Here's a question for anyone that has left PanAm. Has anyone been able to leave WITHOUT paying the penalty? I dont see how it costs more to disenroll someone who has 30k left on their account than someone who has 2k. I think the 10% is bull s**t, and is almost like profiteering. What would happen if someone said, "Hey, I'm not going to pay the penalty!" It would cost PanAm more to hire an attorney than to just let you keep your money. I guess if they decided to keep it, you could take them to small claims court. Anyone thought about these options? The only reason I have to stay is that there is practically a guaranteed instucting job when I finish, and they seem to have an inside scoop on who's hiring. I just hate feeling like a slave to a contract that I'm not sure would hold up in a court of law. Do any other flight schools do this to their students?
