I am new here, but am heading for my dream in the very near future. I am looking heavily at several schools in the Florida area, namely Ari-Ben, Florida Aviation Academy, Comair, & Phoenix East. This is what I have found so far: Florida Aviation Academy (FAA) is a 141 school in south Florida, and tells me to forget about going to schools like Ari-Ben and ATP because they pack several students into a multi engine plane and let multiple people log multi time as PIC. FAA seems to have excellent customer service, at least on the phone. Ari-Ben seems like a great deal, considering that I really don't care too much about the age of the fleet, but I am concearned about the real quality of the multi time there. Comair seems too pricey but a good school. Phoenix east seems eager to pitch what the offer but again I think I would prefer somewhere with more multi time. ATP is out for me because of the lack of MGIB bennies. Any input would be appreciated. By the way, I am heading to one SOME school before the next thirty days, as I am taking a leave of absence from my current job for 90 days and must use my VA money before August 6th.
