Re: Speeding Tickets and GPA

Thank you for reaching out. I have been reading some forums and people go as far as to mention that speeding tickets are a major airline career killer that is why I was kind of worried before spending lots of money into training. I am also going to go for an M.S. in Aviation Management if that decor...
