I'm curious for an update on the big career academies. Whats the student enrollment looking like both domestic and foreign students?

I used to work at L3Harris, but got furloughed by them over the summer, along with 30 other instructors. The international students stopped coming in back in January. So hours just started to slowly drop until there was no work available. Rumor is there will be a second round of furloughs coming soon. I know Epic Flight Academy and Phoenix East were hurting bad too

I work at a 141 school and it's bad, next to no new signups. It's real unfortunate for everyone.

Left Auburn after I got my IR over the summer and last I heard they doubled their instructors (30ish to 65ish) and flight students increased about 1.5x (was expected to double so not too bad). That being said the freshman I know over there are having the same issues I did and aren't super happy....

I'm currently at ATP in Denver, CO and it's booming. From what I hear their KCOS location is growing super super quickly as well...
