Anyone training at Bristow Academy - New Iberia

Recommended Posts

Just curious to see if there is anyone on here that's been training with Bristow in New Iberia, formerly Vortex? I visited Vortex right before they got bought out, and had pretty much decided on them over other schools. However, I'm wondering if the atmosphere or any of the details of the professional pilot program have changed. I visited Bristow Academy in Titusville a while back and was very unimpressed with that school. Vortex was a lot smaller, everybody knew everybody, and the people seemed friendly and kind of laid back there. If I'm going to spend a lot of time and money somewhere and hopefully work for them, I want it to be somewhere I'll enjoy being and have some fun there as well.


Part of the reason I chose Vortex before was their student loan available with their association with Louisiana Technical College. I called recently to make sure that is still in place and it is, but she also informed me that there is now a 3-4 month waiting list and a non-refundable application fee. Are they becoming overcrowded with students now?
