Can ANYONE give me any opinions / info about Global Pilot Careers programme?. I mean the European Professional Programme. What do you think of this FTO? The whole programme is 67.000 Euros and includes FAA CPL, JAA fATPL and Boeing 737 300 TR and NG diffrences.
Can anyone give any kind of details about them?

I spoke for about 15mn with the head of training. My advice; stay away. Or if you've got that kind of money do a modular course here in europe for about 50000e and add your type rating. But then again a TR with no time on type...

Can anyone here tell me if they've had any experience with PAN AM? In terms of training are they a good school? I wanna do a FAA Pro Pilot at Pan Am ,then convert to a JAA at Pan Am Europe and then do a 737 Type Rating.
Also what about Orlando Flight Training , ATP Florida and Aerosim ? Out of theese three what would you recomand?

I done JAA MCC training down in PanAm a couple of months ago. I heard great reviews about it but when I went down there was serious miss communication. One of there staff had confirmed are start date but never told the office so we showed up and they didn't know we where coming :ugh:. They put a course together at the last minute and we got a teacher who was a nice guy but didn't know much about MCC so the ground school was very poor. I did get upgraded from the 737-300 to the 800ng that was fantastic. The sim was beautiful but again the instructors in the sim didn't know anything about the course or what was going on. Do it at your own risk but they seemed very unprofessional to me, serious lack of communication.
Hope this helps , good luck
Big names don't necessarily mean good training.
Contact them for pricing? No prices on their website?

I, too, had a very bad experience at PanAm. I arrived in MIA and PanAm acted as though they had never heard of me and said that they might have a training date for me in six weeks. This after PanAm had received a payment voucher for the entire amount of the 767 type rating program.
Additionally, at another point in my communications with them, I was sent (clearly by mistake) a full foreign student enrollment package. Full color copy of a passport, visa, bank draft and letter of credit, etc. for a student from abroad was forwarded to me by PanAm. I notified the potential student and destroyed the information, but when a company is that careless with critical personal information, I feel the rest of their program is pretty suspect at that point.
I did finally get my training completed through Flight Training International. They were much more professional and much less expensive than PanAm. I'm sure there are other reputable training companies out there, But I would avoid PanAm and I can personally recommend FTI.
