Program Pricing is an Estimate: The Student acknowledges that the projected completion time of the Program is based upon an individual Student’s performance and abilities. The Student is responsible for and must meet the Minimum Requirements and any external FAA requirements. AAA does not guarantee a Student’s course completion or rate of progress. The Total Estimated Enrollment Cost or any other forecast of a Student’s expected tuition or other cost of enrollment is only an estimate. The successful completion of the Student’s Program requires skills, aptitude, diligence and capacity to accept and apply instruction and criticism. Therefore, the Student may be required to complete additional flight training or lessons, and incur resulting additional costs of attendance associated with additional training or lessons, in order to satisfy the Student’s Program. While the Total Estimated Enrollment Cost may serve as a forecast of a student’s expected, minimum costs, such estimate is not a fixed price.

  1. The Student acknowledges that AAA offers all required FAA knowledge tests and other required practical tests that may be necessary to complete the Student’s Program. Should the Student choose to take any knowledge or other required practical test elsewhere, external to AAA, AAA shall be entitled to retain any fee associated with such test and any flight time fee associated with any practical test. These fees, should they arise, shall be charged against the Student’s tuition account. The Student additionally acknowledges that all flight and ground school instruction are integrated into the Program and may not be completed at any institution other than AAA. The Student acknowledges the Student’s agreement to simultaneously pursue the integrated flight and ground school course of instruction in which the Student has elected to be enrolled.
  2. The Student acknowledges that no AAA employee, agent or other representative has made any representations or warranties to the Student concerning the course time necessary for the Student’s successful completion of the Program.
  3. Upon successful completion of the Program requirements, and following the Student’s achievement of a passing score on his/her FAA written, oral and practical examinations, Student will receive the successfully completed Program’s diploma and/or license qualification.

Funding and Payments: The Student has elected to pay for his/her training in the manner specified within the “Administrative Information” form.

Aviation Academy of America Code of Conduct

The Aviation Academy of America (“AAA”) has designed this Code of Conduct (the “Code”) to assist you, the Student, in understanding the principles and standards that govern the conduct of AAA’s business. High standards of integrity are essential to the Student’s success and the continued success of AAA’s business. The Student has an obligation to maintain ethical conduct and professional standards. It is AAA’s policy that all Students observe the spirit and letter of all laws and policies governing AAA’s operations, and conduct their affairs in keeping with the highest legal and ethical standards.

Section 1

Introduction. The policies set forth in this Code may not cover every situation. If the Student is in doubt as to the proper course of action in any specific situation, the Student shall consult with AAA’s Chief Pilot. AAA expects all Students to comply with this Code and to conduct him/herself in a professional manner, at all times. Should any Student fail to comply with this Code, the Student may face severe consequences, including expulsion from any Program the Student may be enrolled within. AAA reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to terminate the Student’s enrollment, in the event the Student violates any of the policies set forth in this Code, the Enrollment Agreement or any other Exhibit to the Enrollment Agreement. In the event AAA expels or terminates the enrollment of the Student, the Refund policies provided within the Enrollment Agreement will control.

Section 2

Unethical and Unprofessional Actions. The following actions are considered unethical and unprofessional, will not be tolerated by AAA and may result in the Student’s expulsion or termination of the Student’s Enrollment Agreement:

  1. Cheating in any way or form, including giving or receiving help from unauthorized persons or materials during examinations; the unauthorized communication of exam questions prior to, during or following administration of the examination; help on exams; fraud or deceit which include knowingly providing false or misleading information; or failing to provide appropriate information when requested
  2. Plagiarism, which includes presenting as one’s own ideas the words, or work of another; or providing use of a source for completing academic assignments without properly acknowledging or properly citing the source.
  3. Unauthorized use or tampering with academic records or transcripts.
  4. Altering, forging, destroying, falsifying or the unauthorized use of any AAA document, record, or ID. This includes the use of AAA’s logo, stationery, business cards or any other documents that AAA utilizes.
  5. Intentional violation of any FAA regulations.
  6. If a student loan funded Student requests a cash disbursement and uses those funds to pay for flight training at another flight school, the student will be immediately dismissed from the Program, the student's account will be refunded per the Refund Policy of the Enrollment Agreement and the Student’s Enrollment Agreement will be terminated.
  7. If the Student does not follow all safety and equipment standards as provided or posted by AAA or any AAA personnel.
Section 3

Undesirable Conduct. Undesirable Conduct is defined as any conduct which compromises or poses a risk of threat or danger to the safety, health or property of AAA, including but not restricted to other students, staff, the Student him/herself, or conduct which is disruptive of the educational process or any other just case.

Section 4

Preparedness Policy: The Student must arrive well-prepared for each lesson. Well-prepared shall mean that the Student arrives to each class or training session with all assignments completed, all homework completed, and otherwise ready for scheduled flights

Consistent with this commitment, all AAA facilities, equipment and campuses (“AAA Premises”) are drug and alcohol-free spaces. Being under the influence of alcohol or illegal drugs (as classified under federal state or local laws) while on AAA Premises poses serious health and safety risks to AAA personnel, other students and potentially others, and will not be tolerated by AAA. Should the Student be found in violation of this Section 6, AAA reserves the right to immediately terminate the Student’s program enrollment and Enrollment Agreement.

Section 7

Inquiries and Violations of this Code: The Student shall report to Chief Pilot at AAA any information or activity which violates, or which may violate, this Code. If the Student is in doubt as to whether there is an issue or about the proper course of action, the Student should consult the Chief Pilot. However, if you are not comfortable speaking with the Chief Pilot or are not satisfied with such individual’s response, you should contact the Business Manager.
