They personally ripped me off. Besides getting screwed by them I have heard nothing but bad things about this place from other customers.

Not sure about your details, but it seems to me someone should put together an anti-scam seminar, sort of in the way all those scam get rich quick seminars are advertised late at night in hotel convention rooms. You could have a speaker cover everything from shady flight schools to Nigerian bank schemes. Then upsell some 12-cassette audio program on how to avoid scams for only $2,995!!! :D

I could tell people to stay away from red-heads, but without a specific reason why, people won't listen.

Did you hear these bad things before or after you got "screwed" by this company? If it was before, it's hard to have a lot of sympathy in situations like this!

I wouldn't listen, not even with a good reason!

Airludy is a flame baiter, read some of his previous posts.

If I had something to say about a flight school, I'd say all the reasons, because if they were that bad they would desrve it.

Why would I make this up??? Just do a little research and talk to other people that have worked or taken lessons there. Not a good place. Take you money elsewhere.

I believe you - but you're not helping your case

I don't think you're making this up, but without details on what exactly happened to you it kinda looks suspicious, as though you could easily just be holding a grudge against the owner or someone who works there and trying to bad-mouth them.

I can't think of one good reason why I wouldn't spill the full pot of beans on the Internet, down the the middle names of the people who ripped me off, if something like this happened to me (which, by the way, it did - see the Airman thread).
