Thank you for the advice. I've already got my written and a few lesson plans done. I'm just going to have to figure out a way to finish this II.Most schools with any decent amount of students are going to want you to have a II before you come. Might be something to look into. It really shouldn't cost you more than $1,500 including check ride for your II. Take your written and get all of your lesson plans done, do a flight on approaches, do a flight on holds, do a flight on whatever else you feel you need... Then make it happin cappin!
