Melbourne, Jul 28: After the attacks on Indian students down under, it is a stunning eduction scam that is hitting the media. In an expose report aired on the ABC TV called 'Four Corners' that was aired on Monday, Jul 27, it was revealed that migration and education agents were fooling Indian students pursuing aviation course.
Sydney based Aerospace Aviation College that promises to provide commercial pilot training and help its students acquire a commercial pilot license is reportedly only been exploiting, mistreating and fooling the Indian students.
Even after paying up to 43,500 dollars, the students have not received enough training. The course that promises 200 hours of flying over 52 weeks has failed to avail the same to the students. The students allege that they have not got enough flying time due to lack of facilities and unavailability of instructors at the institute.
The report quoted one of the students, Surendra Egalapati as saying that he had got only 130 hours of training over a period of 18 months.
These students who identified that huge demand for trained personnel in India's civil aviation sector, flew to foreign institutions to get the best training in the industry. But the institutes which only show big dreams to the students are in reality only causing academic and mental harm to them.
