I just found out that I will be laid off in the beginning of September ( from the wonderful world of technology). I had planned to attend one of those academies but am now leaning toward a local FBO. My question is this: Can I collect unemployment while attending flight school? ... Is this ethical? ...Should I try to re-enter the workforce and pay my own ticket? My wife makes ok money, we would be able to live on but I would not be able to attend flight school with out some kind of income -- be it unemployment or flipping burgers.
