    I worked at TransPac Aviation Academy full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Company offers work, but at a cost. The pay is poor, the benefits non-existent, and the pressure to fly excessive. Students are kept on a very tight leash as far as flight time goes, and the corporate model for student training is a certificate mill. Feed students through the pipeline at any cost, don't give any flight training or instruction beyond the bare bones syllabus. Student cheating is standard, with students maintaining their own websites full of test images and profiles on every instructor. This is not a good thing. Students learn only what's necessary to pass tests, and even then often fail the tests.

    Cons

    Advertises insurance for employees, but internal memo from CEO advised employees to seek Obamacare because "ours isn't very good." A flight training facility for foreign airline students, but students are so badly trained that many aren't able to adequately land an airplane. Most students end up failing multiple checkrides. If most pilots fail a checkride, it's a once-in-a-career event. The students from Transpac routinely fail every checkride multiple times. For an instructor who is writing the recommendations, it puts the instructor in a very bad light. This is harmful to the career.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your instructors. This is a flight school; it needs to be run with the interest of the students in mind.
