Flight Training International has VA approved 737-200 course in DEN for $5995. Shari Egan scheduled my training on a Friday, and I had my materials on Monday. I leave for DEN to train on 13 May.

FTI also has other training locations for about $1000 cheaper, but it is not VA approved.

Thanks for the responses. Im a corporate 135 driver with 4 business jet types. 2700 turbine PIC. 6300TT.

Im overnighting in LAS and Im going to visit Lone Eagle today. Seems a bit rushed to get a 737 rating in 6 days. I hope its not a gimic where they tell you that you need a partner and more training later after you bust.

From what I have read the 737 looks like a fairly simple jet. Any insight on the 737 oral and checkride?

The check ride is nothing more than what you would do for an ATP. The oral was all systems. This was at HPA.

Best of luck to you in whatever way you decide to go.

Default Question for 1Seat 1Engine

I got mine from Lone Eagle. You do all the prep online before you get there. One day of ground school and 5 days of sims. Drinking from the firehose but it's cheap and done. Right now they're advertising $5995.

Lone Eagle's sim is in Las Vegas and there's a couple other companies that use the same one who also have lower priced programs.
1st post on APC...1Seat 1Engine (or anyone else) if you are still posting, I'm looking to get some additional information on lone eagle for the 737 type rating. Unfortunately, I don't have the requisite 25 posts on APC, so I can't PM yet. Any additional information is very much appreciated!

I wouldn't go to FTI. I know two students that had bad experiences with them. And I knew one of the owners from years back and he was a jerk. I'm not a flamer, just a witness to what I saw.

Default Flight Schools

I'm looking into flight schools & was looking into the Delta Academy, ATP, & Air Safety flight academy. Has anyone gone to anyone of these schools & if so, any thoughts or recommendations? I"m leaning towards Air Safety & Delta. I know they're pricey but I can probably do it w/o any loans. I just would like to know if they're worth the price. Would appreciate any feedback.

I completed a type at FTI Atlanta. Great instructors, syllabus and a straight forward check. The four of us that were in the class were happy. -200 Sim belongs to Delta and is well maintained. I'd recommend them in a heart beat.

I went to a HIGHER POWER...can I hear an amen.

If you use HPA for your type, make sure to diet beforehand, because they feed you like you're an airline pilot.

Good program, good instructors.

I still get newsletters from them.
