I have learned to much from reading the post's that everyone writes, and I thought I would contribute by describing my experience at Flight Safety. I just returned to CA after spending 3 days in Vero Beach checking out Flight Safety. I took their offer on the tour, where they give you a room. I have been reading everything I can, and visiting this web site daily(several times), and decided that it would be best to visit and see for myself. They gave me a visitor's badge, assigned a student to give me the tour. The lady took me everywhere, and answered all 10,000 questions I asked. At no time did anyone try to convince me to attend!! No hard sell . . no sell. They presented the facts, and let me make the decision. I wandered around and talked to several students', and even sat in on one of their ground school classes. The school is extremely organized, and structured. Everyone is serious about learning to fly, and they all seem to want to help each other. I was very impressed. The Pilot Shop, Library, Flight line (operations) every aspect exceeded my expectations. My feeling is that not only will you receive a quality education and flight training, but the school has the contacts to help put you in front of the people that can make a hiring decision. The only negative thing I heard was that sometimes, FS requires more checklist's and procedures than the FAA requires. (Safety) The only negative thing I personally see, is trying to find a place to live!!! It seems that most of the housing is either age restricted, or income restricted, or it is more than I can afford. Other than those issues, I feel it is a great school, and I am going to be attending!!
