I recently put up the same thread for UND, and I am also considering Purdue for flight training, and I'm currently doing my private in Long Island and I live in nyc. My uncle and aunt actually live in Indiana, and my cousin went to Purdue. They live on a farm so that's pretty much all I know of the state, and I've never actually been to West Lafeyette or the Purdue campus. I hear the out of state rates a crazy, but I know at UND after a year or so you can decalre residency in ND and pay in state rates (plus flight training costs obviously). Can you do that in Indiana for Purdue and get in state tuition costs. Anyhow, Purdue sounds like a cool place to do flight training. The 727 sim sounds killer, as does the 400. If anyone from the nyc, upstate, long island, new jersey, connecticut, etc. goes to or is considering Purdue (for flight training or not), or would jsut like to discuss tri state area flight training, please post. Thanks!
