Irish trainee pilots in Florida fear fee loss of €80,000 each - RT News

The Irish Aviation Authority has begun an investigation into the reports following what is understood to be the termination of a training contract involving a Florida-based college and the Waterford-based Pilot Training Centre of Ireland.
It is believed that the trainee pilots are stranded in Florida after being told that their course will not be continuing.
It is thought the trainees had paid fees in the region of 83,000 each to the Pilot Training Centre of Ireland, but that the Florida Institute of Technology Aviation told students that they would not be allowed into the air again.
It is also thought that FIT's contract with the training centre has been terminated.
The IAA has said in a statement it is aware of certain difficulties with the Florida Pilot Training College.
An officer of the IAA is in Florida to brief the students and to explore the possibility of allowing the students to continue their training in Florida or back in Ireland.
"The IAA will endeavour to facilitate the crediting of all flight and ground training carried out so far in Florida towards qualifications," the statement added.
