A good deal these days is 125 an hour plus 30 for an instructor; the national average is 60-80 hours for a private. That's 9,300-12,400 just for the airplane. Add 600 for the examiner, 500 for a headset, 600 for books and groundschool or training, and incidentals, and it's closer to 15,000 for a typical student to get to the private.
I'd say it's extremely rare to see IPs bill out at less than $45/hour now. Most flight schools pay $25+ an hour. Many pay over $30.
