Hello guys, this is my first post here on PPRuNe and I only registered today. I've been reading the threads in here for quite a while and with some advice for a friend of mine that passed by EFT last year to check facilities, accomodation, equipment, aircraft, etc.. I decided to register and being an APP Cadet on the program starting next january 2nd. Altough I'm not getting back at this point, I'd like to have a little more details on the exact actual situation of the academy. Heard nice and less nice thing about them, but the overall met my expectations (at least what its written!). I'll be leaving Portugal on December 30th on my way to EWR and then I'll pick up a connection flight to PBI where I'll have someone from the school picking me up.
So far, and for the ones that are thinking about joining the academy too, I can say that I got no big complaints to make otherwise I wouldn't be joining. Sometimes they took a little more than normal to answer my e-mails, sometimes you have to call and remember them of any pending answer you asked for a week before, but overall it seems pretty nice so far.
Basically I'd just like to find someone here that is currently studying at EFT, even better if it's an APP cadet like I'm gonna be, someone that can give my some advice with real knowledge of how things roll at EFT right now.
Also, I'll be happy to help you out with what I can at the moment or in further phases of my pilot course
