Hi guys,

I'm considering this school to complete my training but I'm not sure if they can help in my situation.

I'm a spaniard holding a JAA CPL, ME/IR and 315h, although my license is expired, but I still fulfill pretty much all the far/aim requirements.

So I'm looking for a place to train for some 30h or so, and then pass all the checkrides. I already passed the writtens and medical.

I know they are more a Part 141 school, but I wonder if I could train there, since I also consider the CFI route after I get my ratings.

Thanks for your help guys :D

Yes, you are/should be ABLE to train there - I have no doubt they would take you -- if your paperwork is satisfactory.

Are you asking whether this is a good place to train?

I wasn't asking if it's a good place, but of course I'm interested in your input if you'd share it with me please. Knowing they'd take me, that's something I'd like to know too.

As long as your paperwork checks out and you are eligible for visa there should be no problem. Make sure to get a senior instructor to expedite. You may need to get a medical and student pilot license. I don't know if those are transferable.
As of employment, they have sponsored work visas in the past.

I'm a permament resident (greencard), so that wouldn't be a problem. I'm curious about the c152 and their cfi. They use them for all the solo time? I'm 250 pounds and there's no way I could teach in them if they were interested in hiring me of course.

Oh and I got my medical and student pilot licence already, plus ppl/cpl written
