New student orientation appears to be the 17th.

And here is one thing that will be good for him--he will be meeting kids from other countries:

"The aviation student body includes people from China, Mexico, New Zealand, Puerto Rico, Singapore, Switzerland and Thailand, as well as missionary kids from every corner of the globe. These students create a diverse learning community that contributes a positive influence on students, staff, and faculty."

 

Oh and yeah, you graduate WITHOUT any flight certifications yet. What a rip-off:

Moody Aviation's FB photos include WOMEN, who appear to be students, out of their fundy uniforms. They are wearing SHORTS and JEANS! (Gasp!))) On the other hand, it looks like the STUDENTS in the (not the students in the hangars) WEAR UNIFORMS to school!!! Has anyone ever heard of a college with required uniforms, other than military academies?

those students look so young! I was thinking I was looking at pictures from a HS version of Moody but I don't see any evidence there is such a division at Moody.

my church's vbs is starting aug 20 to the 24th, public school starts on the 27th. i have no idea why it is so late...maybe to have less competition of other churches in the area? i would think that if kids have already gone somewhere else, they wouldn't go to another church, though. i hope all the older kids volunteered and the rods didn't just drop off the littles.

it could be used as a way to get kids ready to get up again for school or cheap day care for the week before school :)

Oh, also.  Jill posted an anti-abortion thing about someone flushing a baby down the toilet.

Are you serious? Of course you are, this is Jill we are talking about. I am betting she is referring to the miscarried baby born in the bathroom on a plane that was found by the cleaning crew. The mother is a teenager. Since the teenager left the fetus in the bathroom my guess is she was scared and I bet whoever she was with (if anyone) didn't know she was pregnant. https://nypost.com/2018/08/07/dead-fetus-found-on-plane-was-left-by-teen-who-suffered-a-miscarriage/

Might be an eye-opener for Timothy to meet real missionary kids.  Wonder if they do anything with Civil Air Patrol.

So a total of 67 “college” credits which is barely an associates degree at best and no FAA Licenses so wtf are you getting???  What a crock of sh#%!!!!!

I truly hope that young woman, @quiversR4hunting, gets the counseling and medical care she needs. I hope that this is a one-off for Jill, and she doesn't go all TAM on us and start picketing clinics.

Well, they print anti-abortion tracts, and Nurie (and Kaylee) were on the way to a "crisis pregnancy center" when they had their accident, so picketing clinics is a really short step from where they are. Jill just hasn't figured out how to get money out of doing that yet.

Do you think a kid like Timothy who has (for all we can tell) never spent any time away from his extra-large, extra-enmeshed family even has the awareness to be embarrassed by them?   Just wondering if you'd need a sort of baseline of what's normal to compare to to understand just how odd your parents are.

Also Timothy has been broken down and conditioned to believe that the world is full of Godless, heartless, moral less hell bound heathens.  He may feel embarressed for our sad, sorry state. I wouldn't be suprised if he feels extremely distrustful and outright afraid of the kind of people he thinks we are. In some ways, Timothy is a survivor of thge cult of Jill.

The Mr. says our local Civil Air Patrol youth group is primarily made up of strict homeschooled Christian kids.  The adults come from all walks of life, but most have been in the military.  It would be great for Tim to join, even if he has aged out of the youth group.  We have some amazing older War Vets that would make kindly role models for people like Tim.   In 5 years he could get most, if not all of his flying hours in in conjunction to the fluff degree he is getting.

If Timothy really, truly wants to help others and using flying as a way to help others he really should have (tried to ) enroll here: https://www.uscga.edu/flight-school/

Do I think he could have gotten in? I have no idea.

If Timothy had somehow against astronomical odds joined the Navy or the Air Force, I guarantee that he wouldn't have scored high enough on the ASVAB to be to be in aviation rates like aviation mechanics or aviation electrician. I would be shocked if he was admitted to a credible secular aviation institute.

Didn't he just spend this summer away and working at a Christian camp?  He was gone when the girls were in the car crash.

Oh, gosh no.  That's a service academy like West Point, Annapolis and the Air Force Academy and takes a congressional nomination.

It actually doesn't need a congressional nomination.

The Mr. Just told me that the FDA thing is one flight with a person testing you on various maneuvers.  It costs $500.   You can do it for free but only 10% pass the free exam.  He says if they are going to fly missions  in other countries they wouldn’t need it anyhow.  I told him about the crash and he is severely horrified.  Apparently 99% of crashes are pilot error and that someone fucked up putting the plane together.  He said they could be sued for negligence.   A damn waste of life, he said.  :cry:

I'd guess that Tim has picked up on some of the negative feedback his family (i.e., Jill) has gotten and noticed that other fundie families don't get the same kind of feedback.  Even at churches.  He may realize that they don't get to visit the Duggars and Bateses anymore, and that the behavior of people he has met at their events seemed much less glaring than his family's.  I expect that Jill puts her own spin on rejection and odd behavior, but I also think that her explanations would only work up to a point on the kids.

This is very vague, maybe intentionally so.  The school can't promise these certs because only the FAA can grant them, but my question is, the program may provide the technical training required to take these tests, but does it also provide students with the minimum hours of flight time needed?  That is what is expensive...the plane and the instructor's time.

He probably views everybody in the world who is outside of his immediate or known family as somebody in need of "saving" or an "other" of some sort.

It's such a sad, cynical way to approach life.

Looks like there will be at least one woman in Tim’s incoming class.  She is an RN too!

I don't approve of what she's doing in a general sense, but if I did I'd definitely donate to her just for having the moxie to be the only woman in a male-dominated program.
