Republic Training Contract Being Enforced!
 
Just got a call from a friend of mine who left Shuttle America last year after working for them for 10 months. He received a letter requesting repayment of the training contract within the month for $11,453.00. His letter says if the training contract is not repaid by March 21st Chautauqua will be moving forward with enforcement action.

I also left Shuttle last year, but I have yet to receive anything yet.

Does anyone have any info on people who may have fought the company on this? There was all sorts of talk in the past about these contracts not being worth the paper they are written on, so I guess we are about to find out.

Please PM me if anyone has any insight.

If you signed a bank note with it then it is enforceable. If not, I think I heard that they are not enforceable. Look for a Great Lakes thread recently - someone posted a link about a lawsuit Lakes filed against a guy that left. He had signed a note with it - and he owed them their $7500.

I call BS...did your buddy pull the I don't have to give 2 weeks line? If so I think he may have ****ed someone off. Im S5 and I have had almost half my initial class from last April bail already and no one has been pimped on the contract yet...my guess is your friend may have ****ed someone off. :mad:

...and to think everyone was bashing those who went to Silver for their training contract.

Those in glass houses ought not throw stones little one. Silver is still not a great place to be at regardless of the training contract.

People sign a training contract and then bash Republic for enforcing it when they bail 6 months later? What do you expect? If I was BB I'd sell it to a collection agency and let them deal with it.

My point was simply that everyone treats Silver as if they are/were the only airline with a training contract, thats all. As far as enforcement, depends on the situation. If you left to become a millionaire, courts probably wouldn't show any sympathy. Hope it works out for you guys.
