And I know someone who graduated either beginning of last year or before from FTE and hasn't had any flying job whats so ever and he'd be 80-90k in debt/out of pocket, or his parents will I should say.

These large schools do have their airline contacts and can potentially help with getting that foot in the door, but they aren't much use right now, with airlines handing back pilots or going on flexi-contracts so they have the flexibility - but this is something one would expect whilst in a recession/difficult period, just like this Line Training payment issue.

Also a debt free pilot here with life experience, sure helps one sleep at night. but taken 10yrs so far.
