I came to Flight Safety with my Private and about 180 hours. I completed my Multi Engine Private, and started on my Instrument. I was talking to a former Flight Safety student, who now flys for a regional airline, and he was telling me the Regionals really pay attention to those applicants who were flight instructors at Flight Safety. So, I determined that I wanted to instruct at FS. However, after starting the Instrument course, I discovered how much money it was going to cost to get my Instrument at FS. So, I started looking around, and I found a place called Paris Air, on the same field as FS. The instructors are Flight Safety graduates, the planes are cleaner and better maintained, and the costs are about half as FS. The guy who owns the place also went to Flight Safety. So, if you are running out of money, this could be a better option for you, it was for me. I will go back and get my CFI at FS, but I am saving around $10,000 getting my Instrument and Commercial at Paris, same training, and no uniform.
