I would like to hear everyone’s opinion as to how a Part 141 flight school is better than a “mom and pop” Part 61 flight school. Aren’t Part 141 flight schools more expensive than Part 61 flight schools? Do Part 141 flight schools have "better" instruction than Part 61 flight schools? Can’t a student fly “everyday” at a Part 61 flight school and still get done in the same time? I know that Part 141 flight schools have stage checks, but Part 61 flight schools can do the same thing, right? Do Part 141 flight schools generally have better airplanes? Do Part 141 flight schools have access to twin engine aircraft whereas Part 61 flight schools may not? Can it be said that there is more “pressure” to get done quickly at a Part 141 flight school? Is a Part 61 flight school more likely to have a shortage of flight instructors than a Part 141 flight school?
