NORMAN, Okla. (AP) _ The Airman Flight School in Norman is closing its doors.

The school subleases a building and space from the University of Oklahoma at the Max Westheimer Aiport and is reportedly behind on its rent.

An attorney for the company that handles the lease for OU says eviction proceedings started against the school last month.

At least one international student fears she's lost thousands of dollars in tuition because of the closing. Tracey Opoku from Ghana arrived in Norman last month after paying nearly $15,000 to take a three-month fall course at Airman. She says she just learned this week that the school has closed.

The flight school is where accused terrorist Zacarias Moussaoui trained for three months before the September 11th, 2001, terrorist attacks.
