I'm brand new to the forum, but I would like to share a few thoughts. I just spent a total of $6280 for 58 hours of twin time at Aviator College in Ft. Pierce, FL (that's $108 per hour). This price included the checkout with an instructor, and board! They sold me a package deal, not hidden or secret fees. Just great flight time with another pilot (they paired me with). We had one under the hood, and the other was the safety pilot. Because both pilots are required, both can log PIC time. Plus, I'm an MEI. We all won! I don't work there, but I would in a heartbeat. The staff is great, the planes are simple, and the financing is fair! You've got to check it out. I'm sure with an increase in fuel prices that they will be increasing the price, but for now, it's only $98 for 100 hours (the more you buy, the cheaper it is). http://www.aviator.edu/home/flight-training-programs/multi-engine-time-building-programs.aspx As a sidenote, a staff member drove me to the airport at 4:30 this morning. He didn't have to do that, it wasn't in the contract. He could have said "no" wait until business hours, but with the weather today I would never have made it back to Philadelphia.
