    Saw this on the news today:

    Irish trainee pilots stranded in Florida and facing loss of €80,000 as aviation school ends course

    Must be painful, no? Losing that much money is a lot :eek: over the average yearly wage for a hell of a lot of people.

    PS, it's not just Irish students, there's also some form the UK and the rest of Europe.

    FIT claimed they did not receive payments, so who dropped the ball here? That article didn't have much detail on the situation.

    It looks like the aviation school dropped the ball.
