I thought your Gov't old age cheques at age 60 and 65 covered getting what you paid into the Gov't. Not this kind of payment. It has to come from somewher...

Re: Anyone from the sault want to state their own opinions of the school?

Funny thing though, I know a guy in the program right now, who's going to finish early... I'm sure he's the exception, and not the rule, but based on what I've read here over the last little while you'd think that would be IMPOSSIBLE! Of course, I don't think he's posting complaints on AvCanada. Mi...

They have also applied to Seneca. I have not talked t...

I'm not a Pilot but I am a dad. Does your nephew lurk on this forum? How about getting him to register here and start reading the posts.

But..."Minimum Education: Post-secondary degree, diploma or equivalent."

Re: Seneca Honours Bachelors of Aviation Technology program

Currently a first year at Seneca. There are approximately 100-110 first years, only 30-40 go on to graduate. That should tell you a bit about the failure rate. Courses are a flat 65% pass rate, there's no weeding out process. If you get 65+ in each course, you get to proceed to the next semester. G...

What does good math have to do with flying an airplane? I have been led to believe that math marks in this course is the main reason for loss of students. I sure would like to know if this is the case. I plan to visit the training facility in November to verify what would be the schools policy in r...
