Default Aero Services for Southen Air Training and Interview

Yes, you're 100% right on the mark about Aero Services. I was trying to be somewhat reserved about them. I had mulitple friends get totally "screwed" and their (with the WIA) money stolen by Aero Services while getting their Type Ratings. Lot's of hidden costs and fine print like buying a used Yugo. The owner LaForgia is nothing but a jerk and mafia want-a-be. Good thing I got my Type Rating elsewhere when I found out what a pond-scum outfit Aero Services was.

I hope that Southen Air uses their own instructors and just rents out the facility. That's one of my concerns about hiring on with Southern Air and their utilization or collaboration with Aero Services.

Default Mr. Vito Laforgia at Aeroservice- Miami


This Mafia SOB is a real scumbag who will stab you in the back every time he gets a chance! Flew with him many times as he likes to overrule you, but when you stand your ground he backs off! (PFE) (DC-8 -DC-10)

Default Aero---"rip-off"---Service

I just thought I would join the Aeroservice bashing and re-post my previous comments about these scum bags:

I have to agree with the previous comments about Aeroservice. That place is an absolute sham. I have been told by a FAA inspectors that "Laforgia, the sims, and the training are the absolute bottom rung of the professional training ladder". I went there for my F/E training, they advertised that it would take me 6 weeks to complete---BULL S*#T!!!! It too me 11 weeks. They were having some issues with the FAA and the Sim was constantly broken. I had my check-ride 4 weeks after my training was complete. Then, that walking vile of pig vomit, Steven D.- had the balls to try and get more money out of me by offering me F/O training. When I tried to speak to Stephen D. and Laforgia about my delay in training, they gave me the run around, never returned any of my phone calls, I actually waited in the parking lot to speak to Steven D-when he saw me, the *** ran to his car and speed off. I am not the only person this has happened to.
There competitor is Pan AM and Alteon, they are all within 1 mile of each other. They offer the same training and last I checked Pan Am is the same price. I have been to Pan Am since my Aeroservice experience, the difference is day and night. The Pan Am .training and the equipment are much better.
