Open letter to SABA President Khurshid Khoja, Esquire

In Re: American School of Aviation

Dear Mr.Khoja

I applause and thank you for the SABA’s decision to come to aid for the American School of Aviation students stranded in Atwater. It’s a light at the end of the tunnel with a hope of getting out the quagmire at long last.

Early this year, Silver State Helicopters (SSH) school in Las Vegas closed by filing a Chapter 7. Over 2,500 students lost $70,000 each. They operated 250 helicopters at 40 school locations. If the past similar school closure cases are any indication, the prosecution of the ASA case seems less likely. Your writing to the county DA requesting criminal charges to be brought against the unscrupulous school owner(s) is a step in the right direction.

For the recovery of student fund in absence of any disposable assets likely to be left with ASA, I am of an opinion that only viable means is to name both the Kingfisher Airlines and the student loan lending institutions as co-defendants in the lawsuit. The desire to keep their public image from tarnished is likely to make them think twice to get entangled in a lawsuit and it would bring them swiftly to the settlement table.

While no lawyers are miracle workers, I trust that one of your able member lawyers with legal expertise in this venue and judicial connection in India could rise to an occasion to build a strong enough case to achieve success in recovering the lost student’s fund.

In July 2007, the Bureau for Private Post secondary and Vocational Education (BPPVE) was abolished much to the public dismay leaving the consumers statewide unprotected. While your organization’s bifurcated effort in civil and criminal front continues, it would serve a great public interest at this juncture if you could take one step further to push for a timely legislative enactment for the Student Tuition Recovery Fund (STRF) to safeguard student’s tuition from school failures and closures in the future. Real social justice then becomes apparent not as something that will be but something that is. I wish you success in this endeavor. Until such time, sir I am.

Respectfully submitted.

  1. -Correction-
    Upon rereading my previous post, I found a fundamental and fatal error in complying with English grammar that should not be left uncorrected in the excuse that English is my second language.

    In my “Open letter to SABA President”, the second word on the first line the word “applause” was inadvertently used. The intended and correct word is “applaud” and the sentence to be read “I applaud….”
    Although I know why a pencil comes with an eraser on one end, my profuse apology is in order.

  2. ASA Aircraft Movement Update:

    Does anyone recognize this airplane? Cessna 152/A N 757XY
    It is registered to American School of Aviation.

    Someone flew this plane from Modesto to Cloverdale yesterday, humm?
    It took off Modesto at 11:09 AM and landed at Cloverdale (North of Santa Rosa) at 12:36 PM

    For obvious reasons, Prince is not keeping his planes at Castle (KMER). Most of them are scattered around at different locations in and possibly out of California.

    Perhaps anyone who has any information about the ASA aircraft or sighting of the same may come forward to post it here so this site could be a one-stop clearing house for all the ASA airplane movement.

    For those students who have legal representation(lawyer), you might ask your lawyer to file a pre-judgement lien through the court on all ASA aircraft immediately with the FAA if not done so already while the case is pending, and impound the aircraft ASAP to prevent Prince from selling them off in pieces. (Avionics, engines, propeller, interiors, wings, fuselage, empennage, etc.)

    Echo Yankee, over & out!
