Learning to fly: College's pilot school faces declining enrollment
“We have trouble retaining our instructors because the airlines hire them with less experience.”
The actual start of spring or not, the signs of the season abound in Farmington: longer days, chirping birds, reminders of daylight-saving time. via Farmington Daily Times

Rae Lynn c'mon!
"Students shy away from the program now for financial reasons related to the tightening economy and the credit crunch, Shropshire said."
Don't play the blame shift game like the little Caesar down in Phoenix! You could get a better job elsewhere too. Tell the truth! You are above this!
The reason enrollment is down is simple. Jonathan Ornstein is only good at one thing. Creating and infuriating his many increasing numbers of enemies.
Do we really need a history lesson here? ACA? Freedom Airlines? go! Airlines? frivolous lawsuits?
Mesa Pilot Development will continue to suffer until Mesa actually becomes a good place to work. Jonathan Ornstein must be removed. There is no other way to restore Mesa Pilot Development failing enrollment.
Meanwhile the valuable Mesa codeshares will aggressively seek alternatives to Mesa's erratic and often cancelled service.
Why anybody would hand over money to Mesa Pilot Development to get involved with this mess has got to be a new definition of insanity.
