Conor Deeny is one of six Northern Ireland pupils who has paid out thousands of Euros to the Pilot Training Centre of Ireland (PTC).
"I expected to pay that money and come out with the full licences to become a First Officer with any airline," he told UTV.
Conor moved to America in November for training and has already clocked up around 50 hours of flying time at the Florida Institute of Technology Aviation (FIT), which was subcontracted by the Irish institute to carry out much of its training.
But the Florida College has said PTC owes it million dollars in unpaid fees and training was suspended last month, which means the Claudy teen's visa is invalid and he had to move back home.
The 18-year-old has paid out €91,000, and it is not clear where that cash is, or if he has any hope of getting it back.
"As far as we're concerned we don't where our money is, and do we have access to it? We don't know yet," he explained.
But PTC has said it is now in financial difficulty because of 'non performance' at the Florida college.
The Irish Aviation Authority has suspended PTC's training licence, and on Wednesday an examiner was appointed.
However, FIT, which has now launched legal proceedings against the Irish college, is expected to object to the examinership.
