So, you misrepresented yourself to travel at their expense. And now you're mad because they want something back from their investment. Sounds like you deserve all the harassment they give you.

Ain't this a hoot....where are the morals in this kids these days?? Is this representitve of the future pilots in this country??

Now that he has provided some basic facts, if true, then the administrators at DCA and ATP should be able to figure out who this little punk is...someone should take him behind the shed and smack the crap out of him!...Now that feels better... :(

I got a letter from DCA the other day ... inside was a "preliminary airline application" which asked me which regional I'd rather fly for and a lot of other application style questions. As you can see by my flight time, perhaps a bit premature. Interesting marketing technique, though.

Man I go that letter to ,
the entire tour is a joke,,after they found out I had worked for CHQ,,,they pulled me out of the group and gave me an individual tour...I asked why and the guy said it was because he didnt want me to here how they were going to make my "dream of flying come true" when I already had time...basically they were terrified that I might "poison" the group if I called BS on something....They will lie to you up and down...they market towards somebody who knows nothing about the industry and make them feel like DCA is the ONLY way to get to the airlines...Also they tell you that spending $80,000 is "cheap" compared to what other schools make you pay....bottom line one of my friends from Trans States damn near started a class action law suit against those lying ba$tards.....Dont go there !!! is an SJS factory

MESA keeps calling me for the PACE program I talked with them about over a year ago. Poor parents keep getting the call at home.

Just hope they don't give your number to crew scheduling....

If you don't want them to call tell them you have no money and any cash you get goes straight to strippers and wiskey. Works with the telemarketers that call here.

Delta Connection Academy is a rip and right now I would not want to give any advance payment to any subsidiary of Delta. After all, your $80,000 might just buy you on to the list of unsecured creditors.

Flip - if you have a multi engine commercial and a pulse you can get hired at some of these outfits. The emphasis is on cheap these days....

Get over it.

I was going to say to let me know in advance when you will be flying so I can avoid that aircraft, that airspace and that entire area. Then I just stopped and realized you won't make it as a pilot anyway, so I have nothing to worry about.

Taters,

I am sorry but reading this thread is making me sick. Having attended the school and worked as an instructor for this school I can tell you alot about it. I saw first hand of some things they do that I did not agree with. Are they out to make money? They sure are. Every organization out thier has it problems. I do owe my employment at Comair to this school. It is not for everyone. Now if you are ticked off they are calling you nonstop I have five words for you.


Turn On CNN Right Now!!

Alot of peple in New Orleans and the Gulf Coast are having a bad day.

I'm done venting now.

You either have very low self esteem and no confidence, or have reached the conclusion that you can't fly an airplane.

I think if you cut the mustard at Comair, you could have made it at ATPS, or your local flight school. Hope you gain a little respect for yourself.

No one "owes their job" to Comair/Delta/Alter Ego Academy. You might owe a lot of money to them, but you your success was earned. Give yourself some credit.
