There are some on here that know quite a bit about it - you can also do a search and learn more. They never called me back so I didn't get much info about it. about the eye surgery - I don't know the current rules and regs but they are easy to figure out on-line or through an officer recruiter.

Sorry SK - but that was over 20 years ago. One - I don't remember, Two - I paid $35/hr for a C-152. Those prices don't exist anymore so any comparison is meaningless.

I did Spartan back in '87. I just went a short time for the Comm/instr/multi. They had no college degree offer back then. I did that at a non-aviation school before and after Spartan. While I have no major complaints about the flight training, I have no idea what it is like there now. I wanted loans and fast training. The FBO style flight training I had been doing before was slow because it was pay as you fly and I had NO money.

Tulsa sucks. It was a very boring town. I worked at Tulsa airport nights to help pay for flight training. I got out as soon as possible. I got all my CFI ratings at my "home" airport's FBO later.

Spartan has trained pilots since the 40's. I flew out of Riverside, the MX school was at Tulsa. I came from the San Fran Bay Area, so Tulsa, OK was a huge disappointment. I've done a few overnights there since in the 737 and EMB145. It's still "Tulsa".
