Fox Valley Technical College Took my money, VA educational benefits and kicked my a** out the door Oshkosh, Wisconsin
*Consumer Comment: Wow..
Accused me of not reading the material when i was having difficulty in the beginning.
Stalled my practical training in the air midway through the program. The instructor had me doing the same 3-4 maneuvers for the last month of the school no matter how good i was at them. The last week i had to use up my flight time my instructor was too busy so he passed me off on all the other instructors who did progress me through to skills i should have been working on earlier in the program.
FAA regulations say that students need to pass with 70%, the class had a published standard of gaining 80% on pretests. One hour before my FAA exam my flight instructor told me he wasn't endorsing me for the FAA exam, felt it was too hard for me because i only scored in the high 80's.
I had purchased 50 hours of flight time, the weather was crap during the summer and i had 26 hours left, they just absorbed my money and said thats the way it was, too bad. Used 2 months of my VA benefits and lost a unique window of time i had to begin this new career.
I was the oldest student in the class, even older than the instructors. I feel there was an element of discrimination there, because they worked hard with the other students but worked harder to not help me.
