It's been so long since I instructed out of Long Beach, any comments are out of date. The Long Beach Flying Club as been around for years and I rented there in the 80's. I have a student that now instructs out of Aces High in Long Beach.

I would try a couple of discovery flights out of various places. It's very much a personal fit kind of thing.

What do you think about the following schools?
OR Do you know what any of these schools like?

Every price is for PPL.


1) AFA (long beach)
Cost Accelerated Flight Academy

PPL TOTAL $10,300 (Cessna 152) $11,850 (Cessna 172)

(I think AFA shares aircrafts with the Long Beach Flying Club.
About Us)



2) Pacific Air Flight School (Long Beach)

$12,894 with Cessna 172P - 60hr flying; 65hr instruction; including check ride
(not sure if they have 152)



3)AFI Fullerton https://www.flyafi.com/private
PPL $13195 (152) $15730 (172) -- 65hrs flight time



4) FUNOUTSIDE (Fullerton) FunOutside Aviation - Start Flying Now

Thank you for your advice.
Do discovery/intro flight hours count for hours in your logbook?
When do you first get your log?

Yes, they do. Just buy a logbook from Sporty's or at the airport. Some go electronic from day one.

I'm sorry to resurrect this older thread but I am currently looking to begin my flight training here in the SoCal area (especially: Long Beach, El Monte, Fullerton) and wanted to see if there was any new input with regards to the schools mentioned in this thread. Thanks!
