Complaint Review: Tradewinds Flight School
Tradewinds Flight School Ernie Carnahan, CFI, CFII, Owner, Shawn Sullivan, CFI, CFII, MEI, ATP False advertising, Failed to complete rotorcraft training after being paid in full, Substandard aircraft, Malfunctioning equipment on aircraft, Failed to properly train under FAR part 61 and 141. Fort Pierce, Florida
During this time I continued to complain about the training, radios not working, no VOR, Transponder not working, we even flew for several hours without anti collision lights and nav lights not operational because of the eletronics failed. After approximately 10 hours of flight time I was advised they were to sell the rotorcraft. I requested a refund but the refused, stating they would train me to a check ride then sell the ship. Two weeks later and after several attempts to be put on the flight schedule, they sold the rotorcraft and never told me. They just avoided my calls for three weeks, until they finally told me the rotorcraft was gone. I want a full refund.
