Default CFI Information

Hello Everyone

I am new to the flight world and I want to start training and get my hours for my private license. Is there a website to find a CFI in my area (New york/New Jersey)?

Thank you

Find out which airport(s) are closest to you so that you don't have a long commute for your training. Then go to each airport and visit the flight school(s). Most will give you a tour of their facilities and show you their airplanes. Hopefully you will be able to meet some of their instructors as well. Be wary of those that offer 'packages' or guarantee to get you your license within a certain number of hours. Don't be pressured to put down big deposits, pay as you go is best.

Edit to add:
I just looked at your previous posts and in one of them you claim that you already are a CFI. Am I missing something here??

I was just trying to build a scenario for the future. I have so many questions in aviation because it is such a big commitment. I shouldn't do that here. Sorry

Hello Everyone,

I currently have my CFI, and envoy is one of my main options.
So what are you up to?

Good catch @cons.

I am in my last semester in my bachelor's aeronautical engineering Degree. The plan is to have a part time job and find an instructor for the Private pilot License before joining ATP Flight School and study their full time.

But you said you already ate a CFI, which means you already have your private.

You don't need to start an investigation detective. I am just trying to get the picture for the future.

Corrections free of charge.
You may want to work on your English proficiency also.

And you should get at least a temporary ban for misrepresenting your aviation credentials.
