Students Caught In Funding Fight
A total of 80 foreign students from an Irish flight school are stranded in Florida after a financial dispute between the Irish school and its American contractor ended their training last week. The students, some of whom paid Pilot Training College more than $100,000 for courses that are conducted by the Florida Institute of Technology (FIT) at its flight training campus in Melbourne, had completed only a fraction of their course before FIT stopped their classes. According to the Irish Times, the Florida school claims the Irish school owes it money and the Irish school says it's suing the Florida school. "Everything I've been working for in the past 10 months has been ripped apart," student John Rawluk told the newspaper.
