Check out Odyssey Pilot Hours. They are in Colorado. They followed my page on Instagram, so I looked into them. Don't know much about them but it seems to be a safety pilot pairing operation. Provides housing, and quick time, if that's what you're looking for.

Join a flying club that has reasonable rates. Also, flight instruct at the flying club. wash/wax airplanes for flight time. Do odd jobs at the FBO. work as a lineman for flight time. 4 years as a CFI is about average to get to a regional.

I belonged to a flying club for about a year to build time and get my instrument rating. CFIs were exempt from any monthly/annual dues as long as they were actively instructing and still got the member rates when renting aircraft on their own. Maybe you can find a club like that to help cut costs.

Good luck, we have all been there counting every tenth.

Unless new students start pouring in the door soon, this is going to drag out close to 2 more years.
Does anyone have an opinion on the future of the flight schools? I'm new with only 300hrs and no dual given. It seems like it will be impossible for me to get a job as a CFI anywhere.

Just stick it out. Regionals are beginning to hire again which will open up spots at flight schools.

If you are open to travel to where the jobs are located, keep an eye on what is posted on jsfirm.
