SMAC158 What Flight School Is Best For You?

Many people make a New Year resolution to obtain their pilot certificate or new rating. Before the year ends and to help you move towards your aviation goal we will discuss what flight school is best for you.

Joining us today is guest host Dan Freeman of the Accelerated Flight School Podcast. Dan recently finished his commercial pilot certificate and is looking to complete his flight instructor certificate in the new year. This led to a a discussion of how to pick a flight school for his certificate. With that in mind we thought it would be a good topic to help you decide what is the best flight school for you to obtain your new rating, certificate, or endorsement in the new year.
