The authorities Of “ASA” closed the school from May 2008 (15th May ).
They admitted my son on 1st May & took from him $41000 / = & they told school would not be closed. Now they are not returning the money & saying closing the business is not difficult in America & leaving innocent students stranded & their parents in deep worries.
American Govt. immediately help giving some money to join other Flying school which will be returned to the Govt.after getting the money from “ASA” through court.
Indian Minister in charge of this affairs has said he would look after the case & we hope immediate action from him & hope to receive a reply.
It is the biggest aviation school scam in America.
My son Mikhail D’Mello joined ASA in Sep 2007. According to the contract they were to complete the course in 6-8 months. It is now over 10 months that the boy is there and they have not even completed the Private Pilot stage. They have USD 26,000 still lying with them from the 38,000 USD paid to them. Shifting the boy to another school is going to cost us another 30,000 USD, not including USD 600 per month as living expense. We have mortaged our homes to fulfill the boys dreams and career ambitions. How are we to organise such a huge sum again to complete the course? We plead that the government provide or organise some funds for these misfortunate aspiring young pilots of the age group 18-21. They are far too young to bear the trauma they have undergone, and some help from the government will be the only source to heal their wounds.
