flights as an unreimbursed professional expense.
