AAA was given the building to operate the flying school over decade ago, in 2009. The contract made then, for a period of ten years, has been extended at several points over the years since .

The students of AAA's flying school has been complaining about the way the management treats their students for several years now. One of the major complaints lodged against them, in addition to mistreatment, is the financial burden placed on students enrolled in the flying school as a result of the program not being completed within the required 18 month duration. Some students have been enrolled in AAA's flying school for over four years.
