For those not in the know...MFE = McAllen = WAAAAAAAAY south Texas.
Do you know Charlie McDougal? He's a DE out there that I occasionally used in Austin. Super friendly guy that might have some connection. Flighttrainingcoalition.com.
If you can move to Houston, I believe Dutch Wings is also hiring...or so the rumor mill states. They might have student housing. Harvey Rhin might as well...I imagine they get a ton of out of towners for the aerobatic programs.
