Former Helicopter Students Sue Bank Over Loans

Former students of Jerry Airola's bankrupt helicopter school have filed a lawsuit against the bank that gave them loans. The now defunct Silver State Helicopters was owned by the former Clark County sheriff's candidate.

The lawsuit accuses Key Bank and Silver State of running a scheme that gave high interest loans to high risk students.

The suit would keep the suing students from having to repay loans, many of which were more than $55,000.

Some of the $2,400 students say they were given loans right up to the day before Silver State filed for bankruptcy in February.
