Default Phoenix East Aviation thoughts?

Would anyone recommend getting training done at this school? I'm laughing towards them but I haven't found any recent insight about this place.
Epic flight academy , new smyrna beach (# of aircrafts) and US Aviation in Denton, TX ( mainly because their cadet program affiliations) are my other two options.

A colleague of mine went to Phoenix East and he didnít stay there for all his training. If I recall correctly, it wasnít the worst place to train, but it wasnít the greatest either. Wish I could remember the specifics of his review.

What I do know personally is that itís an absolute hassle to get in and out of Daytona International. Waiting in excess of 30 mins to get takeoff clearance while the prop is spinning and the Hobbs is ticking is the daily expectation. Meanwhile at my school we might wait 5 minutes occasionally.

Call the flight schools you are interested in. The best thing to do is actually tour the facilities in person, but I understand everyone canít do that. However, youíre going to be spending a lot of time and money with whatever school you go to, so I recommend you take the time to find a good fit for you now.

That is a very good point...the huge wait for clearance for take off and landings!
Would have a good suggestions to get trained in US, preferable with student loan available too?
