Ravinder Ravi Virdi and Ritu Chaturvedi have been defrauding aviation students for a very long time.
They move around and are con artists.

Ravinder Virdi has been running a flight school fraude scheme since 2002 They have abused & beaten indian students and lawsuits are still ongoing for their time in Ontario.

Please do not use them for flight training, building flying time or aircraft rental.

very thing on the report in true

AUTHOR: anup - ()



I know ravi virdi and ritu from the aeroacademy school.I was one of the student in aero academy.

The school was a joke.More then flight training,both were troubling international students.They used to book flights with out the student being informed and charged no show, and since the students had large sum of tution fees deposited in there account there used to charge them.They were even told to fly on a bad weather days.Always book dual flights and build only dual hours.They even take away students passport, pilot log books.I know a girls from dubai her log book and Ptr book from the school where stolen.One of the student from southern india when his passport was stolen that guy tried to commit suicide.Another guy from seria even i tried to kill him self by jumping from the building.More students were charged more the actual tution fees it was not the way it said in aggrement.

 Please take action against Ravi virdi and Ritu chaturvedi.And one more request canadian government should not approve any more flight school and any kind of businees to this people.

Phoenix Aviation Academy - Alumni Comment

AUTHOR: P.Ganguly - ()

Wow! finally a flight school that understand's the need of the student and provides training in a way that is professional and catered to each student as per their individual ability and learning skill level. How do I know this - Well I joined Phoenix Aviation at Gatineau, Quebec just get my flight training completed for my PPL License, as my other school shut down where I was training for many months. I was sure I was trained very well at the other school .....!!! until Phoenix Aviation Flight Instructor started my Ground School and my Flight Training, well I had a lot to learn and lacked the art of becoming a good pilot, that was fulfilled by Phoenix Aviation and provided the best training in the most professional manner, filling in all gaps and getting me through my PPL license within a short time period.

The Ground School was taken by Ms. Ritu of Phoenix Aviation, and was most professional and the presentation and teaching method that was very interesting with various examples and hand outs. All the students in the CPL Ground School were very happy and glad to join the Phoenix Aviation classes. The level of professional training at Gatineau Airport is now fulfilled and complete with arrival of Phoenix Aviation. Thank you everyone at Phoenix Aviation, you guy's are the best, keep up the good work.

" publicize it....Rather than just Writing Fake statements "

Phoenix Aviation Academy - Fake Report

AUTHOR: P.G - ()

Hi once again Consumers,

I belong to the Consumer Class. I am very Happy about

But there is one problem. The commenters don't mention their names and Contact Details. So Anyone can write anything , whether fake or whatever.

If the commenter is TRUE, then I request him to come up with some FACTS...rather than Images, which can easily be MMMORPHED AND TAMPERED.

If you have any proofs, publicize it....Rather than just Writing Fake statements.....

I don't think you have any crude Proofs, otherwise you won't have hidden behind FAKE NAME. Am i Right???
