After lots of thinking and listening the opinions of folks here, I have decided against taking out a 70,000 ATP loan and do my flight training over the next 2-3 years at a local FBO while working full time (trying to pay as I go ). I'm in Augusta, Maine the local airport here has a school that is part 141. Is there any advantage of a part 141 or part 61? Am I going to pay more at a part 141? Does anyone know if there are any flight schools in the Bangor area?
