  1.  

    The company is run by "old-school" (70+ year-olds) with an old fleet and old methods.

    I have been working at American Flyers full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    If you are in TX, CA, or FL you will fly a lot. Those schools have lots of career students and good year-round weather.

    Cons

    You will be micro-managed. No opportunity for advancement. Lots of family members in management positions. Morale is low. Old equipment. Senior managers brag about 40+ years with the company (mid-managers 20+ years) preventing innovation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Update website, teaching aids, sims, and aircraft.

    Pros

    Good flight instruction, good instructors

    Cons

    Micromanagement from the top, poor management of opportunities to expand the company and poor management of employees

    A company that could improve their market share through new aircraft, multiengine trianing
