    Okay, so I'm not losing it!!

    Wouldn't surprise if the powers that be changed it though.
    Someday I'll come up with something profound to put here.

Why did I get a Federal Pell Grant? Common Sense, these would not come through if there was no chance.

    Also my Teachers deny this, they have seen a couple felons get hi grades, licenses, and jobs. FAA Part 13 doesn't mention this nor have I
    seen this anywhere in FAA regs.

    I told Job Path that is only Those employers' Policies , Not the law, and I still get denied their help. IDK who they are but I've heard bad
    things about Bombardier by guys who work/worked there.
    No idea who/what Job Path is. There are restrictions for the FAA, TSA, and DHS dealing with felonies. Others posted the list. The look back period is generally 10 years; you would have to read the details to find if ten years from offense or ten years from end of time served.
    Your best bet for employment is likely with a small mechanics shop, not the airlines or corporate to start. Because of the SIDA issues others mentioned.
    (One of the better mechanics I have used was a convicted felon, but that was twenty years in the past)

    Good luck,

    The SIDA restriction (and the DC-3 rules which mimic the same text) are ten years from the date of CONVICTION.
