Possible Good News

I just heard from my instructor, and although this won't be confirmed until Wednesday, it appears as if things are looking good for Sierra. It is true that we have been sold and that it is a Korean company. They wish to keep the Sierra name and have a lot of money to invest. They will be replacing all of our aircraft as they want nothing older than 10 years. All of the instructors and flight operations staff will remain, but our management will be changing. The Port is giving us until July 31, to rennovate the building, so it is speculated that we may move to another location, because any smart business owner will opt not to spend the 1.5 million that it will cost to make those changes, just to keep the same building. Also, this company owns a Jet center which may mean flow through.

Like I said though, this is all unconfirmed and I have a plan in mind to complete my training if this all turns out to be lies and am speaking to a lawyer about my options should they shut down and run off with the cash. I encourage all Sierra students to do the same.
Too bad I haven't a clue what the website says about us. For all we know they are saying "Don't go to this place. They are in the process of stealing all of their student's money" LOL
Anybody here know Korean, who could translate?
I used a web translator and it doesnt really say much that would interest any of the students currently attending Sierra Academy. There is a message forum on the website, but the translator didnt do to well on that so it was hard to make sense of what they were talking about half the time.

Doh! It just occured to me my brother in law is fluent in Korean. Maybe I'll have him check it out. Still probably nothing all that exciting though, just as SierraPilot said. I was half-way joking, but I may may have him look at it just for the heck of it.
I just got back from the palace and it is alive. The ks people have based on my understanding are going full forward. I agree with what they are doing. I corned one of them to get info, he seemned scared. I said they were getting planes in to get the school running in the shortest time possiable, no plane older then 5 years. And then they will slowley do what they need to do to get the school running correctly. I am so happy skip is gone and we are actually have people that have a clue and money to deal with the problems. As for flight training, everything will go as it was before. Meaning I am not going to get screwed. As for me I only need sierra open for another 2 years so I can get my CFI and my hours. I think that this company will keep it open at least that long.
No plane older than 5 years. I'll be flying planes newer than my car!

I hope this dosn't mean a heafty price increase.
