Selling entry-level pilots ANY kind of jet training is the biggest aviation scam in North America. You need flight time to get an airline job here, not jet training. The CFI will allow to get a job and build actual PIC flight time. And airlines count every minute of it, sometimes they break it out into different columns, but I have never heard of a regional that discounted instructor time in any way. Get the CFI.

(In Europe and Asia it is largely the other way around)

The reason people fall for this scam even when they ae told the right answer by others is because the percieve the jet training to be fun and cool. CFI training is more work...but like in anything else in life, the challenging road yields a better reward in the long run.
