Some flight schools offer great prices on their web sites, but when students arrive for planned training, they find the flight school fleet consists of only a few aircraft — and they are old and outmoded and spend more time in the maintenance shop than flying with students. And even when they are available, students find themselves struggling to compete with other students for flight time. The result is too much waiting to get on the schedule, and too little flying. At Phoenix East Aviation, we’ve had transfer students tell us that they just gave up on some of these cheaper, local, non-professional flight schools because they were not able to fly often enough to make it worthwhile. This sad story is told over and over; it’s especially sad when we hear it from a European or Asian student who has training goals to meet — and time restrictions based on his or her visa.
Phoenix East Aviation has a large fleet of new and late-model Cessna single-engine 172-SPs and Piper twin-engine PA-34 Senecas, some even with the G-1000 glass cockpit advanced avionics systems. We have a highly efficient computerized flight scheduling system, which means you are able to pretty much fly as much as you like….think of it this way: If it takes you 20 months at a cheaper flight school to complete what you can complete at Phoenix East in 10 months — you can save 10 months worth of rent, food, utilities, etc. What’s that worth? $10,000? 13,000? More? Plus, how much money could you make at a job for that 10 months? Another $30,000? Even more?
So who offers the most cost-effective — and professional training — when you consider both time and money? Decide for yourself. Check out www.pea.com.
