    Anybody ever use Mike's Flying Service in Terrell, TX? I saw he has some affordable mult-engine training.

    Hmm...

    "Earn your Multi Engine Rating in as little as 3-4 days for no less than $1,800.00"
    Leads me to believe its the min amount and will / may go higher.

    Traverse Air is $1795, same plane, 2 days.

    There's a Twinkie at Charlotte Michigan for $199 walk in, $179 block time. (Great lakes Air Ventures)

    There are a few former students floating around on this site I'm sure... But I'm still here. So far I've only had 2 people go over the $1800 but they wanted more flying time to meet some personal goals they had set.

    Otherwise, If you have any questions feel free to contact me.

    Happy Flying
    -Mike

    I would edit out your e-mail so roving spam bots don't collect it.

    You don't. He'll have to do that.

    Communication is very unprofessional, training is similar.

    @SAR_One I'm still at it, sometimes voicemails get buried so I apologies to those who can't get through. I've been swamped all summer, most of the delay is in examiner availability as I'm sure most of you have found out from Houston to Wichita. Feel free to continue reaching out, it doesn't look like we'll be getting any new examiners in area anytime soon.
    @DForney we've met face to face and had no problems, it was unfortunate our schedules didn't line up. I still wish you luck.

    @Delta Fox Other opinions may vary. To each their own though, but if you had ever trained with me I don't think that this would be your stance.

    I've met Mike and frequented his FBO many years ago. And, although I haven't taken instruction, both him and his late father are fantastic people. It's a very small mom and pop operation and although they may not have the dedicated infrastructure for CSR folks and people dedicated to answer phones at all hours of the day, I'll still pick them over other "big schools" with the extra overhead and the prices that trickle down to the end user.

    Now that said, I definitely favor smaller shops over the US Aviations, American Flyers and ATPs of the world.
