    Dear pilots and trainees: I am writing to request your help in participating in my doctoral dissertation online anonymous survey regarding flight school choice. It will take about 5 to 7 minutes. You have a 1 in 10 chance of winning a $20 PayPal digital cash gift card for participating in this survey. Your survey feedback is essential for flight schools to adjust services and management strategies to maximize the training they offer.
    I appreciate your time taking the survey.
    Researcher: Jingmin Jin
    Doctor of Business Administration Student
    Alliant School of Management, Alliant International University, San Diego, CA, U.S.A.
    Approved by Alliant International University Institutional Review Board
    ___________________________
    Survey participant requirements:

    (1)At least 18 years of age.
    (2)Considering becoming an airline transport pilot or already an ATP.
    (3)Have been enrolled, or currently enrolled, in (airplane) private pilot training in a non-collegiate Part 61 or Part 141 flight school in California (U.S.A) in the year of 2016, or 2017, or 2018, or 2019. (You can be still qualified to take this survey even though you are not a California resident as long as you have met these criteria). https://alliant.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_5dljEV7PuNhgzfT
    ___________________________
    It has been eight weeks since the distribution, I still need about 80 responses. So I have to find you (pilots and student pilots) from this online community. Very appreciate your support with my research!

    Don’t meet the prerequisites for this survey.

    Hmm. Makes me wonder what the objective is.

    Might need a survey of PoA members who are ATP or on that track.

    But, you have "good moral character" (it's an ATP requirement, but obviously some slip through).

    The two don’t always go together.

    I’m a ATP and zero desire to go into today’s 121 field

    But most of the non flying public think the only way you’re a commercial pilot is if you fly for a airline lol

    Make you wonder about education if this type of question is being asked from a college student, let alone a soon to be PHD, who doesn’t seem to have a clue despite the vast knowledge easily found on the internet, or even just at a airport diner, guess she’ll be a news media “expert” after her PHD :goofy:

    The OP should just stand by the gate at Embry-Riddle and snag 80 ATP hopefuls as they’re leaving. Quickest way to complete the survey.

    Guys, reads like self-selecting yourself as a target for an unpleasant "recruitment" - - - "Uh, I need adult Americans, looking to obtain specific skills, in a narrow geo region". . .Then perhaps some one-on-one/personal sifting after that. "Let's discuss having you write a paper on your experience, for a nice fee - then talk about where you'll be flying professionally? Perhaps in military aviation? Or, special operators of some kind?" etc., etc. . .

    Hello, my friend. Thank you for participating in my research and supporting with my study. I am still collecting study data (survey responses), I will try my best to complete my paper before the end of this year. After that, the drawing winners will be randomly selected and the $20 Paypal credit will be sent to the winners. Please do not hesitate to contact me and discuss with my research if you are interested. I would like to hear your opinions. Thank you!

    Problem is people confuse commercial pilots with the commercial airline pilots.
