    It's amazing to me that the US can't see the irony in this.

    Let them train their own pilots.

    Oh, I forgot, sending airplanes into buildings tends to thin out the number of folks qualified to train others. :rolleyes:

    We have to let Saudi's take flying lessons so we will have an excuse to invade them when their turn comes up.

    These ads are not for terrorists--they are just like Iran when I was going to school sending over engineering students to increase their industry.

    You don't have scholarships in airline safety, logistics and other airline operations if all you need to do is run a plane into a building. This is a ridiculous twist of simple global business.

    China has just done the same thing. A friend of mine is the President of one of the biggest aviation schools in America and he just got a big contract with the Chinese airline to train their pilots and operators.

    This also makes GREAT sense because these pilots are going to be flying in OUR airspace and our business people are going to be flying in THEIR controlled space so you want professionals trained by the best on both ends and there are no better schools than American Aviation Schools.

    Mybe we otta nuke Saudi Arabia and make the desert glow for a few thousand years. (Where's that rolling my eyes icon.)

    Goodness, they want to do business with us and they are a different religion, that's reason enough, isn't it? Puts China in the crosshairs too. If we nuke the entire world then we wouldn't have to worry about anybody touching the good ole US of A.

    But Phillip, don't you know that glass is easier to drill through than sand? :rolleyes: :D

    Contracting to train pilots is not the same thing as giving them free training through scholarships. How much do you suppose terrorists would pay to train a pilot who is going to kill himself?
